We are so grateful for you
As the holidays approach, Morici, Longo & Associates would like to thank our clients, colleagues and friends for their continued support. Thank you for your business, your unwavering confidence, and your commitment to our firm.
Giving Thanks In 2020
This is certainly not a typical Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving. 2020 has been a year of disruption, turmoil, and pain. It will not be missed. In 1942, when Rockwell's "Freedom From Want" painting was first published in the Saturday Evening Post, America and the world faced great challenges. We were deep into World War II with American troops on the European continent, Germany invading France, and the war against Japan raging in the Battle of Guadacanal. Families were parted as servicemen were oversees. Nonetheless, Americans celebrated Thanksgiving. This year we face Thanksgiving in the midst of the global pandemic. The CDC recommends, and we agree, that gatherings should be limited and families should enjoy their feast only with the members of their household. Despite these precautions, we hope you will enjoy this wonderful American tradition.
This year as we look around our homes, our families, our world, we truly see that there are so many things for which we are thankful. We look with hope toward the future, for a vaccine and for normalization of our daily lives and civil discourse.
We at Morici, Longo & Associates are thankful for the wellbeing and dedication of our lawyers and staff. Most importantly for the faith and confidence of our clients past and present and for our ability to help the injured.
With courts almost entirely closed since March and no reopening yet scheduled, we have kept our office open, sometimes remotely, and have advanced our clients cases. None of our employees have missed a paycheck or suffered reduced benefits. Our technology has served us and our clients well.
True to form, the insurance companies against whom we work, are putting the bottom line first and resolutions have been slow as they sit on their wallets. We expect that as 2021 unfolds, courts will reopen for jury trials and we will, once again, be able to force their hands. It is as clear as it has always been that some folks who claim they are the “Good Neighbors” or “The Good Hands People” are so only when collecting premium dollars, not when paying claims. Their reckoning will come as we continue to prepare our cases for eventual trial or settlement.
In the meantime, please keep the faith and know that we are there when you need us or when an accident or work injury strikes a friend, family member or co-worker. Please enjoy reflecting on all that you have, the love of your family and accept our best wishes for a safe and healthy Thanksgiving.
For months we have been advised to distance, wear masks, hand wash, and avoid large gatherings. This is certainly true as we approach Thanksgiving and, in fact, the Center for Disease Control has advised against Thanksgiving dinners going beyond the residents of a single household. We at MLA appreciate the importance of these health concerns and provide the following information for your use. Personally, many of us at the firm are celebrating Thanksgiving dinners by Zoom or FaceTime, much as we did at Easter. Please stay safe, give thanks and enjoy your holiday.
