New Jersey attorneys need an easier way to manage the onerous task of creating, filing, and storing legal court forms.
Microsoft 365 is an excellent place to start for any small to mid-sized New Jersey law firm. Programs like Microsoft Word are now “must-haves” for attorneys who also manage their practice but it still doesn’t complete a law firm’s practice management toolset. Even with if-then-else statements, merge fields, and Find and Replace, no attorney can argue that Microsoft Word is an application built specifically for legal professionals - whom have the responsibility of creating and filing multiple court forms without any room for error.
The following scenario is all too common for law firms in New Jersey: you search for the right court form, consolidate client information from loose post-it notes and journals, and manually key in matter details only to find that you’re missing information from your client or you have accidentally made a mistake.
Microsoft 365, although important to your business, is only the first step in properly managing court forms and legal documents. These applications still fail to sync information between client and matter information, provide data input, or follow the strict guidelines of integrity that are applied by New Jersey bar associations. It’s important to take these Microsoft 365 tools and enhance them for your practice with the latest legal technology. Doing so will make your workflows more efficient, your services more attractive for clients, and your firm more profitable.
