Central Florida Attorneys Dedicated to Serving Your Legal Needs

Our clients and community are the foundation our firm is built on and we are committed to providing the best possible legal services to you throughout these difficult times.

We are currently maintaining normal office hours. However, we encourage you to consider conducting business with us by telephone conference or other technology, in lieu of face-to-face meetings.

We have robust technology in place that will allow all attorneys and paralegals to work remotely with seamless connections to our clients, and with the full capacity to get our work done at the levels you rely on from us.  This technology allows employees to be fully reachable and to access the firm systems.

In addition to being prepared to work remotely should the need arise, we have instituted some new policies for operating in the office during this period of heightened health risk. We have instituted a no handshake policy, are cleaning all conference rooms after every appointment and are offering teleconference and remote conference appointments. Additionally, we have a mobile signing station in our parking lot on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday to allow clients to sign estate planning or other documents from the safety of their vehicles.

Courts throughout the Country are issuing orders to adjust their schedule in response to the current COVID -19 health crisis.  We are monitoring those orders, as well as any court-specific orders/policies that might apply to cases we are handling for you.
