Hurricane season is around the corner once again, so the question is: Is your law office prepared for the big storm? South Floridians deal with extreme weather conditions every year. Miami is, at best, slightly above sea level, and any extra precipitation can cause disastrous flooding. Hurricane Irma showed us the extreme damage heavy rains can cause when combined with high tides and full moons. During Irma, we witnessed the flooding of downtown Miami and watched as Brickell Avenue was rocked with two-foot waves.

Whether it be a severe thunderstorm or a full-blown hurricane, it’s important to be prepared for the worst. But being prepared is not only about protecting the physical office, files and computers, it’s also about taking care of the staff’s well-being during and after serious storms.
