Boston Law Collaborative’s COVID-19 Policy

BLC’s COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Policy is to provide information and reassurance to help protect all of our clients, guests and employees.

To help protect BLC’s community, we have canceled all upcoming trainings, and will be sending updates once they have been rescheduled.

For those visiting our offices, we are taking precautions by washing our hands, offering hand sanitizer, implementing a “no-handshake policy,” are minimizing communal food, and suggest parties and attendees do not exchange business cards. We are also making sure that our meeting space is thoroughly cleaned before and after each use by wiping down the tables and chairs, and using Lysol spray on items.

For those who do not want to or are unable to make it to an in-person meeting, we have the capacity for videoconferencing or telephone sessions; and during this time period, we will be offering free cancellations.

BLC would like to remind everyone:

  • If you think you have been exposed to someone with the virus or are experiencing symptoms, please do not go out.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

BLC is continuing to monitor updates from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local officials, and will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions in the best interest of our clients and employees.

What Clients are Saying

From a mediation client:

“Thank you for the constructive role you played in mediating the subject dispute. I have been involved in a number of mediation sessions involving mediators from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, academia, and the private sector and none was managed more effectively than this one.”

From a training participant:

“This was the best training I can remember – excellent mix of informative presentations and stimulating role play.”

From a client (posted by the client at

“Divorce is painful, but David Hoffman guided me through the legal process with compassion and sensitivity. He was thorough and well organized, and masterful in mediation. I felt supported and respected. He understood the legal and emotional complexities of ending a long marriage and gave equal weight to both. He listened and cared about all of my concerns. I can highly recommend his services.”

From the parties in a personal injury mediation:

“We just want to thank you again for your help in resolving our lawsuit. Your level of professionalism was incredible. You and your staff helped to make an extremely difficult two days comforting for the bottom of our hearts.”

From a divorce client:

“I just wanted to thank you for your help during this difficult time. I appreciate your honesty and candor during the time we were working together. I can honestly say, looking back on everything, that I am pleased with how it (the settlement) all turned out. I know my son will be happy and taken care of. [H]e and I have a very close bond that will continue to flourish. [This is in] part due to how [my ex-wife] was treated through this settlement.”

From the Mississippi Center for Justice:

“We write to express our most heartfelt thanks to Boston Law Collaborative, LLC for generously contributing your exceptional talents to meet the legal needs of Hurricane Katrina survivors.

From a divorce client:

“I will be the first to tell of your kindness and thoughtfulness the next time I hear a bad joke about a lawyer or a horror story about a divorce.”

From a training participant:

“The Advanced Mediation Training was by far the best seminar that I have ever attended in my 23 years of [law] practice, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable and enriching experience.”
