Clients and Friends,
As you know, we have been conducting business remotely as we weather the Covid-19 pandemic and learn a new normal. All aspects of our Firm are fully functional and the attorneys, paralegals and support staff are performing all essential tasks to insure that our legal files continue moving forward. Where appropriate, and with the consent of our clients and adversaries, we have conducted depositions and mediations via video conferencing technology. We continue to provide reports and e-mail updates regarding all significant developments and information. We are also in touch with our adversaries to exchange discovery items and to resolve discovery disputes without the need for court intervention. While the courts are presently closed to all non-essential matters, we are beginning to see the implementation of a virtual court system in which conferences and motions will be held either by video conference or phone. Note that the courts are still not accepting any filings, and that includes new lawsuits and answers, motions, etc.
Virtual lawyering has its challenges but has been remarkably successful. Rest assured that our Firm will continue to provide its customary level of superior service and responsiveness to meet all of your legal needs. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please stay safe and healthy.
Very truly yours,
The Partners and Employees of FCH
