At Mendes Weed, LLP, our priority continues to be the health and safety of our staff, clients and community. Due to rising concerns over the spread of COVID-19 and to help combat the spread of this virus the team at Mendes Weed, LLP will be working remotely until further notice.

Our team will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves. We will share updates as to when we anticipate reopening the office. We will do our best to ensure that this decision does not delay or hinder any work on client matters; however, we are also aware that in these unusual times, families (including our own) are impacted with children home from day care/school, working remotely and closed businesses.

Also note, the Contra Costa County Superior Court will be closed until April 30, 2020.  We are unsure if there will be a future decision to extend the closure.  We will be updating our website with any news we receive from the Court.  If you have any questions about your individual matter, or if you need to speak with the office, you may call (925) 390-3222 and schedule a telephonic or Zoom appointment. 

Thank you for your support and understanding during this time.
