I never imagined that this would be the first address I would give to our members.
I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and safe. You should know that the Bergen County Bar Association continues to operate during this difficult time in order to serve our members and provide as much information to you as possible.
To accomplish this objective, I have coordinated daily contact with the Sheriff’s Department, the office of the County Executive and Assignment Judge Mizdol in order to provide you with the most current information available. Our executive board is in frequent discussions in order to keep you apprised as to updated protocols. For example as we receive information regarding attorney visits at the jail, and attorney video conferencing for court proceedings we will advise you as quickly as possible. You are encouraged to visit our website for this information and to check your emails for our e-blasts.
We have been through many hard times and we have always been able to overcome them. This time is no different. We should continue to practice with the utmost professionalism that is characteristic of our Association’s members.
Joseph A. Maurice, Esq.
