If you’re dreaming of a solo practice, get busy making it happen!  That’s the crux of my latest Small Firm Business column entitled Make 2005 the Year You Start Your Firm.  (by the way, my last two pieces have been heavily edited.  Not sure whether I like the changes or not – so let me know what you think)

    The Greatest American Lawyer Goes Live!
    My family has decided to quit our cushy hourly law firm job in a very medium sized town and strike out on our own. We have a $70k line of credit at the bank on our house. We have some credit cards with some hefty credit available on them. We are betting the farm, literally. With tree kids ages 6, 4 and 2, we have decided it is more important to live life on our own terms, by our own sweat and principles rather than protect the roof over our head. Our small family is walking away from a $150k income [whhich is a lot where we live] for the feel of the breeze in my hair and a goal to change the way law is practiced.
    Welcome to the show! Don’t wish me luck. I’d rather have someone pick up the mail from the post-office for me in the morning, one of the many luxuries I leave behind [along with the work-out facility, firm Cadillac and end of the day scotches in the big boss' office] in my old life as a in-name-only partner at a firm run by one man [who I shall call "Big Boss"].
