           Most of our clients fall within the category of the Commercial Facilities Sector and will be able to continue working with the understanding the anyone that can operate remotely should do so and that anyone in an office setting must practice the recommended social distancing procedures.

At Seide Law, we have closed our “brick and mortar” office for the duration of the crisis. We are continuing to operate remotely from our respective homes and are continuing to process lawsuits to the extent the various court systems allow. Please do NOT mail anything that is time sensitive to our office. All new file requests and documents of any kind must be sent via email. We will continue to be available by email and by telephone. The office switchboard has no attendant on site but you may reach us as follows:
           Rick Seide (949) 474-8000, Ext. 245
           Ellen Ticknor (949) 474-8000, Ext. 255
           Ron Brown (949) 474-8000, Ext. 230
           Thank you and stay healthy!
