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.

DOMESTIC ABUSE AND THE SHUTDOWN

| Apr 7, 2020 | Firm News

It is unfortunate, but, perhaps not surprising that having people home more than ever, sheltering in place has caused a spike in domestic abuse cases. Being in constant contact, combined with financial and child care pressures is bound to increase conflict. Courts are continuing to handle domestic abuse cases, if you file for an Order for Protection or Harassment Restraining Order you will get a hearing very soon. If someone has filed for an order against you you will need to go to court. If you are a victim of abuse, or accused of abuse, it is important to respond quickly and get good advice. Whether we are in a national emergency or not, restraining orders are serious business, they can determine who stays in a house and who has custody of children.
