Spencer Fane attorney Jessica Hill was recently featured in a Q&A article in the Springfield Business Journal, discussing her role in the firm’s Litigation practice group and how the pandemic has impacted legislation.
When asked why she decided to move to the firm, Jessica noted that “Spencer Fane was attractive to me for a lot of reasons. They have a national presence and they’re a growing law firm…when this opportunity presented itself, I really saw it as something that would be beneficial to me as an attorney, but also beneficial to my clients because they have a very broad scope of services (and) practice areas.”
Jessica highlighted the changes COVID-19 has brought upon the legal industry, including the use of technology as numerous depositions, mediations, and court hearings were conducted via Zoom or Webex.
“I don’t think that the technology aspect is ever going to fully go away. We’ll certainly be going back to court more frequently, but in situations where you might have witnesses who are far away or even attorneys who are farther away, I think that we’ll continue to incorporate some of what we’ve learned on the technology side,” Jessica explained.
