Offering Free Legal Forms

Law firms can offer free legal forms as a way of generating traffic to their sites through the DirectLaw platform.

The DirectLaw platform enables you to offer free forms/docs via your Web site (to serve as a traffic driver or complementary for your existing clients), and allows you to designate how you want those free docs to be handled by the system.

All options related to documents are found within the Customize Store tab of the Attorney Dashboard.  Within the list of available documents, you will see 2 options with respect to how you want to handle any docs you designate as "free".

Free to Download -- this option allows a user to open the online Questionnaire associated with a document; complete it; and immediately download the completed documents (without submitting to the firm for review).

Free to Submit
-- this option allows a user to open the online Questionnaire associated with a document; complete it, and Submit it to the firm. In this case, the firm would need to review, finalize and upload the doc back to the client before the client would have access to it.

Overall, it really depends on what you're comfortable with and which forms you offer for free (there may be some where you want to be involved in the process). 

We've had requests from firms for each type of workflow, so we thought it was best to provide a self-serve interface so firms can decide how they want to handle their free docs.
