As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and have an impact in Alberta, we want to ensure we are doing our part to keep our clients and members of our firm safe, and to minimize the risk of any possible transmission in the communities where we live and work. We are monitoring the situation closely and are prepared to respond to the rapidly changing nature of this pandemic.
In an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, it is the responsibility of all to limit social contact. This means that we will all have to adapt to the way business is conducted.
JMM Law will continue to provide legal services, however, we will be limiting in-person meetings. Our lawyers will meet with clients who have pre-arranged the meeting with the lawyer.
Our offices will be closed to all persons that have not arranged an appointment with one of our lawyers.
If you have scheduled an appointment with one of our firm’s lawyers, please telephone our firm’s receptionist (403-346-5591) and a lawyer will arrange to forthwith meet you at the elevator and allow you access to our offices for the meeting.
If you do not have an appointment but wish to speak with our lawyers, please call our receptionist at the above number and we will do our best to help you.
Our lawyers will continue to be available by telephone and e-mail.
Should physical delivery of documents be required, please notify your lawyer to make safe arrangements for delivery.
During these unprecedented times, we will take all appropriate measures to continue to provide the services you need, when you need them. You will be notified when our office is once again open to the public.
We sincerely hope that you, your families and your businesses remain healthy and safe during this crisis. Do not hesitate to contact your lawyer in this firm if you have any questions. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we continue to serve your needs.
We ask that you do not attend our office, even if you have an appointment, if in the last 14 days, you or anyone in your household:
- have had any flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, or shortness of breath, etc.)
- have recently travelled, particularly outside of Canada
- fall into a category where Alberta Health has recommended self-isolation
- have tested positive for COVID-19
