About TheFormTool

TheFormTool is a Microsoft Word-based document assembly application. It automates the process of creating forms like wills, leases, engagement letters, and intake interviews. It is also able to perform relatively complex mathematical calculations and will automatically correct syntax errors, such as subject-verb disagreements.

Who TheFormTool is For

Unlike many programs that charge per user or impose recurring charges each month or year, TheFormTool’s PRO version costs $89 for a lifetime license. That makes it a good fit for a solo attorney who wants to explore document assembly at a relatively low cost and who deals with a lot of data-heavy forms. However, TheFormTool only works on Microsoft Word running on a Windows desktop—there’s no Mac version and no cloud access.

Review page. TheFormTool automatically creates a review page showing all of the input variables for your document. This allows a user to see all the changes at a glance rather than hunting through the entire document. This can be useful for attorneys making a multitude of changes across a lengthy contract, for example.

Master list library. There are a number of items lawyers use frequently across documents, such as a signature block. TheFormTool stores those pieces of information in one place so they can be easily deployed in any form.
