When it comes to your law firm’s success, optimizing workflow processes (like drafting) is imperative. According to the American Bar Association, using automated document assembly software is the most efficient and accurate way to draft your clients’ legal documents. Not only does a good drafting system automate the drafting process but it should also be continuously updated and improved so it reflects current best practices, laws, and legal strategies. Wealth Docx® and Business Docx®—the premier drafting softwares for estate planning and business planning do just that. They were created with the input of hundreds of industry experts and are constantly monitored and updated by a team of knowledgeable industry leaders. Now you can meet the team behind the software—our Editorial Team works tirelessly to update, optimize, and customize Wealth Docx and Business Docx so our members can rest assured that they are creating superior documents for all of their clients. Please, say hello to our team:
