This article states,"Starting next month, lawyers will no longer need bricks-and-mortar offices to practice in New Jersey.

New Jersey Women Lawyers Association president Galit Kierkut said the revised rule is 'of benefit to solo attorneys, many of whom are women working part-time while they undertake child care responsibilities, including many of our members.'

It will also help women who are 'onboarding' — trying to resume working after a period of child rearing, who 'often have a tough time obtaining jobs, especially in this economy' and start a part-time practice, says Kierkut, of Sills Cummis & Gross in Newark."
