M&T Operating Policies during the COVID-19 situation
It is important to note that the Courts are NOT currently closed. The courts have delayed non-essential hearings and issued Emergency Judicial Orders that lay out various policies and procedures for how they will move forward. New cases may still be filed and current cases will still move forward. As such, we will remain open to assist you with your family law needs. During this difficult time, we have implemented a few new policies and procedures that will help us serve you better.
- We are operating in a digital work environment - We will continue to serve your needs via phone and email during normal business hours (8:30 AM to 5:00 PM) Monday through Friday. Whether you are a current client or potential client, M&T lawyers and staff will be responsive and available to help you.
- Virtual meetings - We will continue to be in contact with you as we diligently help you with your family law needs. We are implementing social distancing in accordance with CDC recommendations and are not scheduling in-person meetings at this time. All meetings we be virtual until the CDC revises its recommendations. If you already have a scheduled in-person meeting with your attorney, we will arrange for that meeting to take place virtually. You are more than welcome to schedule phone calls or video calls with your team going forward.
- Upcoming hearings/court dates - If you have an upcoming hearing or court date, depending on the county, it is possible that it has been postponed for at least 30 days. Some judges/counties will be proceeding with hearings as scheduled, but will be doing so virtually through Zoom or Skype. It is possible that the court may still proceed with your hearing as scheduled. PLEASE contact your attorney and team regarding any concern you may have related to the postponement of any court hearing or scheduled event.
