any solo and small firm attorneys are already working on alternative fee structures, such as a flat fee model, which the large firms just don't do because they are so used to the hourly billing model.

I used to work in large law firms and am now in private practice where I work with my business clients on a flat fee basis - either project specific flat fee arrangements, or a monthly flat fee program. For me, it's more about developing the relationship with my client than keeping track of hours. Also, I would rather my client call or e-mail me anytime instead of worrying about racking up another hour. This has worked well with my clients and they really like the monthly flat fee program.

Take a look at The Space Between Center to see other attorneys that have implemented the flat fee model.
