Autofill Mandated PDF Forms No Matter How Archaic They Look
April 17, 2024
Gavel automates document creation and PDF form filling by enabling you to build custom forms with support for logic and rules, third-party data connections, and an AI assistant to speed up form creation.
The Killer Feature
Many courts and government agencies require using their PDF forms. Traditionally, this meant using PDF software to painstakingly create editable fields in the PDF and then manually entering the information.
Gavel now automates PDF forms by connecting them to its platform. You start by recreating the PDF form in Gavel, which supports many field types. Gavel forms run in a web browser and support autofill from your computer and integrations with third-party software such as your billing or practice management system. Your clients can even complete forms if applicable. Gavel places this data into the corresponding fields in the mandated PDF form without you having to fuss with it.
Other Notable Features
In addition to PDF forms, Gavel generates legal documents in Word format. Gavel includes an AI assistant called Blueprint that can help you build forms faster. For relatively simple legal documents, you can create a do-it-yourself online legal service as Hello Divorce has done for uncontested divorces. Whether generating a Word document or a PDF form, Gavel integrates with DocuSign for digital signatures.
