More and more lawyers have wireless access in their offices and at home. Law offices increasingly have wireless “zones” in conference rooms, libraries and break rooms. At home, families often have more than one computer, all competing for wireless (WiFi) Internet access. Lawyers have discovered that the utility of working untethered.

Lawyers use wireless connections in coffeehouses, in densely populated high-rise buildings and also at home. All good? Certainly, if your mantra is “practice any time, any place.” For some, wireless equals more billables. Quality of life issues are a different matter. Lawyers are finding that having an “always on, always connected” approach to law practice has a downside. Although it’s good for business, it’s rough in the “pretending to have a life” category.
