When attorneys at Dickstein Shapiro want Starbucks coffee, they don’t have to schlep down the elevator and wander around in search of that double espresso. And they certainly don’t have to leave their office when a case is just not going well and they want the comfort of a chocolate-chip cookie by a warm fire.

Dickstein Shapiro is one of many firms in Washington, D.C., and throughout the country that are hiring architecture and design firms to put in more high-end amenities, such as fireside cafeterias that serve Starbucks coffee and lounge areas with soft seating, unique lighting and funky art. Other firms are taking out the heavy dark-wood furniture that law firms are known for and putting in lighter desks and chairs to update the look and feel of the firm.
