ABA Opinion on Lawyers Practicing Remotely

Last week, the American Bar Association issued its Formal Opinion No. 495 on Lawyers Working Remotely, which endorses the position that attorneys can remotely practice law in a jurisdiction in which they are licensed, while they are located in a different jurisdiction. Attorneys should not however publicly represent that they have an office where they are located while they practice remotely. Jurisdictional limitations should be listed on a firm's web site, and an address should not be given in the location where the attorney is not licensed.
