Great article and blog. I've been working as an IT staff member for BigLaw for almost 20 years now and I've been advocating and predicting that BigLaw needs to start embracing the Third Wave as VLP has. Luckily I have worked from home for 4 years while still performing my project management duties and I couldn't be happier.

Of course, the "old timers" will have to be pulled into this new environment kicking and screaming - that is why there will probably be a "blended environment" for many firms: gradual movement of all workers to home offices, minimization of real estate and other overhead needs, mandatory embrace of new technology by workers.

Keep up the good work evangelizing about the Third Wave!

Hi Chuck,

Great post! VLP is at the vanguard of VLO's for California, and, as a California lawyer who is wanting to start a VLO, I am inspired that this these super high profile Silicon Valley lawyers have made the case for VLO legitimacy.

Unfortunately, one of the founders of VLP, Craig Johnson, died suddenly on October 5, 2009, of a stroke, after returning from his honeymoon with his new bride -- who is also another co-founder of VLP. We can only hope that they continue on with their vision of the future of law in his honor.
