OUR SERVICES DURING THE CORONACRISIS
As a result of further developments with regard to the coronavirus, Van Steenbrugge Advocaten would like to inform you about the further functioning of its office.
We guarantee our business continuity and remain available by e-mail and telephone between 8:00 am and 7:00 pm. Consultations can take place after consultation.
However, the health and safety of our employees and clients remain an important concern, which is why we strictly follow the measures imposed by the government: we wash our hands very regularly and use paper towels, we limit physical contact among each other and keep distance, mouth masks are worn in public areas, our offices are cleaned daily and everyone uses their own work equipment. The office also offers sufficient space to work remotely from each other.
The Covid19 measures also have an impact on the functioning of the judiciary. Many sessions have been canceled for a certain period and postponed to a later date or according to special guidelines. If your file is involved, we will of course contact you personally so that you are aware of this.
Meetings will temporarily be digital as much as possible and prison contacts will be handled by telephone, but exceptions can always be made. We will check this with you, as our services simply require a tailor-made approach, in which the interests of the client always come first.
If there is a lockdown be announced, a number of lawyers (including Mr. Walter Van Steenbrugge themselves) are ready for further services.
HOW TO CONTACT US?
If you are already a client, please contact us by phone or e-mail for an appointment.
If you are not yet a client, you can contact us by telephone or e-mail for an intake interview, so that we can assess together with you whether we can defend your interests. This is done on the basis of several criteria, such as the value of the dispute, the estimated cost, the capacity of the person involved, the chance of success, and so on. After the intake, a first appointment can be made for a thorough discussion.
YOU ARE LIKELY PREPARED?
Are you entitled to legal aid?
Your insurer may bear the attorney's fees, so it is a good idea to check your legal assistance policy and guarantee beforehand or to ask us to do that for you. You can read more about legal assistance on this page.
Will you email us?
Be sure to include your name, surname and a telephone number where you can be reached. Please also include when we can call you back. Please note that an email cannot be the starting point of a customer relationship between yourself and one of our lawyers. Legal advice will only follow after we have concluded an agreement.
Do not include overly confidential or sensitive information in an email. We may represent a party with opposing interests.
