Read the attached article posted today on Lawyerist.com about how the number of solo practitioners is climbing, and how they are connected to two American cultural traditions:  punk and DIY. 

The author observes that “[w]hile law schools continue to churn out new lawyers ill-equipped to qualify for the few ‘mainstream’ jobs available, a new army of solos is prowling the streets, strip malls, and internet browsers, looking to survive. Like the punk/indie bands, they are (mostly) young, educated, thwarted by the established systems (law firms, government) that seemed to offer them some chance at conventional success. But they are free to pursue their own paths.”
