Goldstein Law Group, S.C. is a law firm serving local businesses with respect to workplace and corporate law.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March 2020, the firm was faced with two immediate challenges: serving clients who were facing myriad questions relative to setting up remote operations, essential workforce, determinations, FFCRA, PPE, etc. and transitioning and shoring up its own operations.

Office manager Jill Harenda took charge of the second so the attorneys could attend to the first.

In May 2020, the firm turned its focus to returning to the office. Harenda took the lead setting up health and safety protocols, securing PPE, and procuring air filters (and filing for a city of Milwaukee grant to cover the cost). 

“None of this was easy, or anything anyone was truly prepared for, but in the end, we didn’t miss a beat. Of course, this is the very reason such efforts rarely get noticed,” said Mark Goldstein, principal attorney at the Goldstein Law Group, S.C.
