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.

Please see our blog for more info on pandemic response.

Jumping To Conclusions

| Sep 14, 2017 | Uncategorized

We have all seen the lurid headlines and pictures, mug shots of people in jail jumpsuits, accusations of heinous crimes. It is easy to assume that anyone accused of such bad things must be guilty. But, it is easy to accuse, all a criminal charge means is that a prosecutor believes someone is guilty of a crime. No judge has made any decision, and no impartial party has looked at the evidence. Prosecutors, being human, can be wrong, and can be subject to political pressure to make accusations against someone. There are many examples of big headlines when someone is charged with a crime, and little or no attention when the charges are dismissed or they are found not guilty. We owe it to our fellow citizens to not judge unless we have seen all the evidence and understand all the sides of a case. The next person in the jumpsuit could be you.
