MS Word Add-in
Lawyaw users build their templates directly in their MS Word application. Although all of the saved information lives on the application servers, attorneys can take advantage of the robust formatting features that come with MS Word.
Ready-made Court Forms
Lawyaw is a California Judicial Council partner. With that, they can provide a host of approved California court forms. Additionally, they maintain 5000+ USCIS immigration forms in their system and are adding more all the time.
Since acquired by Clio in late 2021, they have added form libraries for all fifty states. Although they may not have exactly what each lawyer needs for a specific jurisdiction, their customizability allows users to add forms as they see fit.
Who Lawyaw is For
Lawyaw is for attorneys who want to create smart documents in an intuitive and easy-to-use way. The user experience is clean, and their team puts a lot of effort into balancing usability with the power of what the application can do.
Attorneys who want to simultaneously create multiple documents with conditional logic in them will find Lawyaw powerful enough to do so. While, those who want straight-forward template building, will find the MS Word add-in feels, somehow, familiar. Lawyaw has efficient eSignature tools, an intuitive user experience, and still allows complex MS Word formatting features.
Additionally, attorneys who use Clio Manage will find the platform especially helpful. As there is a two-way sync capable of keeping Matter and Client information up-to-date.
On the other hand, although users can send forms to their clients to fill out, Lawyaw does not handle guided interviews as elegantly as some other platforms. Accordingly, this may not be the solution for practices who are looking to lean -into productizing their services.
