When I first reviewed TheFormTool in 2012, I called it smart, simple document assembly. My opinion has not changed. TheFormTool is an add-on to Microsoft Word that makes it easy to create document templates and generate documents using those templates. The basic version of TheFormTool was then and still is completely free. Even the more feature-packed Pro version is a bargain at a one-time cost of $89. The company’s database-driven Doxserá software is for creating multiple or repetitive documents and costs $129 a year.
Today, TheFormTool is announcing a new product line, a series of collections of what it is calling “intelligent forms.” These are form templates for various areas of law practice that are compatible with TheFormTool Pro and Doxserá and that are fully editable and customizable by the lawyer.
In other words, they eliminate the first step of using TheFormTool, which is having a form. These suites would be most useful to lawyers who have not already developed their own form sets or who are moving into a new area of law practice.
Launching today is the initial suite of forms, Elder Law — Preparing for Disabilities. It consists of 26 forms comprising 57 pages and more than 1,300 fully automated variables, the company says. (Follow that link to see a full list of the forms in the suite.) Coming May 15 will be the second suite in the series,
Coming May 15 will be the second suite in the series, Business Law — Company Formation and Operations. It will consist of 46 documents comprising 341 pages.
Thereafter, the company plans to release one or two subject-specific suites each month. Each library will include a free sample form that you can download and try.
The price for a lifetime license to the elder law forms is $285. The price for the business law suite is $465.
