October 31, 2012:
We survived the storm, and hope everyone and their family are safe. Our thoughts and prayers are with those impacted by this storm.
To all of our current clients: do not worry. Although downtown Manhattan is without power, all of our files are safe, protected and backed up. No deadlines will be missed, and our office will continue to operate in these days from a remote location. We are not currently taking any appointments due to the lack of power and transit lines. Our phones are working, but we ask that clients do not call for the next few days unless it is urgent.
Court hearings and USCIS interviews that were missed this week will be rescheduled. We will be in touch with those of you who have been affected by the closures and continue to post updates on this page.
