Keep or consolidate several Google+ accounts for my business?

Consolidate Google+ accounts or not?
We have a main office with four remote/satellite locations. Our satellite locations have little to no reviews whereas our head office could use more reviews.

Should we try to increase the remote locations reviews or shut down those pages and consolidate more reviews on our main G+ account?

It's a law office and we offer legal advice in every location.

What would you do?

 

Thank you.

The remote locations will help you rank for searches near those locations. All else being equal, Google will return the nearest location to the searcher. 

 

If they are offices that are simply used as meeting locations but don't have your own employees staffing them on a regular basis, and if it is unlikely the location is strongly associated with your business in your customers minds, I'd be inclined to shutter them. A hardly used office with hardly generate reviews, and you'll want to focus your efforts on making one listing look great.
