There are employers outside the legal field who will not hire someone with poor grammar skills. You can read one employer's view on the matter here. Of course within the legal field, where a misplaced word can cause litigation, grammar really does count. Answering an inquiry recently from a lawyer wanting to work on grammar skills, I recommended the same things I use with my law students: Core Grammar for Lawyers, which is an inter-active, on-line program, and Richard Wydick's book Plain English for Lawyers.
