Pennsylvania Legal Forms in the Legal Forms Library is comprehensive in the various types of legal documents made available. The forms are Pennsylvania specific  “attorney forms,” officially approved forms actually used at a typical law firm and very different from those documents found in “form books” – generic, do-it-yourself documents that may not have been drafted by an attorney. Completed sample forms are also included.
