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 downside of social media

| May 31, 2019 | Uncategorized

Almost everyone these days is on some type of social media, Facebook and similar sites. Social media can be great for keeping everyone up to date, sharing news about your family, trips, etc. But, it also has some pretty serious downsides. 

I have seen many people sharing things on the internet that should probably be kept to themselves. This can be a real problem when you get into a legal dispute. They used to call the internet the World Wide Web. The term is still accurate, what you post on line is available world wide, to everyone. I was cross examing the opposing party once, using pictures she had posted on Facebook. She asked me how I got them, I just said ‘World Wide Web’. I think she did not realize that what you put on the internet can be seen by everyone. If you are in any type of legal dispute, do not post anything, or send any message that you would not want the judge to read. The picture of you slamming a bubba mug full of Keystone Lite, or dancing at a bar with some of your clothes off, or the nasty text message where you tell your ex what you really think about their new significant other is probably not going to help your custody case. The old saying the less said the better is more true than ever.
