Client Advisory: Dealing with Stress in an Unprecedented Time

By Samuel Ferrara, Elizabeth Kase and Carolyn Wolf

During these unprecedented times, we hope you and your families are staying healthy, managing stress, and being safe.

As of this post, more than one in five Americans is under Government Order to shelter at home and it is unclear how long these restrictions will last. Caring for loved ones who may be ill, managing remote learning for children and/or dealing with the economic fallout of this health crisis may also create heightened stress and friction within the household. Forced close living environments often only adds to that predicament.

Mental health professionals predict that, as a result, there may be increased incidents of domestic conflict on many levels. Although the order of life has profoundly shifted, our laws and legal protections stay firmly in place. We are here to help and support you and your loved ones who need legal guidance —we are fully operational, uninterrupted to serve you.

Please contact Sam Ferrara,, (Matrimonial and Family Law), Elizabeth Kase,, (Criminal Law), and/or Carolyn Wolf, (Mental Health Law), if you have questions, concerns or feel that you and/or your family is in need of assistance in these areas.
