COVID-19 Response

In these unprecedented times, The Canina Law Firm is taking every possible precaution to ensure the health and safety of our clients, prospective clients, and employees. Our office will remain OPEN for business and we will continue to make ourselves available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We are available to you regardless of whether COVID-19 makes it necessary to close our physical office.

Our firm has invested significant resources into our technology in recent years. This allows our attorneys and/or staff to work from home if necessary while maintaining the quality of service that our clients are accustomed to.

Our firm has went above and beyond implementing the following policies and procedures to ensure safety:

  • Our office is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected multiple times per day using hospital-grade disinfectant. We have invested in a HEPA air purification system and a commercial, eco-friendly germ-fogging machine (similar to what major airlines are currently using) which is used after each visitor leaves our office. We have a large supply of hand-sanitizer readily available for use by our staff and our visitors.
  • We encourage clients and prospective clients to meet with us in our office, however, our office is fully capable of telephone or video conferencing if preferred. We are happy to set up a telephone or video conference for you in lieu of a personal meeting.
  • All attorneys and staff are ordered to stay home if they are feeling ill with NO EXCEPTIONS.
  • Our attorneys and staff have restricted travel to ONLY business-related travel. We closely monitor the personal travel of all employees as well as their attendance at any gathering of over 10 people.
  • Our office strictly adheres to ALL CDC Guidelines including social distancing and proper personal hygiene procedures.
  • Our attorneys appear by telephone for court hearings, whenever possible.
  • Even if our physical office is ordered to close at some point in the future, please call us at 321-728-0989 as we will have the reception staff answering calls and directing them appropriately. We will still be able to conduct video and/or telephone conferences remotely as necessary.

Please know that the health and safety of our employees, clients, and colleagues is our number one priority. We will take whatever measures necessary to minimize the impact that the Coronavirus has on our office. If you have any questions or comments, or if we can do anything to help you, please call us.

Best wishes for you and your families’ health,

Richard G. Canina
