I really enjoy the efficiency of reading my RSS feeds from my Treo during down time. Could you consider publishing full feeds because they work better on little screens than loading your full site

Ironically, I started my practice out of my house, but then opened an office. I agree that the purpose of the office is primarily for meeting clients and contacts. It also have to have a physical office in building a team. My office is just 1.5 miles from home. No traffic, and hardly any commute. I think you can have the best of both worlds.

I just started a blog called "The Virtual Lawyer" two weeks ago. Being a virtual lawyer allows you the freedom to practice law any time, any where. It also gives you the freedom to have a physical office if that helps your practice.

I'm fascinated with the virtual office concept. I'm an attorney in Dublin, Ireland, not Dublin Texas although I have a nice home near San Antonio.

I have an office building which houses my practice. At one stage I had a total of 26 of a staff. We were located over three floors. Consultation rooms on the ground floor.

Now, some 25 years later I have reduced the staff due to technology etc. We are now 7 working over the same space. What a waste. I work mostly from home and now I find that really all we need of the office is the consulting room/s.

The question now is should I sell the building and pay off some loans etc. I could rent a meeting room in a serviced office environment using that address as my office. The clients will be unaware that we work elsewhere.

Should I go this route? Well, to do so would be revolutionary over here. The traditional 'solicitors office' (solicitor=attorney) is the standard.

Keep up the good work and any help/advice you can give would be appreciated.
