This event is raising challenges for all of us, including our attorneys, staff and the New York State Court System. With everyone’s cooperation we expect to get through this trying time. The state have restricted access to the court houses. As a result, trials and court appearances will be delayed and postponed. Accordingly, if you have been notified of an upcoming trial, deposition, mediation, medical examination or office meeting, it will be rescheduled. We will do our best to forward notification of the new dates once they are known.

Thank you and please stay safe.
