Transform your law practice for the
price of a couple of cups of good coffee
Important Alert: If you develop some simple, core PDF skills, you’ll be surprised at how much easier your law practice will become. How so? Well…
PDFs Free You From the Inflexible Tyranny of Paper
The more you know how to use PDFs the less you’ll need to rely on paper. Because we’re familiar with paper we tend not to notice how it drags us down.
So, PDFs are the key to a smoother law practice, one that can save you time, money, and frustration.
Imagine a life where you…
- Stop wasting time rummaging around looking for misfiled office papers. Learn to pull up any document you need in less than a minute, even if you’re out of the office, with nothing but a smartphone at your disposal.
- Dramatically reduce how much you pay for office space.
- Can skip going into to the office, but still retain the option to knock out any necessary work—even from a friendly, relaxed place (or, better yet, a sailboat in the Caribbean).
- Quickly and easily sign documents even when you have no printer handy (i.e. when you just walked into a hotel room and get an email with a document attached that you need to sign).
- Don’t pay paralegals to bates-stamp documents. Let your computer do this boring, tedious task 100 times faster, without a single mistake. For Free.
You need to develop PDF skills to take advantage of these things.
The easiest way to learn the core skills is with the free Adobe desktop software called Adobe Reader (did you notice the word “free” in that sentence?)
The fastest way for a lawyer or legal professional to learn those skills is from a book completely focused on how lawyers use PDFs.
And what core PDF skills will you learn from this powerful book? Important things like how to:
- quickly zoom in on hard to read text in PDF pages.
- rotate PDF pages that were mis-scanned, and are flipped sideways.
- search for key text in a group of PDFs (indispensable at a deposition when need to find a key document in seconds). Probably the most important PDF skill for you to develop.
- tag key passages by highlighting them so you can find them quickly the next time you open that PDF.
- place virtual sticky notes on the page of a PDF document or a Westlaw case (sort of like the marginalia you write on the edges of papers you work with, but more powerful because they’re automatically organized for you)
- Use digital stamps to mark PDFS with phrases like “DRAFT” or “CONFIDENTIAL.” Or create your own stamps with whatever text you want to use.
- digitally sign PDF documents. Ever need to quickly sign a document someone emailed you? You can, and once you learn how you’ll use this feature to make your life a whole lot easier.
- Fill out PDF forms, quickly and easily. Even type onto PDF forms that you scan into your computer. Big time saver.
You want to learn these core PDF skills without a lot of futzing around, right? Okay, so…
