Anyone have any good tools they like to use to improve / check for grammar and readability for legal writing?

Not much of a “tool,” but when I’m about to send something in or file something, I print it out and stand up while editing it. I catch way more errors that way. I think it’s just a matter of being displaced/out of my comfort zone that makes me more attentive

Read it aloud. Harder to miss errors that way.

I used Grammarly Premium for a while when I was editing a law journal. It was really helpful, although I can't say it's particularly fine tuned for legal writing.
