C&M Exempt from Orange County’s Emergency Stay at Home Order

26 Mar 2020

Important Announcement from Clayton & McCulloh

To our Valued Clients:

Orange County has issued an Emergency Order mandating that all “non-essential service” businesses be closed and the workers stay at home due to the COVID-19 virus. Clayton and McCulloh is concerned that this Order will cause some confusion and misunderstanding among our Clients regarding whether or how this Order affects our law firm. Although many businesses and professions are affected by this Order which goes into effect on Thursday, March 26, 2020, @ 11:00 p.m. (EST), legal services are specifically designated as an “essential service,” that is excluded from the application of the Order. Accordingly, it is the intention of this law firm to remain open, staff our office(s) and continue providing all legal services that are practical in these trying times, all while exercising good judgment regarding social distancing amongst ourselves and with our Clients. For the protection of our attorneys and staff as well as our Clients, we do request that our Clients communicate with us by mail, telephone, electronically and video conferencing, and avoid in-person meetings.

Though it is always possible that circumstances may change, we want you to know that the attorneys at Clayton & McCulloh are available to serve and work with our clients through this difficult, unprecedented and unpredictable time. Should have any questions, please call our Client Services or Public Relations Department.   Stay safe and stay well.
