Quality writing on a tight deadline
Unless you’re striving for comic effect, never use this word.



Legal writing is inherently traditional, so is two spaces between sentences. It is one of the ways that writers use white space to effectively separate ideas and make documents more "readable". Two spaces helps this separation in the same way that indentations, paragraphs, and page breaks help.

Two spaces are also more formal, have zero negative effects, and (probably in most people's opinions) look better. So why not?
