Welcome to #LoMac Google+ Community. This community arose from the desire of MILO (Macs in the Law Office) Google Group members to meet up on a regular basis and to supplement (not replace) the excellent MILO listserv. In-person meetings will be held in Massachusetts, but with options for remote participation. Please visit/subscribe to this G+ Community for meeting and resource updates. 

LoMac also has a Mac + iOS resource page at http://www.masslomap.org/lomac. 
More attorneys are using Macs, iPhones, and iPads in their practices than ever before, and more are switching every day. Here you will find tips and resources for lawyers and law firms using Apple products. Original inspiration for this resource comes from Macs in the Law Office (MILO) Google ...

A few months ago, Anna Byrne demonstrated how she uses TextExpander in her practice. As a follow up, I thought you might be interested in a recent post by +David Sparks about a comprehensive guide to TextExpander by Asian Efficiency.  Here it is: 
The gang at Asian Efficiency just published a comprehensive guide to using TextExpander. You can see they spent a lot of time on it and it includes many screenshots and screencasts to get you rolling. If you've been having trouble wrapping your mind around TextExpander, go check it out. ∞

TrialPad app on sale this weekend for $49.99. Thanks to +Matt Yospin for the find! 
TrialPad for iPad is an easy-to-use app for preparing and presenting compelling presentations for trial. Litigators know that presenting evidence electronically is a winning strategy for large, high profile cases.

Thanks to all who participated in today's LoMac meeting.  We were fortunate to have +Victor Medina speak about this year's #MILOfest.  If you are a Mac attorney and don't know about MILOfest, you should look into it.  It is the premier Mac attorney conference.

Victor graciously offered a discount to LoMac'ers for the conference.  

Use the code "LOMAP" at check out to receive a $75 discount.  The discount is good through August 15.

Does anyone here use OmniFocus for task management?  I have a client who is interested in it, but would like to speak with a fellow user.  Let me know if you would be willing to discuss it with her.  Thanks!

I looked at it, but when I got Clio I ended up going with their built in task manager.
