At Brandy Austin Law Firm, PLLC, the safety and well-being of our employees and our clients are always our priority, and we recognize the important role we play in your legal representation. We are actively monitoring the COVID-19/Coronavirus situation and taking steps to help keep our communities safe. We wanted to share with you some steps we are taking.
Aligning with public health authorities
We have a team dedicated to our response to this pandemic and have Business Continuity Plans to ensure the continuation of services. We are closely monitoring updates from the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization regarding COVID-19. We will continue to seek guidance from these agencies, public health officials and government agencies on an ongoing basis.
Assisting our employees
We are in continuous communication with our employees reminding them about the importance of good hygiene, providing them with health education and support whenever needed. Employees who feel ill have been told to not report to work. Employees who have been in contact with anyone who has been quarantined have been asked to work from home. We are also working with members of the firm who have children and are unable to come to work due to school closures. We have specific quarantine and communication procedures in place to continue the continuity of each case.
What we ask of you
We are taking every precaution to ensure the safety and health of our communities, but we need your help. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms and have a scheduled appointment, please let our attorney liaisons know so that we can discuss options with you to ensure our collective well-being. Additionally, we have the ability to do everything electronically and can assist you however needed.
What are the courts doing?
