General Comments

  • When constructing search terms, be sure to include both factual AND legal terms. If you know a "term of art" use it.
  • Use Fields/Segments when known to search for a term(s) in a particular section of the document.
  • Use numerical and/or grammatical connectors
  • Use a root expander and wild card character where applicable.
