When I decided to open my law practice a few years ago, I did so for many reasons, one of the most important being the ability to work remotely. I based my decision on my perception of traditional law practice’s inflexibility and how things were always done. The pandemic changed all of that. Procedures and practices that were often required to be in-person are now remote. Thanks to technology and the priority of safety over convention, it is no longer unheard of to conduct virtual meetings, consultations, depositions, trials, and even bar exams from home. While this transition to remote practice has not been without its share of challenges, it has revealed new possibilities for the practice of law.
