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.

It Pays To Be Nice

I get calls from people wanting me to be nasty and rude in handling their cases. Some people think that good lawyering means acting like a jerk. Some of those ideas come from TV, some seem to come from the general rudeness which seems to pass for public political discourse for some people in this country. Contrary to what they see on TV, and the temporary success of certain politicians, being a jerk does not help your case, as a leader or lawyer. Judges and juries, like most of the rest of us, do not like rude, mean people.

When people ask me to be a jerk for them, I tell them that I do not act like a jerk for anyone, including myself, and, even if I did, it would not help their case.
