As an attorney who primarily works with clients over the phone or via video conferencing, I have found that working remotely has a number of benefits.

I can help more clients

First, working remotely allows me to provide legal services to clients who may not be able to come into my office in person. I am in Port Hueneme, which is an awesome beach city near Ventura. But my clients are all the way up to Santa Barbara, Lompoc, Santa Maria, and as far south as Tehachapi and the San Fernando Valley. Sometimes my clients have mobility issues that make it difficult for them to travel. By offering remote services, I am able to make legal assistance more accessible to a wider range of people.

Flexibility

Another benefit of working remotely is that it allows me to be more flexible with my schedule. Rather than being tied to a specific office location, I can take calls and hold meetings with clients at times that are convenient for them. This can be particularly helpful for clients who have busy schedules or who are unable to take time off work to come into the office.

Less Overhead

Working remotely also allows me to reduce my overhead costs. I don’t need to rent or maintain a physical office space, which can save me a significant amount of money. This savings can be passed on to my clients, making my services more affordable.

Efficiency

In addition, working remotely allows me to work more efficiently. I can use technology to streamline my processes and reduce the amount of time I spend on administrative tasks. For example, I can use electronic signing tools to have documents signed remotely, rather than having to print and mail them to clients.

Environment

Finally, working remotely allows me to be more environmentally friendly. By not having to travel to an office every day, I am able to reduce my carbon footprint. This is not only good for the environment, but it also allows me to do my part to address climate change.

The real reason!
