I attended Heidi Alexander's presentation on Evernote for Lawyers at ABA TECHSHOW 2017 and thought at the time that she should be a guest on our Digital Edge podcast to talk about Evernote. As it turned out we were able to arrange that fairly quickly. Sharon Nelson and I are pleased to allow Heidi an opportunity to further showcase her expertise in our podcast Evernote for Lawyers- Manage Your Research, Marketing, and Process where she discusses basic features for the beginner and tips for the advanced users.

Earlier this year, the American Bar Association published Heidi's book Evernote as a Law Practice ToolHeidi Alexander Evernote Book Cover Read some excerpts from the book here. There is even a ebook edition.

I think Evernote and its now-free competition Microsoft OneNote meet a basic need for lawyers more as a free form digital notebook than as a note-taking app. I love the ability to capture web pages so I can easily find and read them later. But both of these have powerful note-taking features. Personally I like the theory of using both Evernote and OneNote, one for personal matters and the other for business.

Alexander-HeidiBut that approach means that you may not become a power user of either program. So I'd encourage you to read all of the linked resources above and see if Evernote is the tool you can use or if your basic use can be upgraded to power user.

But first, enjoy the podcast.
