Use Case

Document Assembly for Law Firms

Document assembly apps help you — and the people you serve — effortlessly prepare legal documents while cutting down on rote data entry and drafting errors. The use cases for document assembly apps range from internal workflow automations to public-facing lead generation and information apps. Community.lawyer is here to help you explore these possibilities.

Step 1

Create a document template

  • Use the template editor to connect your apps to PDF documents by assigning variables for the data and signatures your app collects.
  • Create fillable PFDs without the need for another platform like Adobe Acrobat, Webmerge, or PDF Filler.
  • Create dynamic and beautiful documents with our Microsoft Word plugin (Coming soon!)

Step 2

Build a questionnaire to collect data

  • Use the App Builder to quickly author a questionnaire that collects data from the end-user, which can be you, another lawyer, or a client.
  • Add complex logic to show/hide questions or create branching logic.

Step 3

Activate your app for public or private use

  • Activating your app for public use (sharing it across the Community.lawyer network) is free; keep your app private for a small fee (see pricing).
  • Download your code at any time. Your app is built on the leading open-source expert system, Docassemble.
