Web-Enabled Document Automation for Law Firms and their Clients
A Turnkey Document Automation Solution. Our DirectLaw™ Web Service is unique. It is the only proven web solution that enables law firms to offer legal services online with no major, upfront capital investment required and includes:
* Customized law firm "back-end" web site which integrates with your front-end (client-facing) web site.
* Automated legal documents, web hosting, continuing tech support and training.
* Ability to efficiently serve online clients and in-office ("offline") clients.
* SmartLegalForms® which include Questionnaires completed by your clients, either online or offline. Detailed instructions and explanations are included as appropriate.
Online clients complete an Online Questionnaire within their web browser (i.e., Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc.).
Offline clients complete paper Questionnaires and return them to you, ready for input into the DirectLaw™ system, which instantly creates the legal document.

We are a trusted provider to many of the world's leading financial institutions and now provide access to legal services for over 1.5 million of their customers in the United Kingdom and the United States.
