We are Committed to Serving Clients During COVID-19 Pandemic
Our law firm is open and working hard on your cases. We will be taking meetings via telephone or FaceTime. New clients’ initial interviews and documents can also be accomplished by E-Sign or a phone call.
El Paso, Texas ─ We want to express our concerns on the pandemic currently affecting everyone and everywhere around the world. Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is considered a respiratory illness with cold- and flu-like symptoms.
As the virus continues to spread, we are experiencing moderate chaos in what seems to be a public panic on an issue that grows more intense as time passes. The last thing we want to do as a community is panic in these types of emergencies. We encourage you to take precautions to keep yourself and your loved ones safe and in good health.
We all have a duty to keep ourselves, our families, our neighbors, and our communities safe right now. This means temporarily reshaping the way we live our lives to combat the novel coronavirus. At the Law Offices of Michael J. Gopin, we are taking this duty seriously. While our offices remain open, we understand the need for “social distancing,” our lawyers are available to meet with you remotely so we can answer your legal questions and discuss your case without in-person contact.
Coronavirus can be spread through physical contact, coughing, and sneezing. It is important to remember to wash your hands and cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, not with your hands but with a forearm or up shoulder. (We have provided a PDF document from www.aphagetready.com and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention with more information on preparing for COVID-19.) It’s important to educate yourself on this matter and listen only to factual information provided by proper communication channels.
El Paso has been through a lot in the past six months or so, but we remain strong. We want to express the importance of personal hygiene during this time and encourage you to make this a priority.
