Homepage > OFT Law: A Letter to Our Clients About COVID-19

To Our Valued Clients,
I write to provide a brief update regarding OFT Law operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. First and foremost, we are doing our very best to support our clients, staff, and community. As lawyers who fight for injured people, we hope to bring our compassion, willingness to help, and courage to the challenging times ahead.
We have implemented a variety of day-to-day changes as we grapple with the fallout from the pandemic.
The OFT Law team will be working remotely for the foreseeable future. Because OFT’s systems utilize cutting-edge cloud-based platforms, we expect a minimal interruption in our ability to respond to client calls and emails.
Our goal is to provide prompt and exceptional customer service despite these changes.
That said, we ask for your patience as we move forward over the coming months. With the closure of schools, some of us expect to work modified hours to accommodate parenting responsibility. Courts are moving hearings and deadlines and even partially closing. Opposing lawyers, insurance companies, and health providers are all adjusting their practices and we expect dramatically slowed responses.
We remain committed to your case and will do our best to keep everything on track.
As food safety lawyers, we have a deep respect for public health officials that work to limit the spread of infectious disease outbreaks—whether Salmonella, E. coli or coronavirus—and doctors and nurses who help care for those affected. We hope that you and your family remain safe in the coming weeks, and urge you to follow the CDC guidance to stop the spread of this disease.
Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
The OFT Team
