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.

The weather is warming up and outdoor-in person appointments are now available. The updated CDC guidelines indicate that masks are not needed for vaccinated people outside if not in close quarters; although as a precaution we will continue to practice social distancing. If you have not had your vaccination, masks will continue to be a requirement.

Through the transition safety of all staff and clients will continue to be our top priority, we look forward to seeing you soon.

SOME EVICTIONS ARE NOW ALLOWED

| Aug 21, 2020 | Firm News

Contrary to popular belief, the eviction moratorium does not mean that no evictions can happen.  From the beginning, evictions have been allowed for drug use/sales, and other illegal activity.  Over the last few months the moratorium has been loosened to allow evictions due to the tenant harming or threatening others, or, causing serious damage to property.  Landlords can also remove tenants if the landlord wants to move into the property.

If you are a tenant, do not assume that you can never be evicted, if you or your guests do certain things you can be.  If you are a landlord, you still cannot evict for just unpaid rent, but you can for illegal and destructive behavior.

Landlords and tenants have a common interest in keeping properties in good repair, preventing illegal and anti-social behavior, and working together.  IF they do that, no one will need to be evicted.
