appellate attorney. You mostly only talk to the original trial lawyer, write a solo brief while being left alone, and then several months to a year+ later have a brief oral argument. Client interaction not necessary nor do you have to speak to OC much

Doc review. Contract attorney/ counsel on call.

They're not completely secluded but pretty close.

Appellate lawyers have to actually go to court—unless you’re just writing briefs. If you want zero interaction, doc review seems to be your option. Though I think I should rather slit my wrists than do that. But I’m an extrovert. It takes all kinds of people to make a world, though, right?

There’s 2-5 GlassDoor positions right now for attorneys to accept fully remote, generally long-term but temporary roles handling such projects as a preparing a massive federal filing in certain courts (one in N Dist GA, 1 in CA; different jobs); several for fully remote document review but the review is on computer DBs specific to the companies plus requires training on certain other programs — sounds like a PITA; and a few corporate transactional positions under HIGH responsibility/pressure.

I recently transitioned into a fully remote claims handling role. I mostly handle legal malpractice claims from the insurance side. I evaluate the claim for coverage and then manage the defense. I have to talk on the phone but not that much, and I never leave my house. I love it. My legal practice largely involved professional liability and coverage, which fits perfectly with what I’m doing now.
