Virtual Law Firm - Can It Be Done? | JurisPage. I live and work 5 minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I can count on one hand the times I have actually been in the water in the past several months. We just don't appreciate what is in front of us sometimes. However, that said, modern lawyering is more a function of where the lawyer is than where he sits. Armed with a tablet or notebook, a bluetooth headset, a smartwatch, and a smartphone, most of what lawyers do can be done anywhere. And, that includes sitting in the sand on the beach. However, do we want to? I don't think so. I like staying in touch while traveling, and, in a pinch, getting something done. However, I am most productive in my office, where I have printers and scanners and coffee machines and TV and music and chairs and air conditioning. While mobile, I can stay in touch; but, nothing substitutes for the conference room and a quiet environment, free from distractions or nosy neighbors. So, the answer to the question is that it can be done; but, you don't really want to. Why not have the freedom to do both? A small office is not that big of an expense. What you can do without is a human assistant, if you don't mind taking calls, making calls, making coffee, and pushing a broom or vacuum cleaner. Great peace can come from taking a break and performing a mundane task. Try it. You'll like it.
