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 passing of a legend

| Sep 21, 2020 | Firm News

We were saddened to hear of the loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.  Her passing ends a career that overcame adversity which most of us cannot comprehend in order to become one of the 9 highest ranking judicial officers in the country.  She grew up in the mid 20th century, a time when it was legal to discriminate against Jewish Americans like herself.  Based solely on her religion, she could be kept out of jobs, professional schools, social clubs, neighborhoods.  As if that was not bad enough, she could also be kept out of professional schools, including law school, and denied employment based on her being female, this was all perfectly legal at that time here in the USA.  Despite this dual disadvantage, she persevered, working tirelessly to outlaw discrimination so that others would not have to struggle as she did because they were a certain race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.  While we still have a long way to go, because of the efforts of her, and others like her, it is no longer legal to deny basic rights to Americans because they are in some way different than someone else.  My daughter, who on her favorite Halloween dressed up as Justice Ginsberg in a real courtroom, thanks to help from retired Judge David Ten Eyck, can now talk about doing what her dad does for a living, thanks in large part to the work of Justice Ginsberg.
