Gilbert McGloan Gillis Transition to Virtual Law Office
After having a physical presence in the uptown area for over 90 years, we are pleased to announce our transition to one of Saint John’s first virtual law offices.
The pandemic has brought about many changes in the way that legal services are being delivered.
We have been meeting with clients using Zoom and Teams when a face-to-face meeting is necessary or requested.
We have conducted trials in the Court of Appeal, Federal Court, and Court of Queen’s Bench with multiple lawyers by Zoom and Teams.
We have conducted lengthy pretrial hearings with multiple parties and lawyers by Zoom and Teams.
We have conducted regulatory hearings in other provinces by Zoom with multiple parties and lawyers.
We have found that all the costs of a physical office space, law library, furnishings, equipment, and parking are not required. All of which reduce the costs that are in the end charged back to the client.
We have found that we can deliver legal services at a significant less cost to our clients as overhead for offices, cost of travel and time for travel is not required.
We have found that the lawyers and staff prefer to work from home as they are much more productive, a benefit to all including our clients.
“We work in your world” has been and still is our motto and many of the recent changes allow us to serve our clients more efficiently –
“In your world – On your time”
We are available 24/7 by telephone, email, Zoom, Teams, text, fax etc. in keeping up with all the latest technology.
Your files are ultra-secure and accessible, at our fingertips, from anywhere.
The only real change is our new mailing address:
Gilbert McGloan Gillis
107 Charlotte Street
Saint John NB E2L 2J2
It is located in the Trinity Business Center where meeting space and board rooms are available on an as-needed basis.
Please take note of the new mailing address and feel free to reach out to us with any comments, questions or concerns.
*Tip: We use VOIP so that we can receive voice calls/messages, faxes and even text messages on our main number (506) 634-3600, which are all transmitted directly to us!
