Our COVID-19 Response
CAL’s highest priority is the health and well-being of our employees and our clients. In an effort to protect our communities, and in light of the postponement of all non-essential court functions, CAL's office will be closed until further notice. Our clients should be assured that we will continue to work diligently on the matters entrusted to us. Communication by phone and mail, however, will be impacted. CAL asks that its clients, their families, and others, utilize our voicemail system, with the assurance that attorneys and staff will be regularly monitoring that system and will make every effort to respond to voicemails as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to monitor developments with the novel COVID-19 coronavirus.
