Designed to bring efficiency and accuracy to your forms completion, this program will enable you to:

  • Eliminate repetitive typing and duplicative proofreading—enter case specific information once and it is automatically placed in all relevant documents prepared for your client's case.
  • Customize the system to your specifications—select names, addresses, and phone numbers for attorneys and courts from lists you can prepare and edit. 
  • Access statutory material directly from the form, which allows you to check statues or conduct research without having to consult other sources. 

The comprehensive collection includes: Administration and Probate Forms; Ancillary Probate Forms; Guardianship Forms; Issuance of Death Certificates for Individuals Missing at WTC; Judicial Accounting Forms; Small Estates Forms; State Model Bar Forms; Tax Forms; Wrongful Death Forms; and more.

This publication is intended to provide authoritative information regarding the subjects covered. Efforts have been made to ensure that information is current and accurate, within the constraints of publication schedules. It is sold with the understanding that neither the publisher nor the authors and commentators are engaged in rendering legal services. If legal advice or other expert assistance is required, the services of a competent professional should be sought.

NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS INTENDED FOR USE BY LICENSED ATTORNEYS. IT IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR INDEPENDENT THINKING. YOU SHOULD FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH RELEVANT STATUTES, CASE LAW, AND STANDARDS OF PRACTICE, AND THOROUGHLY REVIEW ALL GENERATED DOCUMENTS.
