Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker has issued an updated order that all businesses not involved with providing essential services or supporting those providing such services are to remain closed until May 18, 2020. Lawson & Weitzen provides an array of legal services, many of which under the Governor’s original Order (and the extension) are considered “essential services.” Since the Governor's order, we have been providing significant legal services, not only those deemed to be “essential,” to our clients and we intend to continue doing so, whenever asked, through our extensive and secure technological platform.
As a firm, we worked quickly to ensure a seamless transition from working physically in our offices to providing our client's services remotely. We continue to monitor updates from the government and courts, both in Massachusetts and wherever our clients need services.
Our platform allows us to safeguard the health and safety of everyone in our firm as well as our families, friends, and colleagues while remaining committed to protecting clients and available to perform customary services. If you want to reach us, just simply email or call any of our attorneys. We are prepared to work with you virtually or if the need arises and we can do so safely, in person, to meet any challenges and address any problems you are facing.
In the last few weeks, our attorneys have made telephonic appearances before courts, prepared wills for clients, filed and defended law suits, participated in real estate closings and refinancings, and have continued to advise our clients.
We hope you and your families remain safe and healthy. And we continue to send our thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery to all those already afflicted with COVID-19.
If you have any questions or if we can be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
