Here are some frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 crisis:
- Is the Wolfson Law Firm in Miami open for business?
Yes. We have a limited staff (less than 10) at our office located at 3399 SW Third Avenue in Miami. We are not accepting walk-ins. However, we are available by phone or email at any time. In the event that we need anything signed, we can make arrangements by taking advantage of technology. Personal appointments may be available at our offices in Miami, Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach depending on the issues involved and the governmental recommendations. Please keep in mind that we have not had one instance where we were unable to meet our clients’ needs and expectations since this crisis began.
- How can I contact the Wolfson Law Firm in Miami?
You can always call us at (305) 285-1115 morning, noon or night. We have answered calls for help at all hours and no matter what, we will continue to do so. Other options to contact us include emailing us at email@example.com or using our “Contact Us” page of our website
- Is the Wolfson Law Firm accepting new clients during the Covid-19 crisis?
Yes, we are. In fact, we have continued speaking with and signing up potential new clients throughout the Coronavirus Crisis. We remain ready to help people throughout Florida from our offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers and West Palm Beach. If you were involved in any kind of car accident, wrongful death, slip and fall or any type of injury causing accident then call us at (305) 285-1115 so we can answer your questions and help you.
- How can a client of the Wolfson Law Firm get updates on their cases?
Just call us at (305) 285-1115 and we will answer your questions. If you leave a message, we will return your call within 24 hours. We ask our clients to understand that while our personal injury team are working on their files with the same urgency as always, the same cannot generally be said of other lawyers, insurance companies and the courts. As of this moment the courts are closed. It is our hope that the judiciary will make full use of video chat and conferencing to provide the legal community the opportunity to move our cases forward. Insurance companies and defense lawyers will typically “turtle” during uncertain times. That means they want to slow things down, hold their money and wait to see what happens with the economy. We expect some insurance companies to negotiate personal injury cases in the hope of getting a discount on the value of the claim because of these uncertain circumstances. At the Wolfson Law Firm, our lawyers will protect our clients from such predatory behavior by insisting on full, fair and complete compensation for our clients’ injuries and damages.
- Are the courts open?
At this time, courts are closed. If you had a court date during this shutdown, your hearing or trial will be rescheduled. The Florida Supreme Court has issued orders in line with these closures to protect litigants.
- What will happen with my deposition or mediation that is scheduled?
Our lawyers are taking all possible steps to maintain the scheduled events. In addition, we are stepping up all negotiations in an effort to achieve settlements. We will not cancel or reschedule any deposition or mediation unless there is no alternative. We have been successful in attending depositions and mediations using video conferencing technology such as Skype, Google Hangouts, or Zoom with clients securely connected from home. It is our goal to press forward with our cases as scheduled and it is our hope that defense attorneys and mediators will continue to work with us.
Again, call us with questions at any time. We are here to help. Have hope and faith. We will survive this crisis together.
