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.

The Silver Lining

| Nov 9, 2020 | Firm News

The old saying goes every cloud has a silver lining.  The pandemic has been a huge cloud on all of us, almost a quarter million deaths in this country, hundreds of thousands more seriously ill, sometimes for weeks, businesses and schools closed, jobs lost, family routines disrupted.  In the legal business, in person client meetings are very difficult and risky, cases have been delayed.

The silver lining, courts have moved ahead with the use of technology to conduct business, routine hearings, and many trials are being handled by video, saving clients money in legal fees, and reducing the disruption of having to appear in court, instead of spending a day travelling to and waiting at a courthouse, clients sign on for their hearing, and as soon as it is over get back to their jobs or families.  My clients are also happy that they do not have to pay me to travel to courthouses and often wait there.  I would not wish this pandemic on anyone, the damage is far greater than any benefit, but, we have to take the good where we can find it.
