The working stay-at-home Mom.

The working stay-at-home Mom

Governor Wolf announced less than 24 hours ago that all non-life sustaining businesses must shut down immediately. Like many others, that means the physical location of our office must close. Fortunately, however, we have created a system called “Virtual LaMonaca Law” which allows our team to seamlessly continue all operations from anywhere. This system allows us to work remotely from the comfort of our own home. While this system is very beneficial to most, it does come with some drawbacks. Personally, one of the hardest challenges I face currently is working from home while also taking care of my 2 young children: a 2 and 3-year-old. I am not alone in this situation as I am sure there are parents across the world who understand these same challenges.  Maintaining client satisfaction, as well as maintaining a child’s needs, is a difficult task and one that I did not think I would find myself trying to navigate, however, given the tools that our firm provides for us as well as our ability to be ahead of the curve in terms of technology and seamless interaction with our clients has proven to lessen the burden. Having the ability to communicate with our clients via email, phone and/or video chat, work on pleadings and court documents from home and continue our day-to-day tasks is something that not all law firms can provide in this time of need.

At the end of the day, however, I take a moment to look around and am thankful I have been fortunate enough to land in this type of position. While I join everyone in the hope that our community will quickly recover from COVID-19 and normalcy will return to our lives, working from home was an unexpected blessing for me and one that would have been harder to navigate if not for the team at LaMonaca Law.

We are able to handle any family law issues without interference in the face of the mandated closure, and we welcome the chance to help anyone who needs us. Click or Call 610-892-3877
