Elite Lawyer Is Looking Ahead to a Healthy and Prosperous 2021

on in Uncategorized

The end of 2020 could not come soon enough for many people. COVID-19 changed our way of life this past year, and we all have had to adjust to a new normal. States across the country issued executive orders, including temporarily closing non-essential businesses in an effort to stop the spread of the virus. With so many out of work or taking a pay cut, an unprecedented number of people filed for unemployment. In addition, health and safety officials advised against big gatherings, which meant families spent more time at home than ever before. A rise in certain crimes resulted, including traffic violations such as speeding, as well as domestic violence and theft. Law firms are considered essential businesses, so they have continued to offer clients legal representation when they need it most, albeit virtually in some cases. 2021 is looking more positive with a vaccine starting to be administered. Elite Lawyer is committed to assisting our members in 2021 and beyond. 

Networking and Collaborating for a Better Future Together 

For those facing a legal issue, whether it be criminal charges, divorce, estate planning, personal injury, or family law issues, finding an attorney may seem like a daunting process. Many people may not even know where to start, and that is why the Elite Lawyer directory is such a benefit. Users can search for lawyers or law firms by state or practice area in a comprehensive listing of attorneys all over the United States. Only legal professionals who meet or exceed specific criteria receive the Elite Lawyer award, which sets them apart from their peers so consumers know they are looking at the cream of the crop. 

For attorneys who wish to network with colleagues on topics within the same practice area, the Elite Lawyer directory can be an invaluable resource. The online database makes it an easy search tool regardless of what state someone is in. Attorneys may be considered for the Elite Lawyer award either through a nomination by their peers or the Elite Lawyer Advisory Panel, or by client recommendation or feedback. The review process includes rating and evaluating attorneys based on: 

  • Education

  • Legal experience

  • Professional achievement

  • Reputation

  • Community involvement

  • Settlement and verdicts

  • Special licensing and certification 

  • Number of years in practice

  • Bar admissions

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, many law firms have utilized virtual teleconferencing apps to meet with clients instead of in person. In many cases, they are able to resolve certain legal matters that may not require going to court. With a COVID-19 vaccine already being administered throughout the country, some restrictions may be lifted. However, law firms may continue to use online meetings since it may be more convenient for their clients. If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that we are resilient, and if we work together, we can achieve great things.
