Dear Family, Friends, Colleagues and Clients:
We hope that all is well with you and your family and that you are remaining healthy during these trying times.
Florida (as well as most of the entire United States) has been essentially locked down by the on-going threat of the COVID-19 virus / pandemic. Indeed, the pandemic and government policy responses to COVID-19 have put a stop (or at least severe limitations) to many “non-essential” businesses. Our legal staff is appreciative of all of the first responders, medical professionals, and people like you who are staying strong during these challenging times. We have been closely monitoring the outbreak, and we want to notify you how we plan to operate moving forward. At this time, Franco Law Group will continue to accept new cases and clients, but we will take several precautions to protect the health of our employees, business partners, and clients. Our response time (phone calls, emails, etc.) may be a little slower than normal, but we are continuing to work diligently on behalf of our clients (whether in office or virtually).
Stringent hygiene and cleaning practices are being followed at our office and has been a priority among our staff. We have put in place precautions to protect those who enter our office, and we are prepared to make accommodations. In an effort to minimize in-person interactions, Franco Law Group is available to meet clients and prospective clients online using virtual meeting service Zoom Meetings. Most, if not all events can be effectuated via email, telephone and fax. We are pleased to announce that we have also continued to have our social security disability hearings via telephone, so as not to delay any of our client’s cases and this has been going very well.
Given these challenging circumstances, we are willing to be flexible to communicate with you on your preferred technology platform.
Our commitment to protecting your legal rights will not change despite how grim the situation may seem in Tampa Bay and across the nation. In short, we stand ready to work with you in any safe way that we can.
Christine M. Franco, Esquire
