Lawyers are on the Government of BC list of essential services. The government recognizes that BC lawyers provide services which are essential to preserving life, health, public safety and basic functioning of society. As BC lawyers, Nicola Law Group is proud to do our part to continue to provide essential services which British Columbians have come to rely on in their daily lives.
Nicola Law Group continues to help people who are under investigation or facing criminal charges. Our offices are open during the COVID-19 pandemic, although we are operating differently. Rather than meeting clients in person at either of our downtown locations, client meetings now occur using video-conferencing technology, or by telephone. Our whole team is working Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
In addition to moving to video-conferencing technology and telephone meetings, we are limiting the number of staff in our office, and maintaining physical distancing between staff who visit the office. We have also implemented other safety procedures, such as increasing the frequency of office sanitizing. Walk-ins are on hold until further notice. If you would like to to visit us, please call ahead so we can make arrangements that maintain your safety and that of our staff.
Together, we will get through this. We thank you for your understanding as we adjust to new ways of serving clients. Stay safe!
