Event Details

Unless you've been living in a remote wilderness cave, you've probably opened a PDF on your computer or smartphone in the last week or two. We lawyers and legal professionals now rely on PDFs to do a lot of our critical work. But how adept are you at using PDFs? When someone sends you a PDF with a misrotated page do you instantly know how to rotate it? Can you navigate through a PDF as quickly as you can a stack of paper?

If not, then you don't need more fancy software. You need some basic tips on how to work with PDFs as easily as you work with paper. The free Adobe Reader program can help you save time, and find key information more quickly. This 1 hour webinar will show you how to:

  • Find key words and phrases quickly in a single PDF, or group of PDFs
  • Create searchable comments and highlighting, and edit them to tag key issues
  • Set options that best facilitate working with legal documents
  • Navigate through PDFs quickly, easily
  • Zoom in on hard to read text, and zoom back out instantly 
  • Rotate pages super fast, without futzing around looking for menus or tool buttons.

You'll also find out if you really need the $300 Adobe Acrobat program, because we'll explain the key features that are of interest to most lawyers. Speaking of which...

Even folks who use Adobe Acrobat (which costs at least $300) can benefit from this webinar because most of the things we'll show you are things you probably aren't doing. Attendees will get 2 one-page handouts (in PDF format, of course!) that can help you remember the key points from this webinar.
About the Presenter
Ernie Svenson practiced commercial litigation at a large New Orleans firm for 20 years before starting his own solo practice in 2006. His solo firm operated with little overhead because his practice was completely paperless. He was able to go paperless because he learned how to do as much as possible with PDFs. Even though knowing how to use PDFs provides a great advantage to lawyers and other legal professionals, Ernie didn't keep his discoveries a jealously guarded secret.

Ernie's been publishing his best PDF tips and tricks on his website, PDF for Lawyers, for over 10 years. And he just finished his ABA-sponsored book entitled "Acrobat in One Hour for Lawyers," which should be released sometime in the Fall of 2013. Ernie is presenting this webinar through his company, which puts on webinars and CLE seminars in Louisiana. His unrelenting mission is to help his fellow lawyers learn how to use technology to work smarter, faster, better, at lower cost and with less stress.


What should I have on hand to get the most out of the webinar?
You'll get more out of the webinar if you have the latest version of the free Adobe Reader program (version XI), which you can get by googling the phrase "free adobe reader" or you can click here.

Is my registration transferrable?
Absolutely! Your payment entitles you to one connection. Who connects, and how many people view on that connection is up to you.

What is the refund policy?
If you can't make it you get a full refund—anytime up to 24 hours after the event. In fact, if you don't attend we'll probably notice and just refund your money automatically. We don't like to take money from people who didn't get the benefit of our webinar. But if you want to email us and ask for the refund, that'd make it easier for us to ensure you get your money back.

What versions of Adobe software are covered?
This class is geared to lawyers and legal professionals who use the free Adobe Reader, but non-power users of Acrobat will find it helpful too. Think of it as teaching basic PDF skills, mostly: how to navigate, search and view PDFs.

Will a recording be made that I can watch later?
No, but we will probably repeat the live webinar. To get notified of future webinars subscribe here.

Can I get CLE credit for watching this webinar?
Nope. We set the price low to reflect that it's purely for learning, not for getting CLE credit. We will probably create a recording and offer CLE credit in Louisiana later. If you want to be notified when we do that subscribe here

What if I have other questions not covered here?
Feel free to email Ernie Svenson at and he'll get back to you promptly. You can also call him directly on his cellphone - 504-202-0688.
