On this episode of How It Works: Woodpecker, AI-enabled legal document automation for solo and small firms. Joining me in the video below to introduce Woodpecker and demonstrate how it works is founder and CEO Alex Melehy.

Melehy and his team of engineers and attorneys say they believe that generating accurate legal documents should not be something that consumes the resources of small law firms. They created Woodpecker to empower attorneys, paralegals, and legal administrators to automate the generation of frequently used legal documents, all from within Microsoft Word.

Woodpecker is designed to be intuitive so that anyone can build powerful templates and client intake questionnaires, without the need for expensive consultants or IT resources. Woodpecker connects to over 3,000 other apps via Zapier, so documents can be generated without ever opening Word.

In this video, Melehy provides an overview of Woodpecker, and then demonstrates six key features:

  • Basic template building.
  • Save template to collection.
  • Populate the template individually.
  • Populate multiple templates at once.
  • Populate templates using questionnaires.
  • Populating templates suing data management.
