The health and safety of our people is more important than anything to us, so we have made the decision for all team members to work remotely from home starting on Friday, March 20, 2020, until further notice. As a firm we are wholly committed to the health and well-being of our clients, team members, and communities, and to do what is socially responsible. Although we will be working remotely, there will be no disruption in service to our clients. We continue to operate at full capacity as we navigate the coming weeks, and will remain fully accessible to our clients through telephone and email. WMCZ is here for you.
A few key team members continue to staff our office between the hours of 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m., with proper social and physical distancing measures in place at all times.
On behalf of all of the team members at WMCZ Lawyers, I would like to wish everyone good health as we weather the next few weeks.
