Legal scanning is a process that takes place when an e-document, such as a PDF or Word file, is scanned for legal information. Legal scanners are trained to scan documents in order to extract text from images and convert it into searchable text. It can help reduce the time needed to prepare documents for review by attorneys

3) It saves money because you don’t have to pay paralegals or employees to do the same work Legal scanners do.
