Buffalo, New York, May 2, 2022— The Western New York Law Center has been running free consumer clinics in Buffalo since 2012, and free clinics to help low-income residents with business law issues since 2016. TheFormTool, LLC, developers of software to automate documents in Word, has joined with the Western New York Law Center to provide aid to clients navigating the complex business law matrix in New York State and to help consumers with debt problems. The software allows Law Center staff, volunteers, and law students to screen and determine prospective clients’ eligibility for clinic services and provide them with a tool to aid them through the entirety of the small business and debt process.
“TheFormTool’s software has been instrumental in producing quality, professional legal documents in a quick and efficient matter. In 2022, our CLARO Buffalo Legal Clinic helped 820 clinic visitors. With a volume of this size, being able to give our volunteers the ability to utilize TheFormTool’s Doxserá software in Word to quickly produce error- free documents for our clinic visitors is key to being able to serve our Western New York community.”
“The software allows users to easily automate existing documents in Word through tables where users answer questions. Our new Small Business Suite of documents contain 46 documents consisting of 341 pages and includes forms for General Partnership Agreements, LLC Preorganization and Operating Agreements, and many other forms that will save our attorneys and volunteers hundreds of hours of work.”

We’re delighted to have assisted and witnessed Western New York Law Center’s tremendous growth over the past eight years as it filled an essential need by using technology to leverage the efforts of staff and volunteers. They appreciate the consistent quality of documents when created by Doxserá even when used by people with widely varying experience.
