Attorney Consultation in the time of Covid-19

During these difficult and confusing times, people often wonder whether they can or should consult with attorneys and, if so, how that consultation can occur in a safe manner. For those who are injured or suffering from an asbestos or other occupational illness, like mesothelioma, this is a particularly important question because those individuals already have a compromised immune system.


We at PWHD are very conscious of the Covid-19 situation and are doing our best to continue consulting with and representing clients, while doing everything in our power to ensure that this consultation occurs in the safest possible environment.


For now, we prefer to conduct meetings over a video-conferencing platform such as Zoom®, FaceTime®, or Microsoft Teams® to ensure everyone’s safety. We will give you all the instructions you need to communicate with us over those platforms, and we can even loan you an iPad for the video conference if you need one. These video conferences give you the opportunity to see us, get to know us, and communicate your legal needs from the safety of your own home, without having to come to our office.


While our office is still technically closed to the public, we can make an exception if an in-person meeting is necessary. We have large conference rooms with plenty of space to ensure adequate social distancing. We disinfect our facilities daily so that you can be assured that your meeting will be safe and healthy. And we ensure that all participants wear masks and, if a participant does not have a mask we will provide one.


If you need legal representation, do not hesitate to contact us!
