Coronavirus Impact and Assurance: Yes! We are still open for business!

For the last year, thanks to the hard work of all of our staff, and you, our clients, no one who works at this office has gotten Covid while working here, and we have not spread a single case to any of our clients, while getting all of our client's legal needs taken care of. With the spread of vaccination the end is in sight, normal times where we can meet our clients in person in the office are just around the corner.

During the transition we will be having some in person, in office appointments for clients who have already been vaccinated, and for whom the CDC recommended period of time has passed since their last shot. Of course, for anyone who would prefer a phone or video appointment for safety, convenience, or any other reason those types of appointments are always available.

For our clients who have not yet completed the vaccination cycle phone and video appointments are of course available, and, with the return of warm weather we will again be offering outside appointments under the tent right outside our front door. For all appointments, masks will continue to be required.

Through the transition safety of all staff and clients will continue to be our top priority, we look forward to seeing you soon.

The Confrontation Clause

| May 3, 2017 | Uncategorized

It sounds like the name of a bad boxing movie starring Sly Stallone, but it is actually an important part of the constitution that gives all of us the right to know and respond to the evidence against us if we are accused of a crime. Without it, we would be forced to go to trial against secret evidence and unnamed witnesses. With it, the state, with very few exceptions, must have any witnesses against us speak in court where we have the right, generally through our attorney to cross examine them. The state is also required to disclose ahead of time evidence that they will use against us. This may seem like obscure legal theory, but believe me, if you are ever accused of a crime, you will be glad that it exists.
