Time And Billing Software

Many attorneys who have switched from Windows to the Macintosh are former Timeslips users.  At one time, Timeslips was available for the Macintosh. Best (formerly known as Sage) discontinued Timeslips for the Macintosh in August of 2002.  

There is nothing exactly like Timeslips for the Macintosh.  But that is probably a good thing. Timeslips was never popular for its ease of use, its interface, or its service and support.  For many of the time and billing programs available for the Macintosh, those things are strengths.

As you can see, there are lots of choices in this category. Over 40 different programs! This author doesn't have the time to test them all.  However, the first dozen or so listings here are long-time favorites in the Macintosh community and are listed roughly in order of their apparent popularity among Mac-using attorneys (based on the feedback that I have received).

Stand-Alone Accounting Programs

There are a huge number of stand-alone business accounting programs, and personal finance programs, for the Macintosh.  By my count about 70 in all.  That's too many to list here.  I can send a complete list to anyone who wants it.  (Send your request to: randy@macattorney.com)  What I've listed here are just a few of the most popular general accounting programs among attorneys.
