Trust and TypeLaw: why our clients rely on us

We realize that having attorneys and paralegals trust us with sensitive—and occasionally confidential—information isn’t always a quick or easy process. However, we believe that TypeLaw offers a quality, completely confidential service, for the fraction of the cost it would elsewhere. To clarify further on why we feel so strongly that we’re the right service for you, it helps to go through how we started working with briefs, how our current service works, and the plans we have for the future.

TypeLaw was founded in 2014 by a California lawyer, Chris Dralla, and a software engineer, Andrew Baker. The two founded our company in order to address a common need among many brief writers: formatting briefs is time intensive, and inconsistent. The pair’s goal fully realized was to create a service that can take a draft of any brief, in any court, and turn it into a ready-to-file PDF, that was also editable at any point. This goal stemmed from Chris’s initial frustrations as a brief writer himself, where he often found himself spending on time on formatting where it could have been better spent putting more work into the content of his briefs. In the present day, 5 years later, this goal has been achieved, and we currently work with dozens of clients on a weekly basis. In addition, because Chris started work as a lawyer himself, he realized the importance of security: the company was created from the ground up with confidentiality in mind…

Now in 2019, we’re humbled and proud to say that we’ve been trusted by over 500 attorneys to do more than 3,000 briefs. We’ve dealt with cases in every court in California and numerous courts in the Federal court system, as well as in other states. For the briefs we’ve helped on, the substance has ranged from small petitions in the Superior Court to large Supreme Court decisions (see: the recent Rosen decision). Security is our top priority, and we maintain high standards to keep our client data secure.

One of the most important reasons we believe TypeLaw is the right service is that we are constantly looking towards the future, especially with new, innovative ways to process and improve briefs. Notably, we recently implemented hyperlinking as a free add-on to any brief. This service allows anyone who uses TypeLaw to link all of their sources to the appropriate authorities, greatly improving the quality of their brief. Importantly, this is something the court has begun to recommend: [insert quote here]. We also keep track of court announcements and changes on a daily basis, and modify our service as quickly as possible to make sure we stay up-to-date. These are just a few of these ways that we make sure TypeLaw (and therefore your briefs!) remain future-proof.
