COVID-19 Update March 26, 2020

MFA continues to aggressively represent our clients despite the pandemic

Clients and Friends,

I’m writing to update you on the state of affairs at MFA and our continuing response to the pandemic. When I last wrote it was to inform that the courts had closed and that we were beginning to use our technologies to distance from the office. The Circuit Court has issued two subsequent orders that have illuminated the path forward, so I wanted to update you.

Several questions arose following the March 15th order closing the courts for 30 days. They were answered in part by the Court’s following orders. On March 17th the court notified us that all court dates would be extended 8 weeks from the currently pending date. This primarily concerns the periodic 6-8 week case management status appearances we make on each lawsuit.

Subsequently, Illinoisans were essentially asked to shelter in place and the court issued a further amendment primarily addressing trial dates. That order on March 23d provided that trial dates through May 15th are converted to “Trial Setting Dates”. It is hoped that the new trial date would take place within 60 days, but that is aspirational and will have to comport with the schedules of the parties, witnesses, doctors and other lawyers. We will keep you informed.

In the meantime, MFA is working remotely. I really must stop here to commend our outstanding lawyers and staff members who have shown an extraordinary commitment to our firm and the clients it represents. The men and women of this firm have really risen to the occasion.

Working remotely over the last 4-5 days we have talked over the phone or communicated through email with nearly half, literally hundreds, of our clients. Whether to work on scheduling, check on medical records or bills or to just offer reassurance, everyone has been tremendous. I’m really proud of what our team has accomplished. Luckily, many opposing attorneys, insurance adjusters and expert witnesses have been near their phones. We have settled some cases, worked out some liens and filed some lawsuits. We continue to talk to new clients to see how we can help.

If you haven’t heard from us already, you will. If you need to reach us, we are just a phone call or email away. Thanks to a state-of-the-art phone system, new in 2019, and our remote access to our case management software we are able to do most any litigation related task. So, feel free to call or email. Our phone extensions and email addresses are conveniently located on the front page of our site at https://www.mfa-law.com/

COVID-19 Update March 19th, 2020

Dear friends and clients,

The world health crisis brought about by the coronavirus Covid-19 is of great concern to us all. We hope this writing finds you and your family well and we thank you for the trust you have placed in us as your personal injury and workers’ compensation law firm.

As we all endure the current impositions caused by the virus, we wanted to inform you of developments in the legal community and how we, as a firm, are addressing them. The Federal Court, the Circuit Court of Cook County and the surrounding counties as well as the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission have been ordered to substantially shut down for the coming 30 days.

In accordance with the CDC guidelines and our good judgment we will shift to substantially remote work beginning at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, March 18th, 2020. We will all be back in our offices as soon as possible.

In the meantime, our lawyers and staff members will be utilizing our communication technology (telephone, voicemail, and email), as well as our state-of-the-art case management software to answer your needs and to make certain that your legal matters continue to be aggressively pursued. We continue to work with our investigators, experts and your health care providers to advance your interests. In addition, we will continue to be in contact with the opposition in the defense firms and insurance companies in the prosecution of your case.
