As Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns grow we are striving to maintain our highest service levels and uphold the health and safety of our clients, our team, their families and broader community.
Brown Henderson Melbye is taking the following proactive approach.
1. Office Space Closed
Our physical office space in Athlone Court is closed until further notice.
2. Assisting Clients with the Use of Technology
We have the technology for our lawyers and team to work remotely from home. As a result, we are adjusting how and where we work but continuing to help our clients and their families.
3. Accepting New Clients
We continue to accept new clients. Therefore, you can book appointments by telephone with Patricia Routien who can be reached at our office number 250-595-2220.
4. Meeting Options
We offer both new and existing clients a variety of meeting options. For instance, meetings can be arranged by telephone or video conferencing. We also are equipped to use a variety of video conferencing platforms.
5. Resolution Options with Courts Reducing Services
The way your family law matter progresses may be impacted by the changing situation. For example, all courts in British Columbia have suspended regular operations. We are working with new and existing clients on alternative ways to move their family law matter forward including through Mediation and Arbitration service options.
6. Following Government Recommendations
We continue to follow all federal and provincial recommendations and guidelines related to COVID-19 such as the Government of Canada Coronavirus website. This situation is evolving, and we will continue to update our website to keep you informed.
If you are an existing client and have questions, please be in touch with your lawyer/assistant team. They are here to help. For all new client inquiries, please contact Patricia Routien at 250-595-2220 if we can assist.
In conclusion while we are taking all necessary precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, please be assured that we are well prepared to respond and meet the needs of our team and clients.
