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

As you are all aware, we are currently facing unique challenges due to the Coronavirus. While this is a serious crisis, it is important to keep it in perspective, and not allow it to prevent us from going about our business. We want to assure all of our clients that this office is prepared to serve your needs, regardless of what happens and how the virus affects Minnesota. In an effort to keep the office safe, we have stepped up prevention and sanitation measures in hopes to prevent disease transmission.

Because we are a paperless office, our entire staff is prepared to work from home if necessary. No matter what happens, we will continue to provide our clients with the highest quality legal services. For any clients who are not comfortable leaving their homes, we can handle any appointments remotely via phone, FaceTime, Skype, Zoom , and can transfer any documents to you electronically or by mail, if that is your preference.

Please rest assured, we will continue to take care of your legal needs in this challenging time, and your safety is our highest priority.

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.
