I cannot speak for the rest of you, but over the last several months, I have had the feeling that I understand what house arrest must feel like. We have sheltered in place in the San Francisco–Oakland Bay area and watched the situation go from bad to worse. These days, excitement constitutes a trip to Costco (anything to get out of the house for a few minutes). This experience has put a whole new spin on working as a road warrior. I say that because I have always defined a road warrior as someone who works outside of his or her office a reasonable part of the time. By that definition, the effect of the COVID-19 lockdown has turned almost all practicing attorneys into road warriors.
