TypeLaw was founded by Chris Dralla and Andrew Baker in 2014. Chris is an attorney and saw in his own practice that there was a need to have a better way to automatically format briefs. By reducing the time he needed to spend on the technical details of a brief, he found that he could better focus on the legal argument. Chris decided to transition out of working as an attorney so he could build and share TypeLaw with the rest of the legal community. Since the company was founded, over 500 attorneys have used TypeLaw for over 3500 briefs.
TypeLaw is based in San Francisco and is Bloomberg Beta’s first investment in legal technology.

Prompt service. Great support. Saves me hours instead of using the Word or Word Perfect TOA and TOC software. Program is not without its quirks but once you know it, it's really a time and accuracy saver.

It saves me from having to go to therapy for stress induced by tables, formatting, etc. Seriously, speed, efficiency, quick feedback to questions. Can't live without it now.
Nancy Brandt, Esq.
You provide a terrific service at a reasonable price. Completely reliable, fast turnaround when needed, and the formatting is perfect.
Laini Millar Melnick, Esq.
TypeLaw fills a need that could only otherwise be filled with hiring someone to do the work in office. In my practice I don't have enough work to support a full-time or part-time assistant, so this is the perfect solution.
Tanya Dellaca, Esq.
Your product is very professional looking, done well, timely, and for a reasonable price. The answer to a sole practitioner's prayers!
Michael Pinkerton, Esq.
It saves a ton of time. It would have taken a staff member at my office 1-2 full days to do what TypeLaw did. The price is tough to beat, and I plan on using TypeLaw for all of my future appellate work.
