Evan, you've hit the nail on the head. When I see a brief with an introduction that simply summarizes the procedural posture of the case, or, worse yet, merely states that the brief is submitted in support of the party's motion for [insert relief here], I shake my head when I think of the opportunity the writer wasted (of course, if it's my opponent, I smile as well).

I find that it's easiest to write a strong and effective introduction if I draft that section of the brief last, after I have had as much time as possible to digest the facts and law.
