The Lindsay, Ontario family law firm started the initiative three weeks ago as a way of giving back during the coronavirus pandemic. The pizzas are being prepared and delivered by North of Brooklyn Pizzeria in Toronto.

Previously, the firm sent pizzas from Brothers Ristorante to Lakeridge Health Oshawa and Pane Vino to the emergency room of Ross Memorial.

The firm, which helps families going through divorce with a collaborative approach, has also created a new COVID-19 and Divorce Information Centre to provide answers to common questions during the pandemic. Ontario residents can get answers to questions about how to work remotely with their lawyers, how the pandemic may affect court dates and even how to avoid sparking a divorce during the stress of quarantine.

Russell Alexander Collaborative Family Lawyers remains open, as lawyers have been deemed an essential service, but staffers are working remotely for their safety and the safety of their clients.
