Like you, we have been closely following the spread of COVID-19. The health and safety of our clients and our staff is our primary priority.
We want to share details about what we are doing to take precautions while doing our best to make sure that your case is not disrupted as a result of this pandemic.
- We will be limiting client contact through the end of the month, March 31, 2020. If you have an in person meeting, deposition, mediation, arbitration, court hearing or trial scheduled during this time period, please contact your attorney before appearing. Many meetings and hearings can be handled telephonically or by video-conference; and when possible arrangements will be made for this to occur.
- Where it is determined that an in person meeting, deposition, mediation, arbitration, court hearing or trial is necessary, please be sure to notify your attorney if you are feeling ill, have a fever or other flu-like symptoms, have serious health concerns, have recently traveled, or have been in contact with a person who has recently traveled.
- Attorneys and staff will be working remotely, as necessary. Whether or not attorneys and staff are regularly in the office, voicemail and email will continue to be checked on a regular basis.
Please also be aware that while we will try to prevent this where possible, some court hearings, depositions, mediations, arbitrations and/or trials may need to be postponed during this time. The courts are providing updated guidelines on attendance at civil case hearings, which we are reviewing as they become available.
We are aware that schools are closing and that you may need to provide care to your child(ren), grandchild(ren), etc. If you become unavailable for a meeting, deposition, or other hearing due to a childcare concern, please notify your attorney immediately.
We will continue to monitor this evolving situation and its potential impact for your case. Updated information will be provided, as necessary. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
