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.

It can happen here

| Oct 7, 2019 | Uncategorized

That was the title of a book written in the 1930s about a Nazi style takeover in this country. People assumed that something like that could never happen here, and it did.

Most of us who have lead fairly sheltered lives take certain things for granted, the rule of law, government that we may not like, but that does not prosecute us for made up crimes because they do not like us, the right to speak our minds without getting in trouble for it.
Unfortunately, we cannot take those things for granted. If we are not vigilant, the rule of law, and the basic freedom to criticize our leaders without fear of being punnished can go away. That has happened in a small city in Northern Minnesota, Crosby. The former mayor spoke out against the leadership of the police department. To silence him, the department leaders arrested him for bogus charges, and had him prosecuted for over two years. He was acquitted of all charges, but the individuals responsible have so far not suffered any consequences. Other citizens in Crosby have also been punnished for speaking out, while those who supported the department leadership were not punnished when they commmitted crimes.
No matter what our political views are, we all need to support the right of citizens to criticize their government and speak out. If we do not do that, it can and will happen here.
