If you are like most lawyers, you’re either underutilizing Excel or not using it at all. In this segment, we start with the basics and work our way up from there. You’ll learn powerful ways that Excel can improve your work product and make your life easier. Produce flawless estate and guardianship accountings, amortization schedules, real estate closing statements, disbursement schedules, medical bill summaries, and graphical representations of data (pie charts, bar graphs, etc.). We’ll also cover many useful formulas for use with dates, numbers, text and logic (IF THEN).
