Saves Time And Effort

an excellent product-it will save me hours of work and research

Review of the United Kingdom version
Very Useful
31 March 2013
Very useful, great value for money, positive experience when I asked questions. I'd have no hesitation in using or recommending Net Lawman. Only niggle was (as the last reviewer said) rather primitive layout. The primitive layout might be an advantage since it's more likely to be compatible with older versions of word processors.

Good Base Document
26 March 2013
A very useful document to provide (most) of the text and structure I needed. The text needs a little updating to cover modern communication facilities like blogs, websites and email. It's format is also fairly basic, but entirely understandable as many people do not understand TOCs and Styles; these I embedded myself. Overall; good value for money.
