    Comments Off on Covid-19 Update: Remote Office is Online

    New Orleans is one of the growing “hot spots” for Covid-19 spread, with the highest per capita positive testing rate in the country. We hope that dubious “first” will diminish over time. Nonetheless, and in compliance with orders from Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, we at OB&S are working from home. Rest assured that each of us is fully operational from our homes, and you can still be in contact with us by calling the office phone number or emailing us. Courts are closed in the metro New Orleans area and throughout the state. Nonetheless, e-filing and fax filing remain available. We are conducting remote mediations and depositions utilizing video conferencing technology. This may be the “new normal” for the next few months.

    We wish our friends, colleagues and clients good health and good spirits in this challenging time.
