To our past, current and prospective clients:
As we are all adjusting to the drastic changes and new temporary realities in our lives during the current COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, our firm wants to assure you all that we remain committed to continue providing you with the top-quality legal representation and services you have come to know and expect from our attorneys and staff. To that extent, the following are the latest updates in regard to our firm’s operations and availability during these ever-changing times.
- The Governor of the State of Illinois has issued an executive order requiring all citizens of the State to ‘shelter in place’ through at least April 7, 2020, in addition to guidelines regarding various ‘social-distancing’ requirements.
- Pursuant to that executive order, legal services are considered to be an Essential Business. Therefore, our office remains open for business, subject to certain conditions. Specifically, and wherever possible, we are communicating with all current and prospective clients through e-mail, telephone, video-conferencing and such other remote means in order to protect not only your health and safety but also that of our staff.
- All area courts are presently restricted to conducting only certain, limited, emergency matters and/or mandated proceedings through at least May 1, 2020 and, in some courts, through June 1, 2020. We can advise each current and prospective client on a case-by-case basis whether your legal matter is one that falls within those categories of matters that are being heard by the courts at this time.
- In any event, and as is always the case, we are fully available to provide continuing legal services during this virus outbreak, such as conducting phone or video consultations, filing new cases with all local courts, conducting case discovery, securely exchanging and signing documents online, and otherwise providing every other aspect of legal services normally associated with any particular case – subject only to the temporary limited access to the courts and the temporary safeguard of remote communications with our clients and others.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us by the phone, e-mail or chat options offered through this website and we’ll be in touch with you as quickly as we possibly can. In the meantime, please stay safe and respect the ‘shelter in place’ order and social-distancing requirements, so that we may all get back to our regular lives and business just as soon as the danger has passed.
