COVID-19: How We are Serving and Protecting Our Clients

The COVID-19 crisis has caused us all to come together as a nation and unite for a common cause. As many of you are aware Governor Lamont has closed many businesses in his executive order dated March 20, 2020. As a law firm we are considered an “essential business” and we remain in operation to serve the legal needs of our clients and the community in this time of crisis.

Our operations continue without any interruption during the COVID-19 crisis. We remain open 7 days a week.

Rest assured that we are taking all available steps to protect the health of our clients by eliminating face to face contact during this period in accordance with the recommendations of the CDC. We have implemented video conferencing and DocuSign in order to remain fully accessible to our clients as we continue to act in accordance with their best interests during this difficult time.

This man literally saved my life! I had a criminal mischief and domestic charge along with a protective order put on me. Atty Friedman successfully got me into the required needed to have these charges dropped. Then came the felony protective order violation...Long story short I walked out of court today with all my charges nolled. Anonymous
