What I advocate really is the reduction of overhead. That is true. I prefer collaboration with others instead of an employer / employee relationship. However, I tell people all of the time that they should do that which best complies with their needs. I agree that there are some more retail areas of law, such as real estate transaction work, that requires staff. I do think it is very easy for attorneys to justify to themselves why they need a higher overhead, but it has always sounded to me like you have reach a good balance that works well for you. And, you own your office, which is a generally good investment. As for me, I did not throw my babies out with the bath water, and now I suffer from mal-tuition. Texas public universities just went through another double digit increase in costs. Poor me. Hope you are better.
