Exceptional Counsel For Complex Cases

We help our clients avoid or address legal trouble.

August 3, 2020

We at Barulich Dugoni & Suttmann are continuing to monitor the ever-changing information from the CDC and our local health departments as we follow their guidance. The well-being of our employees, clients, business partners and friends remains our constant priority. We are committed to delivering the client service that has been the bedrock of our Firm’s values over the last 35 years in a safe and effective manner.

Effective Monday, August 3, 2020, the San Mateo County government office imposed a Shelter In Place for San Mateo County, among many others. Barulich Dugoni & Suttmann, have temporarily closed their office during the Shelter In Place. All of our employees are working remotely to continue to provide excellent customer service to all of our clients. As we navigate this fluid environment, we are prepared to support you and your business needs at this time as follows:


All staff are set up with remote access and can answer any communications to continue our great work. Please continue to reach out to your contact as needed.


We have the ability to conduct video conference calls and meetings. Our team is ready to assist in setting up these sessions. Please reach out to your current contact and they can schedule an appointment as needed.


  • We have cancelled and will reschedule all group and office social events.
  • We have implemented the CDC’s suggested protocols among our employees to help prevent the spread of the virus. We will continue these measures once the Shelter In Place restriction has been lifted.

Of course, like everyone else, we are learning. The well-being of our employees, clients, business partners and community remains our constant priority. We are receptive to any suggestions that would make you more comfortable while working with us. We stand beside you as we sail these uncharted waters.

Congratulations Managing Director Chelsea Suttmann
