The true solo practitioner is a myth. Lawyers who practice without the help of others live in a make-believe land with Paul Bunyan and chupacabras. They don’t exist, and that’s because it takes a team of a dozen (likely, several dozen) to practice law well.

While a solo’s “staff” may not be on the payroll — making it less visible to those outside the “firm” — recognizing the role of crucial team members is vital to a solo’s long-term success. Above and beyond the obvious need of help answering phones, typing and other office chores, a solo requires a crack virtual staff he or she can depend upon.
