Following in the footsteps of bloggers like Ernie the Attorney, Adriana Linares and of course, Grant Griffiths (I’m sure that there are many others, feel free to out yourselves in the comments), I finally broke down and succumbed to the appeal of the Mac. But as I describe in this guest post at Home Office Lawyer, buying a Mac isn’t a technological advancement, but instead, a return to my law schools days when I bought my first Mac and realized the power of technology. But you’ll have to visit Home Office Lawyer to read the post….

  • Congrats. I love the fact that more and more of my favorite law bloggers have moved to Mac. I converted in October of last year and I could not be happier. I look forward to your feedback and your insight related to Macs in your law firm setting. Good luck and have fun with the Mac.

  • I really enjoy your site. And I don’t much care which computer one uses if it meets the need. I just hope “My Shingle” doesn’t morph into “My Mac.”

  • Well done Carolyn.
    LexBlog, including all IT folks, is a mac shop. Superior equipment, support, and innovation. Not aware of anything that cannot be on a mac that can be done on a PC.

    I opened my solo practice early last year and jumped at the chance to use a Mac (a G4 PowerBook, to be specific) in my law practice, as I had been using a Mac for several years at home. The large firm that I left used Windows machines, and they never measured up to my Mac at home. I applaud your move back to Mac. They’re reliable and, for the solo practitioner, completely sensible, because they save time. You don’t need to spend an inordinate amount of time worrying about viruses, etc. Now, with Intel-based Macs, which can run Windows (if you absolutely have to run Windows), there really is no reason not to use a Mac.

When you’re able to accomplish more in less time, everyone wins. Your clients will get more for each billable hour they invest in you, and you’ll make more money. A lot more. Consider this: If a lawyer, who charges $365 an hour (the median rate for a consumer law attorney[1]), bills one extra hour per week, they will earn an additional $18,980 annually.
