Important Announcements Related to the Coronavirus

Dear Clients and Colleagues,

We hope this finds you safe and well during this unprecedented time. This is an update regarding changes that our office is implementing given the current COVID-19 crisis.

Given the extraordinary steps taken by the government and the recent recommendations from the CDC regarding minimizing the impact of COVID-19, our office is transitioning to remote work for the foreseeable future to protect the health of our employees, clients, and colleagues. Our office hours will remain the same. Be assured, we will continue to attend to our obligations to our clients and colleagues. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we navigate this uncharted territory.

We will remain available by e-mail, phone, video-conferencing, and conference calls. We are using Zoom so that we will be available for video conferencing. Our telephone lines will be forwarded to our personal phones. As an accommodation, during this time, we would appreciate all communications being sent via email as opposed to regular mail. We are monitoring the situation in the courts in which we practice and will advise clients of changes individually as necessary.

We will continue to work diligently for our clients and encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you.
