Covid-19 - Important Notice from Beltrami & Company

At the moment we are still working as close to normal as possible. The criminal justice system is in turmoil. It can’t stop, so to that extent at the moment we are regarded as “essential workers”.

The courts are still operating, though at a reduced level. Beltrami & Company believes in the rights of individuals and businesses to be fairly treated within our justice and courts system and will continue to do all in our power to continue this role.

We will be restricting face to face meetings but will be available by telephone, video-call, etc. for all work - emergency or otherwise. In these exceptional times it is important to remember that life will go on, people will continue to need each other and good legal advice. Let’s work together to face the future.
