Starting as second year (transactional) lateral soon at a v30.

Assuming that my firm is ok with it, how logistically feasible is it for me to live in the Seattle area and commute once a week to my firm’s SF (or Silicon Valley) office? I would go early and come back in the same day. Thinking about doing this because we have a strong preference to live in Seattle to be closer to family and ability to buy a bigger house. Also no state income tax!
