Surrogate’s Courts’ Response to the Coronavirus
We are taking aggressive precautions to minimize risk while remaining fully operational. The firm is monitoring updates by federal and local authorities. Here are some of the measures we have implemented:
Status of Offices
As of Sunday evening, March 22, all of our offices are closed in accordance with Governor Cuomo’s mandate. We have implemented contingency plans that permit attorneys and other employees to work remotely.
Clients can expect continuity of services, operations and accessibility via phone and email. You will be able to reach our attorneys via their regular direct dial phone number. Calls are being set up to ring directly in their remote location, or will be automatically forwarded to the location. We have conducted testing to ensure that all attorneys and paralegals have access to the firm’s systems through remote access, that they are able to conduct client meetings through online services, and that all other essential functions are able to operate.
Depositions, Closings, Meetings and Litigation
If you are scheduled for a deposition, a closing or any other meeting of any kind, your attorney will contact you regarding the logistics. As many of the courts have suspended hearing new litigation, this will impact the progression of open matters. Any clients impacted by these developments will be kept apprised of the situation.
We wish all in our community good health. This is a trying time, to be certain, yet we are confident that through working together, we will continue to service our clients’ needs and that we will all learn lessons that make us stronger and more resilient in the months and years to come. Thank you for your continued trust and partnership.
