The Key for Any Start-Up Solo

From Chicago Lawyer...

When civil rights attorney Jon Loevy ­decided to go on his own after less than two years at Sidley Austin, he opened up shop without an office, let alone a legal pad.

In 1997 it was just Loevy, with a computer and a phone, he said, working out of his garden apartment in Lakeview.

“My business model was to keep my overhead very, very low. That way, if I made a little money I could pay the rent,” Loevy said.
