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.

“The right to remain silent” and why it matters

| Mar 30, 2021 | Criminal Defense, Firm News

It is one of the most widely known constitutional amendments, the 5th, the right to not incriminate yourself. Almost everyone has at least a basic understand of it, from TV if nothing else. Despite knowing about it, most people do not use it when they need to. I cannot tell you how often I have seen people dig a deeper hole for themself by talking, often at a time when they are confused or upset. When the police ask you about a serious situation, close your mouth until you talk to a lawyer. That is exactly what police officers themselves do when they are accused of excessive use of force on the job, or other potentially criminal activity. You would be smart to do what they do, clam up until you can talk to your lawyer and figure out what is going on, and how best to respond.
