JVW is open and continuing to advance our clients’ rights. We recognize that now, more than ever, individuals, companies and municipalities need our help. We have rapidly transitioned our office to work under the new “social distancing” norm. Whatever your legal needs, we are here for you. Our firm was already ahead of the technology curve, and in a short few day we completed the transition to work remotely with our clients and the courts. Courts remain available for processing cases by using available technology. Most mediations and hearings are being done telephonically, and cases continue to move through the system.
YOUR SAFETY COMES FIRST
Client safety comes first. JVW is set up to work remotely with all clients to maintain social distancing. We can work with you by video conference, email and telephone. We can help you set up technology to communicate with us, and we encourage you to do so.
Our normal hours will not change, and our doors will remain open for business. However, many of our attorneys will be working remotely, and will rely more heavily on telephone and video conferencing to stay in contact with you. Wherever possible, we are practicing safe social distancing to do our part in curbing the spread of COVID-19. As always, we will be available to address any of your legal concerns.
WE WILL WORK TO OVERCOME DELAYS
In the coming months we anticipate we will experience some delays with some courts and judges as they decide how to deal with COVID-19. We intend to continue to advocate for prompt resolution of our client’s matters, and we will do our best to encourage judges to keep your case moving forward. If you have any concerns about how the spread of COVID-19 may affect your case, we encourage you to contact us. If you need special accommodations because you are a high risk individual, please let us know and we will assure your concerns are addressed.
We thank you for your patience and cooperation while our nation weathers this change in circumstances. We are all in this together, and we hope that by taking these proactive steps we can continue to operate and serve the community by empowering our clients with the law.
