When the COVID-19 pandemic forced courtrooms across the country to shut their doors and halt trials, attorneys and judges had to adjust quickly. What happened next was truly amazing—the legal industry began moving forward with cases over online platforms.
Then, in May 2020, Amy M. Stewart, a founding partner with the Stewart Law Group, made history when she became one of the first trial attorneys to present a case to a jury over Zoom. Following the experience, she put together a team of outstanding attorneys: M.C. Sungaila, Winter Wheeler and Cheralyn Stevenson, to create the Virtual Proceedings Playbook, a resource for lawyers, mediators and judges to use when conducting virtual proceedings.
