Kevin O’Keefe Addressed the State Bar of Texas (SBOT) Annual Meeting

Lexblog founder/CEO and good friend Kevin O’Keefe spoke on Thursday, June 10 in Fort Worth at the SBOT Annual Meeting about his favorite topic – “You Online Presence: Getting it Right, Ethically, with Twitter and Other Social Media.” Also my friend and SBOT web manager John Sirman spoke, and you can read more on Kevin’s blog “Real Lawyers Have Blogs.” Kevin has been an outstanding Social Media leader and I greatly appreciate his enthasiam and sage advice.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
