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.

Services for Families

BLC provides a range of services for families including mediation, collaborative law, arbitration and parenting coordination.

BLC attorneys and neutrals specializing in family law are all trained mediators, experienced practitioners, and committed to pursuing the best resolution for their clients. In many instances, this may mean opting for non-litigation solutions such as mediation, collaborative law or arbitration. We also provide litigation services as needed, as well as other dispute resolution services such as case evaluation and parenting coordination.

“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.”

This is the Agreement to Mediate  we use in our family mediations.

Feel free to contact Karen Richards with any questions regarding dispute resolution services for your family.
