Document Generation’s Impact on Billing and Practice Management: It’s More Than Just Documents

Presented by Jonathan G. Blattmachr, Esq. and Martin M. Shenkman, Esq.

Document generation software can be used to efficiently generate estate planning documents, but creatively applied it can have a broader impact than just generating routine documents for your practice. Document generation software can enable you to expand the services you provide, provide goodwill to existing clients in ways that otherwise would not be feasible, facilitate your taking full advantage of the laws of trust-friendly jurisdictions, and more.

Have you really harnessed the full power of document generation software? In this program, renowned estate planning attorney Martin M. Shenkman joins esteemed writer, speaker, and InterActive Legal co-author, Jonathan G. Blattmachr, to discuss the myriad ways document generation software can expand your practice, generate goodwill with clients, increase efficiency, and create a bridge to the next generation of clients, promoting continuity for your firm. Even seasoned veterans and early adopters of document generation software will learn new ways to leverage it in order to meet their long-term business goals. Whether you are looking to expand your client base, generate more revenue, or increase your work-life balance by getting the most out of your time, this presentation will offer tips for making the most out of this powerful tool.

Drafting The 15-Minute Estate Plan Using InterActive Legal

This video demonstrates using InterActive Legal to draft an estate plan for a married couple in less than fifteen minutes. Efficiency tools (such as custom profiles and document packages) are used to minimize drafting time when default options are appropriate for a client. However, the drafting attorney can always deviate from his or her custom defaults when necessary. The power of InterActive Legal’s drafting systems is magnified when you customize it for your own firm’s use, greatly minimizing active drafting time.

Automated Drafting System

InterActive Legal Co-Founder, Editor in Chief, and legendary trusts and estates planning attorney, Jonathan Blattmachr, speaks to how your clients and your practice will benefit from an automated document drafting system such as InterActive Legal… as well as the consequences of ignoring the opportunity.
