Expanding its footprint with state bar associations, Benchly adds The Florida Bar to a growing list of member benefit relationships.
Houston, TX, February 22, 2023 Benchly, a leading provider of brief automation technology for law firms, announces that it has contracted with The Florida Bar to become an approved Member Benefit provider to introduce its ezBriefs product to Florida Bar members. This marks the second relationship with a state bar for the company in the last quarter, the other being with the State Bar of Texas.
“The Florida Bar is pleased to announce the addition of ezBriefs to the more than 60 approved member benefit providers in The Florida Bar Member Benefits Program” said Teresa Eyerman, Chair of The Florida Bar Member Benefits Committee. “This new benefit will be a good fit for Florida Bar members who prepare briefs and rely on Tables of Authorities when preparing their own brief or when reviewing briefs from opposing counsel.”
Benchly’s ezBriefs platform increases both efficiency and accuracy for Floridian legal teams handling complex documents containing cited authority. As a Microsoft Word Add-In, legal drafters can conveniently create Tables of Authorities, confirm all cited authority within a brief is formatted correctly, gain favor with courts with automatic hyperlinking insertion, review briefs from opposing counsel faster, and adopt an entirely easier briefing process from start to filing.
The ezBriefs Microsoft Word Add-In has unlocked the ability for legal practitioners across the United States to produce more accurately built briefs with enhanced efficiency. Now, Florida Bar members can access ezBriefs at a lower cost than their out-of-state counterparts through the Benchly and Florida Bar Member Benefit. To facilitate this, Benchly is offering all Florida Bar members a 10% discount to ezBriefs as an appreciatory gesture for the opportunity to add value and efficiency to those members’ practices.
“The strategic agreement between Benchly and The Florida Bar provides an exciting opportunity for both parties; however, really it is The Florida Bar members who will benefit from this relationship” said Haydn Jones, Director of Business Development at Benchly. “We are enlightened that the already accessible ezBriefs platform is now offered to Florida legal teams as an attainable Member Benefit in a reduced-cost offering.”
Further, “The Florida Bar’s addition of Benchly’s ezBriefs as an approved member benefit speaks to our company’s core value of offering better briefing tools for legal professionals at an accessible price point” said Zane Russell, CEO of Benchly. “Working with The Florida Bar is an exciting opportunity for our organization as a whole and we look forward to adding value to The Florida Bar and its members.”

Benchly maintains several values that contradict a “corporate-esque” mainstream that so many clients experience in the litigation process today. Benchly pivoted early on from subscribing to that approach and rather upholds values associated with maximizing the value-add of litigation support services to both legal teams and their own clients. Overall, Benchly ensures that the quest for technological advancement, superior service, and cost-effective solutions will never compromise the value-add customers experience from the company.
