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.

Please see our blog for more info on pandemic response.

All In The Family

| Oct 6, 2020 | Firm News

A great TV show back in the day, remembered by those of us with a few years under our belts.  The term family also comes up now in housing law.  Minnesota has a moratorium on all residential evictions.  Recently, an exception was made to the moratorium which allows a landlord to remove a tenant, by eviction if needed, to allow a family member of the landlord to move in.  The rub, what is a family member?, the term is not defined in the law.  Most dictionaries seem to define a family member as any relative, not just someone in your immediate family.  Unlike laws passed by the legislature and signed by the governor, which have alot of history behind them, and have often been considered by courts in the past, recent executive orders have virtually no history behind them.

If you are a landlord, or tenant involved in an eviction where family of the landlord is looking to move in, you could be making legal history.
