SAN FRANCISCO & VANCOUVER–March 22, 2022– Lawyaw, part of Clio, announced today that the company has expanded its library of court forms to include Maryland and Massachusetts. Legal professionals in these states can now access thousands of fillable, web-based court forms through Lawyaw’s newly expanded legal document libraries, helping them save time and avoid errors compared to manual processes like retyping information repeatedly to fill out sets of standard forms.
In six months since Clio’s acquisition of Lawyaw, state court form libraries have doubled for legal professionals to access and implement into their workflow. In a rapid scale up of this efficient technology, additional state libraries are anticipated this year, meeting the demand of customers who seek libraries in their jurisdiction, saving them valuable time and resources.
Almost 3 million legal documents have been drafted on Lawyaw, which now offers court form libraries, including US Customs and Immigration forms, as well as eight states that include California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, Texas, Michigan, and Ohio. Lawyaw was the first document automation company to offer an integration with Clio, and the company continues to offer unique opportunities for Clio users to use contact and matter information to easily fill documents.
While the pandemic fuelled major shifts in technology adoption, using cloud-based technologies to manage legal documents offers benefits that extend beyond attorney efficiency to client accessibility. As many as 62% of law firms shifted to electronic documents during the pandemic, according to the 2020 Legal Trends Report. Research data also showed the vast majority—95% or higher in most cases—plan to continue using these technologies beyond the pandemic. Lawyaw’s streamlined legal document technology can improve how lawyers file forms to meet the specific needs for their clients, reducing barriers clients may face, such as distance, hours of availability, or personal circumstances.
For practice areas that commonly use standard forms—like probate and family law—Lawyaw helps law firms fill up-to-date forms quickly and easily to help improve efficiency and to save time. Lawyaw enables law firms to auto-fill court forms and convert Microsoft Word-based legal documents into easy-to-populate online templates. Clients need only enter their information once to simultaneously fill standard forms and custom templates while minimizing the risk of error. Legal professionals can complete projects faster and more conveniently with Lawyaw’s federally-compliant electronic signature tool. Additionally, because Lawyaw is cloud-based, it enables teams to work remotely while streamlining tasks.
