The pandemic has changed the way we do business- but what effect has it had on the legal system? What are the limits of online platforms like zoom when it comes to holding trials and other legal proceedings?

Orlando attorney Conti Moore, managing partner of Conti Moore Law, joins Intersection to discuss the changes that the 9th Judicial Circuit has made to keep working through the pandemic, and the impact of the last couple months on the way she practices law.
