This is perhaps the single most important software program a modern litigator should have. It will create the very popular PDF file from your scans and Microsoft Office (and other) applications. To be fair other programs are available to make PDF files at a lower cost. But with Acrobat Professional 8 litigators can apply the very necessary bates stamp and utilize more secure redaction methods. Acrobat also includes a basic but very useful web spider to obtain evidence off the web and convert it to PDF so you can use it at a deposition or in Court. If you have an active litigation practice just buy a copy.
