Law firms have successfully pivoted to using Zoom to have their attorneys work remotely. For the past 20 years law firms have been sprouting up that are completely virtual. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, many attorneys are looking to make the move to a virtual law firm.
Business as we know it has changed dramatically and over the next few years there will be more flexible working opportunities because it will enable law firms to substantially reduce their operating expenses.
Working remotely gives us more control over our time. Giving lawyers more flexibility in choosing when and where they work can increase gender equality.

Remote work can help parents better balance their work and family responsibilities. Working from home also helps couples share family responsibilities more equally now than they did before the pandemic.

“I worked with a woman who worked at aTop AM100 Law firm who needed to pivot to a remote based position. Her son needed more home schooling and she simply had to be home during this critical time in her child’s life. She not only has more control over her life working remotely but has significantly increased her earnings.”
Take advantage of this time to see how you can make the transition to a virtual law firm. You’ll have more time to take care of the important things in your life that working in a traditional law firm simply can't offer.
