Please note that as part of our efforts to practice social distancing and help stop the spread of COVID-19, our staff may be working from home from time to time but will be checking messages regularly, so our response time may be a little longer than usual.    

Please be advised that due to recent developments surrounding the pandemic and the declared state of emergency, we will not be scheduling in-person client meetings until further notice. However, we remain available for consultations via telephone call or video conference.   If it is necessary to provide documents to our firm during this timeframe, please send them via fax or email.  

 

Thank you for your cooperation.
