As lawyers enter what is likely their sixth month of remote work, they may feel more pressure than ever before. Homes feel smaller, stressors feel more significant. Further, some lawyers have been deprived of their regular ways of developing business, from in-person dinners with clients to attending conferences. The daily news events and potential harm to the economy can also create stress.
Lawyers may also face financial and other pressures, given that clients may be slow to pay if their businesses have been impacted by the ongoing closures. Many firms have had to take some austerity measures in light of the quarantine and disruption to income. Lawyers who have financial obligations may find themselves without the resources to obtain new work or to receive payment for completed work.
