Legal Services During COVID-19

As we have received a number of questions regarding the shift in legal services during the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to take this opportunity to answer some of them.


Despite many changes in how we do things, we are still offering legal services during the pandemic. We are proud to say that from the beginning of the pandemic, DCL Law immediately shifted our processes in order to better serve our clients.


During these unprecedented times, we are working hard to support our clients to the best of our abilities while ensuring their safety. We have transformed our operations and most of our services are now available virtually.


Real Estate, Wills & Estates, Probate and Issue Review Consultations

DCL Law continues to manage these matters electronically. We have been conducting consultations over the phone and signing meetings virtually through videoconferencing. At this time, this process has been seamless, and we have had no interruption or delay in our ability to offer these services.


Family, Small Claims and Other Litigation Matters

Presently the courts in Nova Scotia are operating on an essential service model which has limited and slowed down many of these cases. However, the courts are not halted entirely, and we have been seeing constant development on this front. The courts continue to open up their essential service model and what they are willing and able to accept under this model is constantly expanding. We at DCL Law remain informed and up to date on the ever-changing directives at the law courts and, depending on the nature of your matter, will be happy to assist you with taking your file to the next step.
