Virtual Law Partners

vlp.pngLast year in May Steve Matthews mooted the idea of a virtual law firm and sparked interesting comments, a couple from folks who were in such practices. Now big hitter Craig Johnson has teamed up with some others to make a big splash with their Virtual Law Partners, based in San Francisco. From the bouncy (but effective) website, it seems that they’re aiming at individuals, families and perhaps small businesses. has a piece on the startup, which will fill you in on the fees, the predictions, etc. — but not on who else is doing the virtual practice thing. For that you’ll have to go to Slaw, and the comments on Steve’s post.
