Here’s a great blog post about how to use Acrobat to create searchable PDFs when a shady opponent tries to deprive you of optimal production in E-discovery. If you have put off learning about E-discovery because most information about it is lifeless and boring, then you should pay extra attention to the blog I linked to. It’s written by Craig Ball.
Craig Ball is a renowned national expert in E-discovery, and since I know him personally I can also say he’s a great guy too. Craig is a scary smart fellow, who made a good deal of money practicing law for many years. He now spends most of his time helping lawyers and judges figure out how to deal with E-discovery.
Several attorneys have developed national reputations as “e-discovery experts.” I know some of them, and respect all of them for their knowledge and commitment. The thing that sets Craig apart, however, is his ability to explain both the practical and technical issues. Craig writes well, and is a master storyteller.
No one can explain E-discovery better than Craig. No one can make it interesting the way that Craig can. So, if you might ever have to deal with an E-discovery issue in your law practice (hint: will you live for at least 6 more months?) then you should bookmark Craig’s weblog and read it regularly. Or better yet go to his blog and enter your email address in the box at the top right so you don’t have to remember to check it.
Then tell me in a few weeks if you don’t agree that all of his posts are interesting, and incredibly practical. Some are downright indispensible.
