The team at Coker Law is working together to ensure that our valued staff, clients and families are following all recommendations provided by our local, state and national leadership. We know this is a stressful time with many changes occurring, so we want to reassure you Coker Law is taking every measure to ensure the welfare of our staff and the continuity of our service to our clients.
We are communicating with the courts to reschedule any postponed proceedings and will be pro-active in informing our clients of those new dates. Our office is now open during normal business hours and we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our staff, clients and visitors. If you would like to meet with one of our attorneys in person we can provide masks, gloves and hand sanitizer upon request. Also be assured that every staff member is sanitizing their work space each day and common areas are sanitized after each use. We are also monitoring staff temperatures daily. We remain available by phone and videoconference if you prefer. Your safety and well being is always our top priority.
Our thoughts are with all those impacted by the Coronavirus, and we wish to express our utmost gratitude to the healthcare professionals working tirelessly to care for our community
