How COVID-19 Started Virtual Law Firms

Court via video may have started with the coronavirus pandemic, but Dallas trial lawyer Rogge Dunn doesn’t expect it to end when the pandemic subsides.

He predicted litigators will continue to use Zoom for hearings, conferences and possibly trials once the COVID-19 pandemic ends. So he invested $17,500 in a “Zoom Room” at his firm with top-of-the-line equipment, where technical difficulties and distracting backgrounds are no concern.

The Importance of Making a Good First Impression

“You never get a second chance to make a good first impression,” Dunn said.

Dunn, founder of the 10-lawyer Rogge Dunn Group, is confident his firm’s lawyers will use the studio, which was completed in October, even after the pandemic, for convenience and economic reasons.

“I have clients all over the country. Even before COVID, did I really need to fly across the country?” he said. He said that absent in-person meetings, using quality audio and video to meet someone virtually is a “big plus.”

While Zoom fatigue may be real, he said that’s not an issue in the studio, since it just provides a better experience for a virtual hearing or conference. When Dunn decided to upgrade the video conferencing center, he consulted with people working in radio and television to determine what to buy.

About the Zoom Room Studio

The equipment for the studio includes sound baffling, high-quality radio broadcast microphones, a sound mixer, three video screens, a green screen and remote-controlled cameras, he said, along with portable microphone clips. In addition to virtual conferences, court hearings and trials, the firm’s lawyers can also record podcasts from the studio.

The studio has three computers to accommodate a lawyer and two witnesses, or a lawyer, a client representative and a witness, he said.

Building a fully equipped in-office studio may not be top of mind for leaders of some other Texas litigation boutiques. But they want the right equipment so that lawyers can avoid the hassle and embarrassment of technical difficulties during a hearing.

“Every edge counts. I’ve been a big believer since I’ve been practicing law that you can’t put a price tag on professionalism,” he said.
