Dear Friends and Clients: How We Protect Our Clients From COVID-19

The health and safety of our clients and employees is our top priority and we have been monitoring the news of COVID-19 carefully. We certainly understand the concerns in these difficult times and want to assure everyone that our offices will remain open to assist our clients. However, we want to briefly inform you of the measures we are taking to minimize the risk to our staff, customers and the overall community.

Restrictions relating to client office visits.

All persons attending any meeting at our office, as well as any persons accompanying them, must confirm in writing that they do not violate any of the CDC restrictions regarding travel to certain countries, contact with persons who have been diagnosed with a virus or are experiencing unexplained fever, cough or shortness of breath or residing with someone suffering from these symptoms.

Precautions at our office.

We have always strived to maintain a clean office space at all times and are taking extra measures when it comes to cleaning. We’ve also made hand sanitizer available in our conference room and our staff is instructed to wash their hands frequently. In addition, our staff has been advised to stay home if they are feeling ill or suspect they may have come in contact with the virus.

Alternative arrangements.

Although the offices of the Drizin Firm remain open, we are encouraging clients to make alternative arrangements for meetings. These solutions include the use of teleconferences and videoconferencing (via Skype or Zoom). As a last resort, we are more than willing to reschedule your meeting.

Court updates.

On March 13, 2020, the Chief Judge of the Clark County District Court issued an Administrative Order which eliminated all in-person court hearings with the exception of certain criminal matters. We have been in contact with the Probate Court and all matters are being conducted without a hearing unless the case is being contested. In particular, confirmation of sales of real estate are proceeding without a hearing and should only cause minor delays. Similarly, our firm is already conducting hearings with the Family Court by video conferencing. Unfortunately, some of the Courts have simply continued hearing dates as they are determining the most effective method to address these issues.
We will continue to provide updates as we receive additional information. In the meantime, stay safe and know that we have the capacity to get through this difficult time when we work together!
