What is a virtual office’s serving address – concerns about receiving service for your clients if you are in a different state? 
 
Is Schoenefeld a retroactive or proactive decision?
 
How would Schoenefeld be enforced? Would this be a grievance by one lawyer against another lawyer to bring up disciplinary proceedings? How likely is that to happen?
 
Are there malpractice issues and who would bring forth the malpractice action?
 
How likely is it that a client would sue an attorney for being licensed in one state and having an office in another state?

Why It’s Time to Change?  A Review of Judiciary Law § 470
Schoenefeld v. New York | Overview and Discussion

            Speaker: Ekaterina Schoenefeld, Esq., Schoenefeld Law Firm LLC, Plaintiff   
            Speaker: Ronald B. McGuire, Esq., author of amicus brief

In Schoenefeld v. State of New York, 25 N.Y. 3d 22, 26 (2015), the Court of Appeals held that Judiciary Law § 470 requires attorneys who do not reside in New York "to maintain a physical law office within the State."  Is Schoenefeld a retroactive or proactive decision? New York has no office requirement for attorneys who reside within the State. Is the requirement unconstitutional? What is the scope of the rule? What were the policy considerations behind the rule? Is it relevant today?                                       
 
Practicing Law in the 21st Century: Ethically and Practically Virtual 
       

            Speaker: Philip Touitou, Esq., Partner, Hinshaw, Culbertson LLP 
            Speaker: Stephen Furnari, Furnari Scher LLP & Founder, Law Firm Suites 
Whether or not Judiciary Law § 470 is held to be unconstitutional, there are ethical and practical implications to having a virtual law practice in New York. What are the policy considerations in allowing (or not) a virtual law practice? How does a practitioner dispense those considerations and honor their ethical obligations?  What address can be used on the letterhead, website, or business card? What is a virtual office’s serving address? Are there concerns about receiving service for your clients if you are in a different state? Would a grievance come from a client or by a lawyer against another lawyer? Are there malpractice issues? How likely is it that a client would sue an attorney for being licensed in one state and having an office in another state? How would violations of Schoenefeld be enforced?  What would the likely ‘punishment’ be? To whom can you market – NY residents? Clients in the state where you sit who have a NY matter?
