You might want to look at www.flexjobs.com. They list remote positions for attorneys.

Have you thought about volunteering for a non-profit that needs website help? That way, you would gain some experience and you could show your work to potential employers. I would also promote your work with your network. Tell as many people you know that you are looking for work in this field - you never know if this could lead to a position. Finally, have you thought about working as a contractor in the field? That may be another way to get your foot in the door.
