Texas Litigation Volume

The ProDoc Litigation volume levels the playing field for small firms against the big ones. Small firms can now go toe-to-toe against the big firms and their unlimited resources. That’s because our automated documents make document generation so fast that a single secretary with ProDoc out-produces the support team of the large firms.


This automated system encompasses all areas of litigation. We’ve automated more than 1,150 procedural forms from client intake through appeal.

We’ve also automated discovery requests and responses for your specific causes of action. Since ProDoc assembles boilerplate documents in mere minutes, it frees up much more time for you to focus on the details of your case.

Additionally, the Litigation system contains the State Bar of Texas' Collections Manual 3rd Ed.1, selections from the Texas Pattern Jury Charges1, and also includes substantive pleadings in areas listed below. We've also included agency forms from the EEOC, TWC, and the Department of Motor Vehicles, as well as the Proof of Claim for Bankruptcy, and numerous UCC forms.

The automated forms in this volume cover:

 
1.
Letters
You will find the letters here that you use every day in litigation matters. And, when you use these letters, you are entering client and case information that is never entered again for the life of the case.
 
 
 
2.
Motions Practice
You will find that the ease of drafting motions enables you to draft two, three, or more motions in the time it takes your opposing counsel to draft only one.
 
 
 
3.
Orders
We include orders with nearly every motion to save you even more time.
 
 
 
4.
Discovery (general and specific for each particular type of claim)
We’ve automated the discovery process to eliminate much of the drudgery from discovery. This feature alone will save you many hours on every case.
 
 
 
5.
Pleadings
We specifically offer a shell petition with all of the standard jurisdiction, discovery control plan, identification of parties, service, and standard damage requests. You type in your facts and any specific causes of action to quickly create a unique pleading for you case.

We also offer a general denial, as well as an original answer, that includes special exceptions, motion to transfer venue, a plea to the jurisdiction, and counterclaims.
 
 
 
6.
Trial work-up Motions and Orders
We’ve automated these documents to save you time because you have bigger issues than drafting these documents to concern you.
 
 
 
7.
Motions and Orders for Use in Trial
If you use a laptop computer, you can draft the motions during trial — they’re that easy!
 
 
 
8.
Post-Trial Documents
All your judgments, motions for JNOV, mistrial, Findings of Fact, and Conclusions of Law, etc. are at your fingertips. And remember, since ProDoc saves all the case data, you enter very little new information to draft these documents.

9.
Pattern Jury Charges
It’s now so easy to draft the State Bar of Texas Pattern Jury Charges1 that you can draft them at the start of any litigation matter, not just your big ones. And, of course, all the jury charges for damages are included. You will often find that reviewing all of the jury charges provides you with insight into new causes of action. Or, they may remind you of all of the elements needed for a particular cause of action.
 
 
 
10.
Mandamus and Appeal
Everything you need to begin your appeal process is at your fingertips here. And, remember that most of the data is already in there so these documents practically write themselves.
 
 
 
11.
Alternative Dispute Resolutions
You’ll find that mediation and other dispute resolution procedures are now a much simpler matter with our automation of the documents you need.

Also all in there.
