When Los Angeles litigator–and last year’s American Bar Association Solo Practitioner of the Year–Dana B. Taschner says that he works alone, he means it. He has no in-house staff. Operating out of a Century City, Calif., office suite that provides reception, copier and fax services, the plaintiffs’ and small business lawyer relies on contract lawyers and paralegals for backup. Even his word processing is performed by outside help.

“I have it done by cyber-secretaries,” he says. He picks up the phone and dictates his work to an online service, which e-mails him his work product within a few hours. “I have a full secretarial staff available to me 24 hours a day, seven days a week without the…cost of health insurance…or other benefits,” he says.
