How to Generate Samples

To generate a sample legal document we ask that you use fake names and addresses which are either:

🤿 Inherently funny (with a legal theme); or

🌊 Adopt an ocean / nautical theme.

⚖️ Legal Theme Names

In our Family Law Binding Financial Agreements, to add some humour we have used Robert (Rob) Mee and Susan (Sue) U.

🌊 Ocean / Nautical Theme Names

When a lawyer's name is required, we have often used ⩴ Captain Cicero, which is also the name of our chatbot.

An example of a nautical themed party name we have used is ⩴ Captain Jack Sparrow.

There are no wrong names/addresses.

Please don't be offended if we decide to change the names/addresses you have worked hard to invent.
