MFBR lawyers and associates care!

In light of the constantly changing social and economic landscape in the world due to COVID-19, everyone at Mallari Fiel Brillante Ronquillo has taken steps to make good our steadfast commitment to serve our clients and our communities.

To this end, we designed a new business model incorporating the traditional “brick and mortar” and “virtual” law offices. This new model is to achieve the continuity of rendering our legal and business consultancy services to clients and friends, and the immediate implementation of our crisis management and business transformation activities.

Thus, we’re glad to announce that for every fortnight, half of our team will be physically present at our offices from Monday thru Friday, 8:00am to 3:00pm. Clients and our friends can reach us through our office phones and online platforms (website, emails, Facebook, LinkedIn, Zoom, etc.). And to ensure the health and safety of our staff, they have the option to be housed in the Firm’s private residence or shuttled back and forth using the company’s private vehicle. Safety protocols are also observed at our offices.

Finally, our team has prepared a series of materials around the impact of COVID-19 and related considerations. Please take time to view our sample articles and research published in our website. A complete listing and discussion of these articles are available in our newsletter to be distributed to our esteemed clients.

Should you have questions, please reach out to our Office Manager, Argie Macawile, at +632 86953395, +63977 8502357; or email our Managing Partner, Atty. Rob Mallari, at and

Grievance Mechanisms for Social Amelioration Program.

On 20 April 2020, the Department of Social Welfare and Development Undersecretary Camilo Gudmalin, thru a virtual press conference, encourages the concerned families who believe that they are eligible to receive social amelioration but were not included in the list of beneficiaries in the Social Amelioration Program to address their concerns in the Grievance Redress System (GRS) set up by the DSWD. Under DSWD Memorandum Circular No. 09 s. 2020 or the Omnibus Guidelines, families that are not listed in SAP can file their appeal with their respective Local Social Welfare and Development Office (LSWDO) within three (3) days from the distribution of SAP in their barangay. The LSWDO shall forward their grievances to the DSWD Field Office for evaluation within three (3) days from the receipt of the complaint. The public is also encouraged to report any anomalies or irregularities the conduct of the delivery of SAP thru GRS. They may address their grievances at the following numbers:

Under the same Memorandum Circular, all grievances related to the SAP implementation will be managed and monitored by the DSWD Central Office- Information and Communications Technology Management Service Operations Center through its 24/7 hotline number 16545. The Omnibus Guidelines also provides that the office is required to respond to the said report within twenty four (24) hour from the receipt of the complaint.
