Litigator and Legal Technology Pioneer Shares Success with Spreadsheets

Make the most of the software you already have.

Did you know Excel can help you analyze and present your cases more effectively or help you better understand and manage complex business transactions? The Lawyer's Guide to Microsoft Excel 2007 will show you how.

John Tredennick is the author/editor of four best-selling books on law and technology issues, a 20-year trial lawyer, and a pioneer in the field of legal technology. Now he has produced a guide book uniquely designed to help lawyers improve their efficiency and increase their productivity with the most common spreadsheet software on the market.

Designed as a hands-on manual for beginners as well as longtime spreadsheet users, you'll learn how to build spreadsheets from scratch, use them to analyze issues, and to create graphics presentation. Key lessons include:
  • Spreadsheets 101: How to get started for beginners
  • Advanced Spreadsheets: How to use formulas to calculate values for settlement offers, and damages, business deals
  • Simple Graphics and Charts: How to make sophisticated charts for the court or to impress your clients
  • Sorting and filtering data and more

The Lawyer's Guide to Microsoft Excel 2007 will help you take advantage of one of the most powerful software tools that you already have on your desktop. It is written by a practicing lawyer for other practicing lawyers and will help you put it to work in your own practice.
Praise from Colleagues about The Lawyer's Guide to Microsoft Excel

"Realizing there are lawyers who still aren't using spreadsheets is like discovering your neighbor has an outhouse! John Tredennick's The Lawyer's Guide to Microsoft Excel 2007 demystifies spreadsheets for newbies and offers tips even veteran users will appreciate, all in clear, friendly, everyday language. John's enthusiasm comes through on every page of this quick read."
--Craig Ball, Attorney and Forensic Technologist, Certified Computer Forensic Examiner

"If you want to jump-start your use and understanding of Excel, this is the book for you. John Tredennick brings Excel to life with useful examples for all attorneys." -- Browning E. Marean, DLA Piper US LLP

"Spreadsheet programs are one of the most powerful but underutilized tools in the trial lawyer's toolbox.
