There are many times when clients will bring documents, records, phone bills, tax returns, or financial statements in to the office with their comments or observations written directly on the document. This is fine if the comments are on a copy, but it can be very problematic if the comments are on an original. If the comments are on an original, it may require a lot of extra effort to obtain another original, or, it may render the document unusable in court. So, the next time you want to mark on a document, stop and think: “Is this an original? Should I make a copy of it and then make my comments?” Or just use a Post-It!
