COVID-19 Update: 2020-06-04
If you need immediate financial or emotional help relating to the pandemic, click here. If you are unable to find the specific information that you need, please call the office line. Our number one priority is your health and safety.
I hope you are all doing well and trying to get back to normal as much as possible. The courts are not opened until at least July 1, 2020, except for the emergency hearings and some pre-trials as determined by the court.
However, please note that all courts are accepting filings on a
regular basis (with the exception of housing court which is limited).
I would encourage anyone who has a case pending or is thinking of filing a case to reach out to us to determine what is best for you.
Our offices will open on June 15, 2020 but you must have an appointment to meet in person with any staff, and most meetings will be done by telephone or zoom whenever possible. We look forward to receiving updates and being able to see you again.
2020-05-28: As we await further guidance from the courts, please note that electronic filings are being accepted, with each court moving at their own speed. In the last couple of weeks, we have seen some hearings continued, while other hearings have been heard telephonically and in one case, even earlier than usual. In unprecedented times, we are learning how to adapt to this ever-changing landscape.
We understand that technology has gone from a luxury we would like to have, to a necessity we must have. Our staff is working around the clock to meet the growing needs of our clients. As a small, local law firm, we have been faced with very difficult decisions. We have been fortunate enough to retain 100% of our full time staff and have decided to invest in your, our client.
We are now able to work remotely, keeping our staff and clients safe. This is our number 1 priority. We have migrated our client management software to a virtual platform and are now utilizing multiple-authentication software to ensure that we are not trading physical safety for data security. We understand how important this is to our clients.
For example, the courts have been accepting electronic signatures for pleadings, financial statements, motions and complaints to hopefully help curb the spread of the virus. We fortunately possess the ability to prepare these documents for our clients. If you are a Reeves Lavallee, PC client or one from the past and need a way to electronically sign a document, please give us a call. My staff will set this up and walk you through the process in any way that we can.
If you have not been a client of Reeves Lavallee, PC and need the same service, please call the office line with code LAVALLEE2020 and we will try our best to accommodate every request.
We have also been closely following the housing court situation for our landlord and tenant clients. Please click HERE for our most up to date information. Please also see the Facebook Q&A from March 26, 2020 HERE.
If you have specific questions on the status of your case, or if you want more information, please do not hesitate to give us a call.
From our family to yours, we hope you all are well and safe.
