Amid the coronavirus epidemic, Holland Family Law is taking all necessary precautions and following up-to-date government guidelines in the interests of protecting our clients and our staff. Until further notice, these are the steps we’re taking to continue operating as a business to serve you.
“I write this not out of panic, but out of reassurance. Family law cases will undoubtedly be impacted by the ongoing coronavirus, specifically face-to-face appointments with lawyers and hearings in the family court. However, Holland Family Law has contingency plans in place to continue serving current clients and people looking to hire a family lawyer.”
– Claire Holland, Director – Holland Family Law.
