Research Resources

The Rutter Guides in Westlaw and the Matthew Bender Guides (as well as California Forms of Pleading and Practice) in LexisNexis both provide many excellent sample documents.

The San Francisco Law Library offers free access to Westlaw/LexisNexis in hour-long intervals.  It is an excellent resource and probably sufficient for an attorney just starting out.  I looked into plans with both Westlaw and Lexis.  Although I had always used Westlaw, I ended up getting a plan with Lexis due mainly to the steep discount they offered me as a new solo.
