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.

You Need It Done Now?

The court system has many strengths, fast action is not one of them. Court rules require notice, usually weeks in advance to everyone involved in a case. Clients often ask me if I can just ‘call the judge’ to get them what they want. That is almost never allowed.

In rare cases we can get fast action, the legal term is Ex Parte Relief. To do that we need to show the judge that there is an emergency, and that if an order is not granted immediately, without notice to the other side or a hearing, a child, or someone else will be seriously harmed. This is a high standard, much more than just my client will be a better parent, or they do not like what is going on at the other house.

Your best option, try to avoid getting in a situation where you need the Court do it now, and, if you are in that situation, I need solid evidence from you to show the judge that there is an emergency.
