Flexible Office Space for Attorneys - The Verdict is In

It’s hard to drive through a street in Downtown Somerville without seeing a sign for an attorney’s office. With its proximity to the Somerset County courthouse, NJ Transit, and a vibrant downtown, it’s no surprise that Somerville has become a hub for the legal community. Finding the right size office space downtown, however, may be overwhelming, especially during these uncertain times.

Many offices were only partially occupied during 2020 and the same continues into 2021. Yet attorneys continued their hard work and many are now working in a hybrid mode (home + office). This has left many to wonder if the expense and commitment to traditional office space is needed and what other options may exist.

In Downtown Somerville, Office Evolution is a shared office space facility that provides this flexibility and has been home to many legal practices since opening in 2014. This includes different types of attorneys at different stages of their career. Some attorneys run a solo practice on their own, others run a small practice with a team, and others are part of larger firms with several office locations.

In today’s environment, flexibility is so important. Imagine being able to upsize and downsize your space as your practice evolves or goes through seasonal fluctuations. Additional staff or team members can have a place to work without worrying about space limitations or committing to long-term leases. Or imagine having access to multiple conference rooms down the hall to hold client meetings, depositions, closings, etc. – but only paying for it when you use it.

The private offices at Office Evolution are a cost-effective way for many attorneys to establish their practice; especially since bundled amenities such as furniture, telephone, internet, phone answering, kitchen & front office presence are all included.

Another popular option is a coworking membership which provides access to a common coworking area to be productive or have a place to go between court appearances. Conference rooms are also available to reserve by the hour or by the day depending on needs. Other attorneys opt to only use the business address mail plan to establish a Somerville address and broaden their geographical presence to attract local clientele.

Office Evolution Somerville also has larger practices renting out a group of private offices that use the location as a satellite office for their attorneys that live in the area or have frequent legal hearings at the Somerset County Courthouse. This makes it more efficient for the attorney, which is likely to generate higher productivity and less time commuting time. Other practices just utilize the conference room for off-site meetings.

“Even though Lyons & Associates already has significant office space in town, we often turn to Office Evolution for off-site leadership team meetings and other important gatherings. The space is well appointed and the staff is incredibly accommodating.” – Theresa Lyons

So whether just starting out, growing a practice, downsizing (or right-sizing) office space, Office Evolution can be a great option with the flexibility and professionalism that it provides. With all the advantages that a shared workspace can offer, the verdict is in that Office Evolution Somerville is a cost-effective and flexible solution for attorneys, regardless of practice or size.
