Last Updated: January 3, 2020




Dorna Moini is the CEO of Documate, a no-code software platform for turning templates and forms into intelligent workflows. Documate empowers lawyers to create powerful document automation, collect client data and build full-fledged legal applications.

Documate was born out of necessity in the legal aid community. Moini and her co-founder first helped nonprofits and pro bono attorneys at law firms build client-facing workflows for domestic violence survivors, asylum applicants and low-income tenants. They quickly realized that the software could be used by anyone in the legal community to help them build legal apps without learning how to code.

Prior to starting Documate, Moini was an associate at Sidley Austin, where she litigated retaliation and trade secret cases. Moini holds a BA in economics from NYU, magna cum laude, and a JD from the USC Gould School of Law where she was an editor on the Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice.

Moini was named to the Fastcase 50 list and chosen as a "Legal Rebel" by the American Bar Association for her work in using technology to improve access to legal services.

Re: Edward McCaffery

Edward McCaffery wrote an op-ed suggesting that President Trump's tax avoidance, which was recently uncovered by The New York Times, tells a greater story of debt and desperation. "For the whole time he has been living rent free in the White House, Trump has been a desperate man, facing massive debts and looking for someone else to pay them off," he wrote.
