Concerned About Coronavirus in Maryland? You Don’t Need to Leave the House to Meet with Our Lawyers

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 (COVID-19). At Cohen & Dwin, P.A. we are taking this duty seriously and are practicing the “social distancing” guidelines recommended by health officials. To ensure you still have access to us, we are available to meet with you remotely so we can answer your legal questions and discuss your case.  

Across the nation, people are limiting in-person contact as much as possible to help slow the spread of the virus and allow our healthcare system to operate within its capacity. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to provide important guidance about what we all can do to protect ourselves and others from exposure. (Visit the CDC website for the most up-to-date information and recommendations.)

During this challenging time, our attorneys remain available to talk about your legal issues over the phone or via free video conferencing services such as:  

  • Facetime
  • Skype
  • Zoom

If you are ready to speak with a lawyer now, please contact us. We can meet with you remotely and get started on your case immediately without having to talk in person.
