Giuffré Law Offices’ business continuity plan in response to COVID-19

In accordance with the Governor’s recent executive orders, Giuffré Law Offices, P.C. has revised our Business Continuity Plan. Effective immediately, all members of the Giuffré Law Team (attorneys, paralegals, and support staff) are now working remotely. We continue to accept referrals of new cases and have telephone and email in-take procedures that include video
notarization recently authorized by the Governor. Details are set out below.

Working Remotely: For years now, our office has been fully equipped to work remotely. Our remote system has been in place and has been tested and used successfully, not just for days, but for years. It is safe, secure, and continues to be fully functional throughout the national response
to COVID-19.

Telephones: All incoming telephone calls to our office are routed to the appropriate Team member and all messages left in any voicemail box are immediately emailed to that Team member. Again, this system has been in place for years and we are experienced using it.

Mail: The United States Post Office has been deemed to be an essential business and continues to deliver the mail. Mail that is sent to our office will be received without any delay at our remote location and will be accessible to your Giuffré Law Team. We will continue to send documents
by U.S. mail and by Federal Express.

Notary: New rules instituted by the Governor now allow notarizations to be performed by video conference. All of our notaries are equipped to perform notarizations in this manner via Face Time or Skype.

The Courts: The Courts’ response to COVID-19 has been outstanding. Most courts are closed to all but emergency filings and appearances. However, the Courts’ electronic filing systems are fully operational. We continue to file documents electronically and we continue to meet all the deadlines of all of our clients’ cases. We are monitoring all of the directives of the state and federal court systems and have been in contact with all clients whose cases have been affected.

New Cases: We continue to accept referrals of new cases. We use remote case in-take by phone, email, remote signing, and video notarization. Please feel free to call with any questions or concerns you may have. If you are injured, remember, “Don’t Delay, Call Team Giuffré.”

In these ways we will continue to assist our clients with the minimal amount of disruption and be
prepared to “hit the ground running” when the current emergency ends.
