​​​​Our Response to COVID-19

In accordance with the recommendations and executive orders issued by our State and local officials, and in an effort to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, we have implemented temporary changes to our business practices. We believe the following will continue to serve our clients during this extraordinary time:

Non-Urgent Court Matters. The Ventura County Superior Court discourages in-person attendance at probate hearings (probate, conservatorship, guardianship, and trust). If you would like, we will assist you to participate in the judicial process by coordinating your audio or video remote access to the court proceedings.

Non-Urgent In-Office Appointments Postponed. We have greatly reduced our work hours and suspended all in-office appointments. To help minimize direct contact, we will schedule a telephonic or video appointment. Once the current health and safety concerns subside, we will resume face-to-face in-office appointments.

Ongoing E-mail Communications Encouraged. Because the nature of your matter may require our prompt guidance or assistance our staff will work remotely to address urgent issues. All team members have access to e-mail. While you may continue to communicate with us via e-mail as you did before this crisis, please understand that our response time may be delayed.

Temporary Delays in Telephone Availability. Telephone calls to our office will continue to be received by Samantha, who will do her best to respond or pass on a detailed message to another team member to address. You also may continue to e-mail "office@attorneybythesea.com". Samantha will follow up as necessary.

Please be assured that we are doing our best to minimize the disruption this situation may have on your matter. 

Lastly, please take good care of yourself and your loved ones. Stay safe. Stay healthy. Be patient and kind. There is no better time to strengthen our bonds, to help each other through this storm, and come out the other side stronger. Together, we will.
