Stephanie Kimbro, Esq.

Glad to see another attorney using technology to benefit the legal profession.

I have run the first completely virtual law office in North Carolina for the past two years now with great success. The SaaS application that my virtual law office uses was created by Virtual Law Office Technology (vlotech.com) and takes the concept of a virtual law office to a completely different level.

My clients appreciate the convenience and so far not meeting face-to-face has not been a problem. I provide the same legal services online as I would in person, perhaps even better because I have the opportunity to pause, think and type and delete before communicating with a client. Each client has his or her own homepage where they are updated regularly on their cases, and they can pay online, among other online functions that increase efficiency and convenience.

I think this model would also work well in a larger 15-30 person firm and could be combined with a physical law office to really use the best of both worlds.

There will always be clients and attorneys who want to meet face-to-face but there are others who are actually more comfortable handling transactions online (like they are with their online banking and investing). I'm excited to see what this software concept and the virtual law office trend will add to the legal profession.
