ScanSnap – Essential for Your Paperless Law Office

I am regularly asked by other lawyers to help them go paperless. Here’s my 4 step process.

  1. Start by making your new files paperless. So many lawyers get bogged down in how many paper files they have and how long it would take to scan them all. Don’t worry about this. Start by making every file going forward paperless.
  2. Invest in a scanner. I love ScanSnap.
  3. Pick a cloud based service. PC Mag has a list of services you may consider. 
  4. Use Adobe to manipulate your PDFs – add pages, move pages, redact, edit, etc. Adobe Pro comes with a ScanSnap. If you are a Mac user Adobe Pro is not included in your ScanSnap. I love Adobe DC. It is the best buy in SAAS. A steal at $14.99 a month.

That’s as simple as I can make it. What are you waiting for? Do you hate saving money? Have a thing against trees?

I have been paperless for 4 years. I have no file cabinets. No copier. And I use 2 toner cartridges a year.
