Business hasn’t slowed down during the COVID-19 pandemic, which tore many couples apart, according to family law attorneys Stacy D. Phillips, who practices in Los Angeles, and Bonnie E. Rabin, who practices in New York. However, the COVID-19 crisis has made it easier to work together.
The two lawyers, who have domestic and international clients, have jointly represented family law clients for some time. But they say it’s much simpler now, thanks to virtual depositions and court hearings.
Clients like it, too, according to Phillips and Rabin, who are featured in this month’s Asked and Answered podcast, which is looking at how the practice of law has changed over the years.
