Well, it probably isn't what you are thinking. It is not a law practice run by robots or anything. Actually, a virtual law practice simply means that the law firm can perform all of its legal duties to their client over the internet, or put another way
A virtual law practice discards the traditional brick and mortar law office in exchange for an efficient, cost savings, technology driven model to serve the needs of clients.
Attorneys in a virtual law practice provide all of the same great services as a traditional law firm, however they aren't tethered to a single location. Because of this fact, virtual law offices can be more flexible, and allows clients a more convenient access to their attorney. Much, if not all, of the work can be done over the internet by leveraging various technologies. Moreover, unlike document preparation sites like Legal Zoom and Rocket Lawyer, attorneys are able to provide legal advice and create documents specifically tailored to each client.
