You can really tell this was written by someone who actually does legal word processing for a living. There are many. many tricks and hidden features (not to mention things NOT to do) in this book. It deals with the program on a professional's level with an accent on doing things quickly - lots and lots on keyboard shortcuts and macros. If you do legal word processing for money, you want this book.

Format: Paperback
Our legal office has used WordPerfect for years. However, in the past year, the newer generation attorneys being hired use Microsoft Office Word 2007. As legal secretaries we have had a hard time transitioning from WordPerfect to Word. Letters in Word were no problem. However, when it came to pleadings we definitely struggled. For example, we could not line up the words to the numbers on the pleading paper, etc. I searched the internet to find a book that would help us learn what we were doing wrong. I came across this book and it was exactly what we needed. As mentioned by previous reviewers, this book teaches you all the shortcuts and tricks needed to do your job quickly and efficiently. On the last page of the book, there is a discount coupon for a training session with Ms. Berinstein. Our secretarial staff signed up for a training session. If you get a chance, you should do so too. Jan is wonderful! She has helped us tremendously. I would not say we are experts at Word now, but we are getting there! I highly recommend this book. It is well worth the money as is the training session.

Format: Paperback
The title of this book correctly states "Legal Documents" but the content applies to any type of document. In over 15 years of training people on Microsoft Word, I still find the majority do not use styles, have never created a Table of Contents, and waste a huge amount of time formatting. And I won't go into most users not knowing keystroke shortcuts.

This is where Jan Berinstein comes in with a well-written, easy to follow, and properly organized book that will show any Word user how to format their document. If the reader only looks at the lesson on styles, he will learn how to get a more properly formatted document that is much easier to modify.

If you want to take control of Word, you need this book. Using the lessons will allow you to leave work at least one hour earlier (if only in your mind).

Click the button and order this now. Then, sit back and learn how to conquer Microsoft Word.

Format: Paperback
My main recommendation for "Formatting Legal Documents With Microsoft Office Word 2007" is that it is not another Word for Dummies primer. This book (thankfully) assumes that we all know how to save, print, bold and quit. Dr. Berinstein who has consulted for years in the legal profession as a word processing trainer, has clearly been listening to her clients.

As promised in its title, Dr. Berinstein's book provides the kind of advanced 'how to' information that lawyers and legal secretaries need in order to produce richly featured and professionally formatted documents. Beyond this however, the book demonstrates that the voodoo features of Word and its irritating determination to 'help out' when you just want to be left alone (let's not kid ourselves, the malevolent ghost of clippy lives on in Word 2007) can be mastered.

If you are looking for a template for a will, power of attorney, mortgage or merger agreement, this book is not for you. If you already know what you want to say but fear that your document's mixed up paragraph numbering, corrupted cross-referencing, staggered line spacings and cocktail of fonts are making you look like a dummy, then this book is a must have.

Format: Paperback
First year law students endure and master the Rule Against Perpetuities, thanks to the "Rule Against Perpetuities In A Nutshell" study aid. Lawyers and law firm staff will endure and master Word 2007's powerful legal applications, if they purchase Dr. Berinstein's "Formatting Legal Documents With Microsoft Office Word 2007".

Dr. Berinstein's book focuses on Word 2007 functions germane to the word processing of legal documents. Many Word "how-to" books do not, with the specificity of Dr. Berinstein's book, address key legal document word processing issues. If you are in the legal profession, and intend to use Word's power beyond "cutting and pasting", you should immediately get a copy of Berinstein's well-written book.

Dr. Berinstein's book offers many practical tips and warnings that greatly benefit the legal professional using Word 2007. Dr. Berinstein writes clearly, which is a challenge in writing about a powerful program like Word.

Format: Paperback
Not many people can utilize the full power of Word 2007 because not many people can figure out how it works! And therein lies the forte of this book: Dr. Berinstein's ability to reveal the full potential of Word 2007 through step-by-step instructions on how to create complex legal documents as well as how to use and understand Word 2007's basic functions. The book's speciality is the preparation of complex legal documents, but I don't think you necessarily need to be a legal professional to benefit from the book since the basic functions of Word 2007 are also used by the business and corporate world.

Buying this book is a small price to pay for the value of the expertise therein, especially the inside tips and techniques that make using (and troubleshooting) Word 2007 sooo much easier. My advice is, if you want to learn how to use Word 2007 without pulling out all your hair AND be the office guru, you really should get this book.
