With all the technological advances available, it shouldn’t be a surprise that law firms are changing the way they operate their legal practices. More solo practitioners and small law firms now choose to work in the cloud. Although most law firms are still brick-and-mortar service professionals, virtual lawyering is on the rise, and clients are reaping the benefits of this new alternative to traditional law practices.
