Motions Practice: The Introduction

The Illinois Trial Practice Weblog has a good post on what should be in the introduction when writing a motion. You can find it here. The gist of the post is that lawyers should not use the introduction to just introduce what is to come but should instead provide an clean executive summary of the motion. Most lawyers summarize in the introduction intuitively but this lucid explanation is worth reading even if you do.
