When you were a kid and dreamed of becoming a lawyer, I bet you had the image of standing in front of a jury arguing your point, and eventually winning. I’m sure nowhere in that dream was an image of you sitting at your desk muddling through a massive pile of forms.
Now that you are an attorney, you know that forms are one of those necessary evils about the practice of law. Every legal matter involves forms; many as a matter of fact. Unfortunately they are time consuming, require entering the same data repeatedly, and can just be a nuisance. Sometimes it seems like you spend more time completing forms than actually lawyering.
What if you were able to alleviate some of that hassle with the use of a new tool available on WestlawNext? That’s right.
