No, they don't accept it but are referring to clients that use it, or soon will:

Quote
Bitcoin is moving off the web and into our daily lives — you can pay for pretty much anything, from sushi to a fine cocktail, if you know where to shop. It’s even been the subject of an episode of popular TV show The Good Wife.  So just how long will it be until our clients start asking to pay in Bitcoin?

Author's conclusion (points for guessing gender here):
Quote
The thing that makes Bitcoin attractive to so many — its ability to be used free from government regulation or bank intervention — is the very thing that makes it a grey area when it comes to lawyers accepting it as a form of payment. Despite Texas lawyer Jay Cohen saying he’ll take Bitcoin as payment for legal services (criminal defence lawyer — but I’m not judging), I think we’re a long way off. For me, until I know I can buy a fabulous pair of shoes with Bitcoin, it’s no good to me anyway.
