Corona virus/COVID-19 alert:

We are following the information and advice provided by the CDC, the Virginia Department of Health, the Fairfax County Health Department and other health professionals to avoid unnecessary social contact, and we encourage our colleagues and clients to do the same.   We are therefore restricting most client contact activities for now, and will re-evaluate the situation from time to time based on the best available medical information. 

Everybody in the office remains available by email or telephone (Margaret at maoreilly@maoreilly.com, Matt at mscheeser@maoreilly.com, and Linda at lpowell@maoreilly.com; all of us at 703-787-8173 – leave a message!), and I can be available in the office to meet with clients.  

We will not be making non-critical visits to client homes, assisted living, or skilled nursing facilities, most of which have restricted visits to protect their residents.   If you have completed your estate planning and are ready to sign your documents, please let us know and we can make appropriate arrangements for you to do so within the current health guidelines. If you currently have an appointment, but have any hesitation about keeping your appointment, we understand and want you to do what is best for you.   Please let us know if you would like to reschedule.  We are committed to providing effective legal services to our clients while protecting the health and well-being of all, and appreciate your flexibility during this difficult time.
