Lawyaw is a cloud-based platform that turns Microsoft Word-based legal documents into easy-to-populate online templates using AI, cutting the amount of time you spend on document assembly in half.


While most attorneys have a library of Microsoft Word-based document templates in a folder on their computer, the manual process of generating new documents from those templates can be time-consuming, to say the least.

This process has attorneys digging deep into folders to find a document that best matches the matter at hand, then painstakingly hunting and pecking through that document to make sure every piece of information has been updated.

This old way of working with templates wastes a lot of time and is prone to errors. Meet Lawyaw. By using Lawyaw, you can turn your frequently used Microsoft Word documents into templates that you can fill accurately, twice as fast.

Here’s how Lawyaw helps streamline your document drafting in three easy steps:

Upload your Word documents. First, you’ll upload any Word-based legal documents to your Lawyaw account. Lawyaw turns your documents into fillable templates you’ll be able to use for any client within 24-hours. Lawyaw shows you which part of the document is fillable, and even mentions how many times each piece of information will be used in the document.

Once you’ve uploaded your documents, you’ll be able to see a list of your templates within your account. You can even edit existing or create new templates within the platform.

Generate your documents twice as fast. When you’re ready to generate a document from one of your templates, Lawyaw makes it easy for you. By showing you just the parts of the document that need to be updated, then automatically populating that information into the right place, you’ll get your finished document twice as fast.

If you’ve filled out information for a client previously, Lawyaw remembers and can auto-populate information into your next document, reducing data entry and saving you even more time.

Make your final edits in Word. Finally, once you’ve generated your document, you’ll be able to download a fully formatted Microsoft Word version of your document so you can put on the finishing touches. Take that, sensitive Word formatting!

Unlike that document template folder on your computer, Lawyaw’s online platform allows everyone in your firm to access your templates. Centralized templates mean your team can work together to generate documents more quickly, and maintain brand consistency to help you drive the value of your firm.

Bonus for California attorneys: Lawyaw has over 5,000 California Judicial Council and local court forms in its platform so you can streamline your court form drafting and free up more time to spend with your clients and grow your business. What’s more, Lawyaw is a publisher of the California Judicial Council and instantly updates forms when they’re available, which means you’ll always have access to the most recent court forms.
