SDM Response to COVID-19
March 17, 2020
Clients and Friends,
During these challenging times we want to take a minute to simply say hello and that our thoughts are with each of you, your families and businesses.
In the midst of this unprecedented situation, SDM has come together to ensure our lawyers, paralegals and staff remain prepared to assist our clients, while ensuring the safety and health of our community.
We have moved to a primarily remote-work arrangement and have a robust system in place that allows us to be fully operational.
We are monitoring developments at the federal and state courts and will keep clients up to date on matters that may be impacted or delayed.
We are answering phone calls and emails as usual, and remain available to clients and colleagues.
Our physical office is being manned by a small team as needed to ensure continuity of business operations.
Please take good care of yourselves and your loved ones.
