With SmartAdvocate® the process of creating templates is hassle free.
We all have our favorite forms, letters, documents, and pleadings that we save on our desktop or in our c-drive for quick access. The problem is that we always have to customize the pleading to fit the case on which we are presently working: The problem with that process is that: All relevant data must be replaced every time you want to use your form for a different case: Names, dates, venue, incident information, facts of the case. This is extremely time consuming. The margin for error is high since you may miss the replacement of a name/date/some other case-specific-fact somewhere within your form. With SmartAdvocate® this process has been eliminated. You will no longer have these worries. All you have to do—and you only need to do this once—is: Open your form in Word. Click on the SmartAdvocate® “Word-Add-On” tab. Replace the relevant information: plaintiff information, Court information, defendant information, incident fact information, etc. with the merge code that has already been created for you. This is accomplished with one click….
