One Year of Being 100% Virtual

June 11, 2021, I sat in the Florida Justice Association President’s Luncheon and learned that our landlords would only renew us if we agreed to sign a 10-year lease. We were already very much working from home, and our office was a glorified mailbox. That week I also finally read Traction (which I HIGHLY recommend for any business owner) and we were clearer than ever about what we do, and how we do it. It was time to go virtual. 

Plata Schott Law quietly made the transition last summer to 100% virtual (and we legally changed our name). We didn’t make a big announcement because we were worried people would hear that we closed our physical space and hear that we closed. I’ve written about the transition here

One year on, I can tell you it’s been mostly a great decision. It is very hard to manage people from afar… but we have become better managers in the face of the challenge.  We have served more than 230 people in the last 12 months and collected millions for our injured clients. Our staff have incredible quality of life and while I miss seeing everyone on a daily basis, I know that they are able to maximize their family time and we are able to reward their work with bonuses as we are saving the overhead of physical space. 

Business is great and we are very lucky to be able to serve Floridians and their families who are injured or arrested. We’ve made it easier than ever for you to get the legal help you need by using technology to come to you and saving you the time and cost of traveling to us. If you need legal help in Florida, you can call me at 904-619-5244 anytime.

ready to make it Rain{ka}?

I'm an award-winning, expert attorney in Jacksonville, Florida. I represent professional women and their families who are injured or arrested in Florida. I love my job and am proud to have a career, but when I became a mother, I learned that working moms are uniquely tasked with having to achieve "balance." (whatever that is.) What I really wanted was freedom - freedom to practice law in a way that works for me and my family. Through the support and advice of other working moms, I have found success by developing a personal brand that allows me to create my own clients and practice law in a way that gives me freedom. Now it's my turn to help other lawyer moms learn how to do the same and make it Rain(ka).
