The way that the American workforce uses their office space has changed dramatically over the past few years. This is also true for attorneys.

Easy access to inexpensive and powerful technology has made it possible for all businesses, including lawyers, to work from a smaller office footprint, or simply do away with a brick & mortar office altogether.

But just because you have the ability to run a law practice from your dining room table, is that necessarily the best decision for the success of your firm?

Here are a few “Tweetable” stats, straight from the experts, that will help you better understand today’s changing landscape of shared office space:
