Staying healthy, keeping our practices moving, protecting
our families and community and praying for people all over
the world impacted by COVID-19 have become part of all
of our daily lives. Though these are scary times, together
we will get through this chapter in our history. Love,
compassion, bravery, selfless acts, empathy and resolve
are tools we all possess. We will use these tools together,
as a Bar, to overcome this challenge. Please know that Bar
leadership is working hard to ensure that you have the
information and resources you need to continue practicing
law through the duration of the pandemic. If there is
anything The Palm Beach County Bar or The Florida Bar
can do to help you, please contact me and my colleagues.
All the best to you and your families,
Ron Ponzoli, Esq. and Jazzy (a/k/a my furry counsel)

These recent weeks have added a little extra stress to each of
us to be sure. From court closures, to administrative orders
from different circuits, to law practices that must go on,
to kids at home and virtual learning, life seems a bit more
chaotic. Stay well by spending time with your family. Stay
well by helping a friend or neighbor. It is truly rewarding. Stay
well by sharing your joys and concerns with a trusted friend.
Ask how they are doing.
Stay well, friends!
R. Wayne Richter, Esq.
Life has changed dramatically for all of us. I’m working
remotely (with lots of kid interruptions!), home-schooling
three children and trying to stay sane! As we work through
these challenging times, let’s all try to live in this moment,
cherish the added time we have with our families, and
continue to be proud of the great privilege we all have to be
