For more than a decade, SmartLegalForms, Inc., has been revolutionizing the way legal services are delivered by re-engineering legal processes and developing new ways of providing access to the legal system.  Our commitment has always been increasing access to the legal system for consumers and small business.

SmartLegalForms, Inc., through its ground-breaking DirectLaw Virtual Law Firm Platform for solo and small law firms, enables firms to deliver “unbundled” legal services over the Internet for a fixed fee.  DirectLaw®  adds a virtual law firm platform to any law firm’s Web site and includes a suite of applications enabling lawyers to work with their client’s online.

SmartLegalForms is now pleased to offer a version of its DirectLaw platform to non-lawyer legal document providers and other organizations that provide law-related services directly to consumers.

This offering is consistent with our commitment to enable increased access to the legal system for all.  There are multiple ways to reach consumers, and the provision of legal services by lawyers is only one way of helping consumers solve their legal problems at low cost. Our tools and applications are made available by different kinds of legal solution providers, including court systems and federally-financed legal service programs to facilitate access to the legal system for all at an affordable price.

SmartLegalForms, Inc.,  was founded by Attorney Richard Granat in 1998  to provide affordable legal solutions to consumers and small businesses over the Internet. Since 1998, we have created and managed over 30 legal-specific Web sites that serve consumers and small business directly by offering automated legal forms and free legal information. With over a decade of experience in serving consumers and small businesses directly, SmartLegalForms, Inc., is uniquely positioned to provide a virtual delivery platform for legal document preparers and other professionals who want to provide legal forms and legal information to their clients and customers.

By pushing the boundaries of delivering technology, SmartLegalForms and DirectLaw, Inc. have helped pioneer radical changes in the legal industry.

We are a company with:

 An advanced technology platform that supports the delivery of legal solutions over the Internet.
 Developed legal content and automated, state-specific legal forms/document libraries;
 A world-class proprietary document automation solution called Rapidocs®, licensed from Epoq based in the United Kingdom.
 Skills in developing and programming Web-based applications and creating legal information Web sites.

Our Corporate Culture

  • Disruptive innovation, ingenuity and creativity are watchwords for what we do.
  • We work together in an informal and mostly virtual environment to produce high-quality, market-leading legal solutions.
  • Our staff say that working at SmartLegalForms is as challenging as it is rewarding due to our groundbreaking technology and a fast-paced, yet supportive atmosphere where everyone has the opportunity to make a difference.

We are a fast-growing company, yet still small enough to care about individual people, and big enough to partner with household names and Blue Chip clients.  As such, our staff turnover is one of the lowest in the industry. Many of the employees who started with us a decade ago still work for the company.

We use our own “virtual office” technology to manage our operations throughout the United States and Canada.

  • Corporate Headquarters are based in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
  • Core operations are based in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C. metro area.
  • The Document Automation Team is managed from Chicago, Illinois.
