COVID-19 Update: How We Are Serving and Protecting Our Clients

Is our office currently open during normal business hours?

Our office is currently still open and will remain open to our clients and new clients. The business hours in effect are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

When and how can I contact you?

We encourage our clients to contact our office team via emails and/or call the office to schedule a telephonic consultation as we are attempting to limit in person meetings.

What video chat platforms for you offer for clients?

We currently do not offer video chat platforms for our current clients. We encourage our current clients to set up a ZOOM account with your designated emails if you have a upcoming hearing.

Is our office accepting new clients?

Yes, we are still open to new clients seeking legal consultations. We are currently offering telephonic consultations to keep our staff safe.

How can I get updated regarding the status of my case or legal matter?

We encourage telephonic and email communication. Always feel free to contact us and obtain status updates if you have not been contacted by one of our staff members.

Are the courts of law still open in my area?

In Broward County, Chief Judge Tuter on March 13 ordered no new jury trail for two weeks. No public access at all will be allowed during that time at any of the four courthouses in the district. There are narrow exceptions, including people seeking protective injunctions against domestic violence. The Seventeenth Judicial Court website has a COVID-19 page that is continuously updated with further developments. It would not be surprising for the courthouse ban to be extended due to the circumstances.

Will my court date be rescheduled?

We are currently working with Judges Assistants on a day to day basis on hearings that have been pre-set. The court is assembling certain matters to be heard by phone or video chat via ZOOM. We cannot assure or determine what will be cancelled or rescheduled.

What if I cant come to court because I am sick or quarantined?

If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have been quarantined due to symptoms of COVID-19 we ask you contact our office at your earliest convenience and notify us of same to advise the court immediately.

Will scheduled deposition, mediation, arbitration or settlement negotiation occur as planned?

Due to all of these matters needing all parties to be present we cannot risk the health and safety of our clients and Attorneys to attend. These matters will need to be rescheduled for a later date and time. 

Client Reviews
Carmen G. Soto, PA and her amazing legal team is Excellent!!!! represented my daughter during divorce and we would absolutely recommend her!! Thank you and GOD BLESS YOU!! Ing. Delgado and Family
Carmen G. Soto, is an excellent attorney. She is very patient, knowledgeable, professional and my favorite.... flexible with payment plans. I was in need of an attorney to secure my sons future, and Carmen with her knowledge and experience provided the support we needed. I can honestly say that as a man/father we never get a fair chance in the courtrooms concerning family matters but Carmen made sure the Court systems saw past that stigma and justice was rightfully served. I would highly recommend Carmen G. Soto and her staff. Anonymous
Never having to use an attorney before, I was quite nervous and skeptical about my first meeting. Carmen Soto, not only made my first experience very comfortable, but was very informative and quite knowledgeable in the field of family law and divorce. She was there every step of the way for me as a support system, and her confidence and expertise made my otherwise very difficult situation, a very positive one. I highly recommend Carmen Soto. She is an excellent and compassionate attorney who clearly outlines all your options and takes a personal interest in your individual situation. Anonymous
