COVID-19 Pandemic

Mar 19, 2020 | COVID-19 Pandemic

Dear Colleagues, Clients and Friends,

Drury Pullen, A Professional Law Corporation welcomes you to follow our blog as our communities focus on health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. During this crisis, it will be our goal to provide as much information as we can about COVID-19 “shelter in place” mandates throughout California, Superior Court operations, and general information about your divorce.

While our office remains open, we are limiting the in-person contact that we have with current and future clients. We are working in a primarily remote environment and are here to serve you and your legal needs with respect and compassion. We have established a platform to communicate via Zoom and we have enhanced our capabilities to conference call as well.

Please share our information with your friends and family. We will get through this together. We are California Strong! Please visit our website where we will be posting updated information on our blog. Be on the lookout for our remote dissolution of marriage platform as well as information about remote family law mediation services if needed. Please also follow our Instagram @CaliforniaDivorce for up-to-date information. You can also call our main number (805) 879-7523 24 hours a day.

We wish you good health.
