The COVID-19 pandemic has turned every profession upside down, including the law. People are in crisis, and they don’t know what they qualify for or what forms to file. After all, trying to keep up with the government’s many changes is a daunting endeavor.

So what is it like right now being a lawyer in a pandemic?

I had the pleasure of sitting down with kid entrepreneur Bud Leggett, founder of Bud’s Outfitters, to answer that question. Bud is the son of Mandy Leggett, president of the Southern Lancaster County Chamber of Commerce.

He wanted to know:

  • Is being a lawyer different in the red phase versus the green phase?
  • How do you go to court virtually?
  • Why do you like being a lawyer in Lancaster?
  • And more!
