The Portable Document Format (PDF) has become the standard in the legal and business communities for revising, editing and exchanging digital documents, as well as e-filing court documents. The industry-leading software for creating, securing, and analyzing PDF documents is Adobe Acrobat DC. As is the case with most software, many attorneys are using only a fraction of the software's features and functions that would be useful to them.
This webinar provides an overview of some of Adobe Acrobat DC's most useful features, as well as step-by-step demonstrations of how to use them in your practice.
