The attorneys and support staff at Garcia & Milas want you to know that we are conducting business and available to assist you with your matters as always. We are following best practices, which means in-person contact is being limited. Communications with us, absent emergency situations, should be by email, telephone, or video conference. All our lawyers and support staff have the capability to work remotely and provide the full range of services.

Federal and State courts have limited the types of proceedings that will be going forward at this time. Many local, state, and federal offices are restricting public access. Agencies, businesses, and entities have reduced their operations, all of which may affect timing of your matters. We will endeavor to keep you informed of impacts.

We are here to assist you in any way we can, whether with your regular business operations or with new issues that arise as a result of the current COVID-19 situation. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
