Originally published in the September 18, 2012 issue of SmallLaw: There's nothing unethical about charging flat fees for legal documents, and keeping your prices intact even if you reduce the amount of time you spend per document. So how can you crank our documents faster? Typing lessons? Nope. Document assembly software (some call it document automation). In this issue of SmallLaw, New Jersey lawyer Ed Zohn reviews Pathagoras 2013, which works inside Microsoft Word. Ed explains how Pathagoras works (and how well it works), how much time it takes to learn, what types of legal documents it best suits, and whether it's worth your time and money. Also, don't miss the SmallLaw Pick of the Week for a business plan that will doom a new solo practice.
