Adobe Acrobat is a wonderful product for lawyers, and getting better all the time thanks to the fact that Adobe has identified the legal profession as a target market. In our office we have moved heavily toward the idea of the paperless office, and Acrobat is the critical component of the plan. All documents in and out of our office are converted using Acrobat into .pdf format and then saved electronically. We also used Acrobat to apply "bates" numbers to documents, and to create settlement packages, and other documents combining text and graphics.
The Adobe Corporation has created a blog entitled "Acrobat for Legal Professionals." It is chock full of tips and tricks, including a series of self-help training videos that I am frequently viewing. You can check them out too, by clicking here.

Thank you for visiting the Family Law Lawyer Tech & Practice blog. My name is John Harding. I am a family law lawyer practicing in Northern California. Long ago I realized that I could practice law more effectively and more efficiently (i.e., better and easier) by availing myself of the technological tools that are out there. I also learned that a successful law practice requires successful marketing. Hardware and software working together make me a better lawyer, and make my life easier. Marketing helps to bring in the business necessary for professional survival. By this blog I hope to share the tips, tricks, and technology that I have learned about so that others may benefit!
