As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our dear neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.
Until further notice, our office will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call us at (845) 897-5199 if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance.
This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.
Many of our clients and friends are health care providers and emergency responders. We need to do our part to keep them as safe as possible. Social distancing will help to break the spread and hopefully reduce the incidence of people becoming ill. It is incredibly important for the greater good that we wash our hands more than we ever did, that we sanitize and that we keep our distance. We are all in this together, and only together can we help our neighbors and friends.
Our firm, like many small businesses, will potentially suffer from this pandemic in the short run. Few businesses are immune. In the long run, FKCS will be fine. We all need to do our part in supporting local businesses in any way feasible – they need our help more than huge corporations.
When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance and support from a safe distance.
