Lawyaw, part of Clio, announced today that the company has expanded its library of court forms to include Michigan and Ohio. Legal professionals in these states can now access thousands of fillable, web-based court forms through Lawyaw’s newly expanded legal document libraries, helping them save time and avoid errors compared to manual processes like retyping information repeatedly to fill out sets of standard forms.
“Expanding our court form database to Michigan and Ohio creates opportunities for even more legal professionals to save time while improving their services for clients,” said Tucker Cottingham, General Manager of Lawyaw at Clio. “Since joining Clio, we’ve been able to rapidly scale our court form libraries to meet the needs of more legal professionals, and we’re just getting started.”
Over 2.5 million legal documents have been drafted on Lawyaw, which now offers court form libraries, including US Customs and Immigration forms, as well as eight states that include California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, and Texas. Lawyaw was the first document automation company to offer an integration with Clio, and the company continues to offer unique opportunities for Clio users to use contact and matter information to easily fill documents.
While the pandemic fuelled major shifts in technology adoption, using cloud-based technologies to manage legal documents offers benefits that extend beyond attorney efficiency to client accessibility. As many as 62% of law firms shifted to electronic documents during the pandemic, according to the 2020 Legal Trends Report. Research data also showed the vast majority—95% or higher in most cases—plan to continue using these technologies beyond the pandemic. Lawyaw’s streamlined legal document technology can improve how lawyers file forms to meet the specific needs for their clients, reducing barriers clients may face, such as distance, hours of availability, or personal circumstances.
For practice areas that commonly use standard forms—like probate and family law—Lawyaw helps law firms fill up-to-date forms quickly and easily to help improve efficiency and to save time. Lawyaw enables law firms to auto-fill court forms and convert Microsoft Word-based legal documents into easy-to-populate online templates. Clients need only enter their information once to simultaneously fill standard forms and custom templates while minimizing the risk of error. Legal professionals can complete projects faster and more conveniently with Lawyaw’s federally-compliant electronic signature tool. Additionally, because Lawyaw is cloud-based, it enables teams to work remotely while streamlining tasks.

What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
