The firm will be closed Tuesday, Oct 30th unless mass transit service is restored.
All office computer servers remain operational and will continue so as long as there is power in the building. Should the office lose power all computer servers will switch to battery back-up and have been programmed to shut down in an orderly fashion within a few minutes. Accordingly, should you be working remotely during the storm it is important to save your work on a regular basis so as to minimize any data loss in the event of a power failure. Attorneys are encouraged to use this time to do any work they can remotely and input billable time directly into the billing system.
For information on the courts for Tuesday call 1-800-COURTNY or the court website at www.courts.state.ny.us. We hope everyone is someplace safe, dry and warm.
Please continue to check your emails and phone messages regularly during this storm.

The MTA has been directed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to begin an orderly shutdown and suspension of all subway, bus and commuter railroad service at 7 p.m. Sunday.
In light of the above, unless the storm takes an unexpected turn away from us, the office will be closed on Monday. The Courts have not yet announced what they plan to do but it is expected that the courts will be closed.
Karen will be emailing the calendars for Tuesday and Wednesday. Of course all EBTs listed are very tentative and court appearances are subject to the court's closure. You can come to the office today to get whatever materials you need or use the remote server to access materials online. It is suggested that if you plan on using the remote server you do it today as there is a possibility that service will be lost during the storm.
Please take all necessary precautions to ensure you can safely wait out the storm. Continue to check your email for future updates.
