Due to the Covid Pandemic we have introduced safety adjustments as detailed below.
Covid Safety Adjustments
Although we are open for business (including for new matters) both your and our staff safety is of paramount importance and we have introduced the following measures during the current covid pandemic:
Whilst some of our staff are working in our offices, some are on leave and others are working remotely. Please therefore allow a bit longer for us to return your calls;
We have adjusted our office opening times to 9am to 4.30 pm (weekdays Monday to Friday);
We are able to deal with many matters by telephone or video conferencing without the need for clients to visit our offices;
Office appointments are available if they are necessary by prior arrangement. Please phone us on 01709 510999 if you require an office appointment, we can then assess whether an appointment is necessary and if it is then we can arrange one. Please do not just turn up to the office without an appointment. If you are given an appointment please note that (for your safety) we are following social distancing procedures. Please arrive for appointments on time and not too early.
If you have sadly lost a loved one, firstly may we offer our sincere condolences.
We understand there may be questions you need to ask, enquiries you wish to make, and you may need advice. Whilst the Offices of Oxley & Coward are now closed in line with Government guidelines, members of the probate team are still working remotely from home and can provide advice by telephone and video conferencing. For clients who prefer or require face to face meetings we can offer pre-arranged appointments with social distancing safeguards (using the emergency contact details for Jayne Jackson: 07515199881 or email Jayne.email@example.com).
Whether you are an existing client, a new client or your loved one held their Will with us, please do not hesitate to contact us on the emergency telephone number or by e-mail. We will use our best endeavours to help you and put your mind at rest in these unprecedented times.
