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.


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.


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.


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!

In addition to the many practical benefits of working remotely, there is also the added bonus of not having to worry about getting dressed up every day. As an attorney, I used to feel like I had to wear a suit and tie to the office every day, even if I didn’t have any in-person meetings scheduled. Now, I can roll out of bed and start working in my pajamas if I want to (although I usually don’t, just to be on the safe side).

This may seem like a small thing, but it can make a big difference in terms of my overall happiness and well-being. Not having to worry about what to wear every morning allows me to start my day in a more relaxed and stress-free way. Plus, it saves me time and effort, which I can then use to focus on more important things, like providing the best possible legal services to my clients.

Of course, there are still times when I need to look presentable for video calls with clients. But even in those cases, I can just throw on a nice shirt and some pants and be ready to go in a matter of minutes. This is a far cry from the days when I had to spend time each morning carefully selecting and coordinating my outfit.


In short, working remotely has allowed me to enjoy the freedom and convenience of not having to worry about dressing up every day. It may not be the most important reason why I like working remotely, but it’s definitely a nice bonus.

Overall, I have found that working remotely has many benefits. It allows me to provide legal services to a wider range of clients, be more flexible with my schedule, reduce my overhead costs, work more efficiently, and be more environmentally friendly.
