It's been 6 weeks since I closed my office and had our staff work from home. That's 60,480 minutes since March 17, but who's counting?
I and the firm have been incredibly busy.
We unmanned our physical office in downtown St. Louis, and have all of our staff working from home. We have access to all our client documents and have scanners, computers, and everything we need in our home offices.
I filed a brief and argued to the Missouri Supreme Court, started an Ask a Lawyer Facebook show, and have been working to manage my firm virtually. Best of all, I get to hang with the family more.
I think this quarantine is going to change how lawyers do business in the future - less of a need for court appearances and face-to-face meetings. It's going to change how we do a lot of things.
