This article, In iron lung, lawyer forged iron will (Dallas Morning News 1/29/07) features
Paul Alexander, a remarkable solo who practices law, despite having been paralyzed from the neck down since childhood as a result of polio and breathing with assistance from an iron lung.  But how does Alexander’s condition affect his clients?  Not much, from what I could tell from the article – and in fact, he’s earned their respect:

One of his clients is Karen Pitts of Denton, who often refers him to friends and neighbors in need of an attorney.  “He really is really a wonderful individual,” Ms. Pitts said. “He’s overcome a lot. I really respect Paul in many ways. He is a more capable attorney than the ones walking.”
