Solo Practice

An interesting (if not entirely objective) article on some of the benefits of solo practice, featuring some pop psychology of the legal profession. I'm not so sold on the analysis of lawyers as a group, but I think there's merit to the article, especially the anecdote of the ethnic attorney.

My question, as someone who has a network of people always wanting legal help (as with the example above) is whether those people are willing and able to pay for legal help. My solo work has always had a built-in cushion wherein some of what I'm doing is under a contract that pays me fairly regularly. Going completely solo and relying on networking and contacts seems dangerous from a business perspective.
