Is it legal to sell legal documents?

Posted by Obed Fernandez on

The sale of legal documentation templates is a well-established market. As long as the appropriate disclaimers are made then it is reasonably safe to provide this service. My customers can save significant amounts of hassle and money by using my templates as a starting point. They customize their document according to the annotations in the document, then they send the draft to their own attorney for review, discussion and approval. The cost savings from taking this approach instead of having your attorney write the document themselves can be huge, plus you end up with an end product that has been used successfully before in the context of software development, consulting and startups.
