WACHP Continues Remote Work During the COVID-19 Pandemic
In compliance with Federal and State guidelines, the attorneys of Waldon Adelman Castilla Hiestand & Prout have transitioned to working remotely for the coming weeks. Our technology allows us full access to client matters. All attorneys are available by email and cell phone to assist with ongoing cases, accept new assignments, and advise clients as to the effect of the Georgia Supreme Court’s Statewide Judicial Emergency Order and Governor Brian Kemp’s Executive Order on pending claims and litigation. When possible and in the best interest of our clients, depositions and other meetings will be held via videoconference. A skeleton staff will be physically present on a rotating basis to process mail and execute essential in-office operations. Upon request, we will hold invoices for ninety (90) days on new litigation matters received during the pandemic in an effort to ease cashflow for existing and new clients. Waldon Adelman Castilla Hiestand & Prout is dedicated to protecting the health of our firm members, clients, and community. We look forward to seeing everyone back together as soon as we are assured it is safe to return.

We recognize the desire of our insurance clients to move matters towards a conclusion in an efficient and expeditious fashion.
