COVID-19 Update

Due to the COVID-19 virus, O’Flynn Weese LLP has temporarily suspended most in-office appointments and the front door is now closed during regular office hours. While most lawyers and staff are working from home, we are maintaining a skeleton crew at the office and everyone is still available by email. If a matter requires an in-person meeting to review and sign documents, those must be scheduled by specific appointment, which we invite you to do by email.

If you do not have access to email, you can still call and leave a message, but please note that faxes and voicemails are now being checked only periodically. We also have a door slot which is always open for smaller deliveries.

Of particular note, all non-emergency court matters have been cancelled at both the Ontario Court of Justice and Superior Court of Justice. As a result, all court attendances currently scheduled into early April are no longer proceeding. At this time, we are being advised that new court dates will not be scheduled until at least early June. We will continue to monitor the court situation and we will provide updates and contact clients as necessary as soon as more information becomes available.

For additional information regarding court matters, please see the following webpage: https://www.ontariocourts.ca/scj/covid-19-suspension-fam/

We look forward to resuming regular operations as soon as it is feasible and safe to do so.
