Coronavirus Statement As of Mar. 20, 2020

Valued current and potential clients:

As required by the Governor’s Proclamation of March 19, 2020, DSS Law will be physically closed to the public for the foreseeable future. We will reopen as soon as we are allowed to do so. Because we are allowed to work remotely, however, we will remain available to receive your phone calls each business day between the hours of 12 noon and 4 p.m. Please rest assured that we are still working on your matter, and we are still monitoring and complying with all filing deadlines and other deadlines which may apply. As you may know, Courthouses are closed, and banks are limited in their availability as well. This will require many matters, such as real estate closings and court hearings, to be postponed. We will notify you of the new dates as we receive them. Please call at the times listed above with any questions. In addition, our attorneys are routinely monitoring their emails. Feel free to contact us that way as well.

We appreciate your patience in these difficult and uncertain times. We will continue to do whatever we can, within the bounds of the law, to assist you with your legal matters. Thank you for your continued patronage of our firm.
