State Specific Automated Legal Forms
Running a law practice, or just practicing in a firm, is difficult. We don’t need to tell you why. You know why. Access to automated forms is essential if you want to be profitable, reduce errors and liability exposure and enjoy your practice. There are many reasons why lawyers might practice without an automated document program but an excuse that it is too expensive is no longer one of them. This site makes state specific automated forms for estate planning, elder law and probate attorneys available for free to lawyers in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Access is only available for lawyers admitted to practice law and not the general public. Currently only members of the bar in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts are invited to register for access. Answer files generated are encrypted using a proprietary third party application and inaccessible to anyone other than the drafter. Generated document delivery is controlled solely by the drafting attorney. We know security is important to you; it is important to NEEP too.
Legal Shareware – For Lawyers
We want to develop and build what you want and need. Do you have a form you want to have automated? Great – send it to us! Do you want to see our forms revised? Great – let us know and revisions will be considered or a new alternative document may be generated where lawyers just disagree. There are no perfect forms but together we can develop better forms; forms that take into account our preferences, stylistic choices and differences in legal opinions and practice experience. To submit forms to NEEP you must be able to establish that you are the forms creator or have copyright privileges. All automated forms on NEEP are available to registered site lawyers with a license to use in their individual or law firm practice. If an attorney or other party believes that their copyright has been infringed upon, please contact NEEP immediately so that we can remove the form or text until the issue has been resolved.
Practice & Case Management
You may be a good lawyer but even good lawyers are not always skilled in practice and case management techniques. NEEP makes checklists, workflow, handouts and other practice management information freely available. Not every lawyer has the benefit of a mentor in practice or case management but we think some of the materials on this site might help bridge that gap. Contributions are welcomed. There is no perfect practice. No one size fits all, but collectively our experiences are invaluable. Preserving those practices in a space that belongs to lawyers is an important objective of NEEP.
Directory of Professionals
Rated by lawyers registered with NEEP, the professionals in the directory offer services frequently used by estate lawyers. Where appropriate, pertinent information of those professionals can be integrated into the automated planning documents available on NEEP as a quick and easy resource for the drafting attorney. Thus, letters can be quickly addressed, the name and EIN of charitable entities and gifting directions can be accessed with a single click, or a corporate trustee can be properly named and researched within the drafting process and pertinent language integrated with a single click. NEEP directory members and integrated third parties financially support this site but do not control what lawyers draft using NEEP.
