As news of the coronavirus (COVID-19) global health crisis continues to evolve, we at Brick, Jones, McBrien and Hickey, LLP want to share with you our plans for keeping our clients, employees and community secure. We understand that during this uncertain time, our clients’ legal needs will not go away.
At this time, our physical office in Newton will be closed through March 27, 2020. However, our office remains open for business as our attorneys and staff are fully operational remotely. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we acclimate to a new way of doing business.
In an effort to continue to address our clients’ needs, and to be cognizant of the recommendations of health experts, we will, whenever possible, encourage our clients to meet and consult with us virtually. Our firm infrastructure and procedures allow our lawyers and staff to work remotely while still providing legal guidance and assistance of the highest quality.
For now, the Massachusetts Probate and Family Court remains open but has restricted in-person appearances of all kinds. Only emergencies are being heard through telephonic appearances. Matters of a non-emergent matter are being rescheduled to a date after April 7, 2020. We will be in touch with individual clients to discuss how these restrictions may impact your matter.
We remain committed to servicing our clients while following recommendations from the World Health Organization, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local authorities. We value the safety and wellbeing of our clients and employees above all else.
Please do not hesitate to contact our office via phone or email should you have any questions.
