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.

Please see our blog for more info on pandemic response.

BANKRUPTCY COMES BACK

| Feb 16, 2021 | Firm News

For years since the last recession bankruptcy filings have declined. The decline has continued despite the horrendous job loses and financial stresses faced by huge numbers in the last year. Filings have likely been kept down by government assistance programs that have kept people afloat by literally giving everyone in the middle class or below thousands of dollars.ban
Eviction and foreclosure moratoriums have also taken away one of the major reasons for bankruptcy, the need to keep ones home.
The moratoriums and cash payments help, but can only do so much, and they will end soon. Bankruptcy filings will rise for the first time in 10 years, and, for those planning on filing, there are some pandemic related bankruptcy law changes put in place last year. The good news, the vast majority of filers keep all of their property and get rid of all of their debt. If the last year has hit you hard, bankruptcy could be the way to get a new start.
