For Nicolette Vilmos, continuing to work remotely while the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread has become a juggling act.
"I've been carrying the mental load of working full time while trying to become a homeschool teacher and making lesson plans and making sure my kids don't kill each other or go stir-crazy," said Vilmos, a business litigation attorney and a mother of four boys ages 6, 8, 9, and 13 in Central Florida. Both she and her husband are working from home while taking social distancing precautions.

Vilmos has found herself attending legal hearings by telephone while chaos swirls around her.
