Drago + Toscano, LLP Statement on COVID-19

Dear Valued Clients,

As you all know, the rapid outbreak of COVID-19 (the coronavirus) has created great uncertainty for businesses and individuals. Our top priority, of course, is the health and safety of our friends, family, and community. We at Drago + Toscano, LLP remain committed to delivering the same level of counsel and service that our clients expect and deserve. Our commitment to serving your legal needs zealously will not waver during these trying times. Therefore, we have a plan in place to work and advise our clients remotely, if circumstances require us to stay away from our office. You will always be able to contact one of our attorneys to discuss your legal matter.

Our clients can be assured that we remain in close contact with state and local government officials about the status of agency hearings and public/community meetings. We will continue to advocate for our clients and your interests, while keeping you constantly informed of new developments. We fully expect to maintain business as usual, with as few interruptions as possible. However, if health concerns do escalate, we will be prepared to adapt accordingly.

Since the situation surrounding government meetings and hearings is constantly developing, our support staff will keep you abreast of the status of meetings and whether they have been cancelled, postponed, or rescheduled.

For everyone’s health and safety, we will not be holding any in-person meetings at our office until further notice. Instead, we will host client meetings remotely, either by phone, email, or video conference.

Thank you for your continued confidence in our team at Drago + Toscano, LLP. As always, you are most welcome to contact me with any questions or concerns.

With best wishes,

Jeffrey R. Drago, Esq.
