Originally published in the July 31, 2012 issue of SmallLaw: In TL NewsWire in January 2012, we were the first to report on a new document assembly add-on for Microsoft Word called TheFormTool PRO. Since then, the company has shipped a new version. In this issue of SmallLaw, Microsoft Office expert Jeanette Otis, who works for a Bloomington, Illinois personal injury lawyer, reviews TheFormTool PRO. Jeannette used it for several months on real documents to find out if it's a worthwhile investment for a small law practice. In her review, Jeannette walks you through the installation, basic features, and advanced features — and also bestows a TechnoScore. Also, don't miss the SmallLaw Pick of the Week for good advice about how to escape a trap in which many managing partners find themselves.
