Are solo practitioners feeling isolated in their law practice?

A solo practitioner in Brazil was inquiring  online of other lawyers about being isolated in their law practice.   The responses from lawyers practicing on their own affirmed that solo lawyers can get segregated from other lawyers.   Solo practitioners and small law firms (ten attorneys and under) make up approximately 49 % of active U.S. lawyers.  While the American Bar Association has not broken down the number of actual solo practitioners versus small law firm practices, solo lawyers are so busy hustling for clients, performing legal duties and billing clients,  that it can be isolating.   Sarah Stock of Legal Back Office and Stock Legal in St. Louis, Missouri  agrees.  “When people start running their own firm, it can be overwhelming and lonely.”   https://molawyersmedia.com/2018/12/11/new-services-or-products-that-support-missouris-legal-community-jaimee-hall-sarah-stock/

 

Attorneys are practicing in the same office with other lawyers absent the creation of a "law firm" across the United States.  These lawyers are an association of independent attorneys.  See Model Rule below.
