Cheryl Evans, President
After 20+ years working in law firms on litigation and appellate cases, Cheryl started her own company, determined to help the legal community move forward with technology. In 1992, she founded Evans Training & Consulting. In 2001, the business was incorporated as ETC Enterprises, Inc.
In 1989, while working as a paralegal at a Phoenix law firm, Cheryl wrote what some believe was the first user-friendly book for legal professionals on the effective use of technology in their practice. Since then, she has co-authored two additional books and has also written numerous articles for publications such as Law Office Computing, Legal Assistant Today, and Arizona State Bar Association member newsletters, among others.
Cheryl combined her writing skills and her extensive technical knowledge when she was retained by Summation to author their Quick Start Guide and a massive help file for Summation's iBlaze product line. Law Office Computing lauded these materials in a review of the iBlaze product (April/May 2001): "iBlaze comes with a wealth of well-written support materials in booklets, internal help files, and online...." She also assisted inData with TrialDirector 5.x and 6.x documentation and white papers.
As a result of her years of standing in front of classrooms of attorneys and paralegals, Cheryl has been invited to speak at conferences and workshops. She has also appeared as a guest on Oprah and on a local TV community events program discussing her volunteer work as a CASA. (CASA always needs volunteers!) Read more about Cheryl's background.
Another volunteer effort that Cheryl supports is Free Arts of Arizona, a program to introduce to children "in the system" various artistic expressions, from dance to acting to painting to crafts.
