Three Texas attorneys who lost their offices in a Feb. 2, 2009, fire that swept through a row of historic buildings located behind the Smith County Courthouse have spent the past year rebuilding their practices. Although the buildings can no longer be used for offices, the county plans eventually to build a criminal justice center on the property.

"We had no insurance," says Kyle Morrison, now a Tyler, Texas, solo. He lost almost everything in the offices he shared with his former partner.
