Corona virus/COVID-19 alert:

Due to Governor Northam’s new modified stay-at-home order, beginning December 14, 2020, we will begin requesting appointments be held remotely via Zoom when possible to reduce the number of in-person interactions in the office.  We will, however, continue to schedule in-person appointments if alternate methods are not possible.  In-person visits to assisted living or skilled nursing facilities will be done in accordance with each facility’s policies with respect to the protection of their residents.  We continue to make home visits when appropriate.

Despite these changes, our office is still open during our regular business hours (9am-5pm, M-F) with recommended precautions to protect the health and safety of our staff and our clients.   We have disposable masks available in the office, and will ask you to wear one of these if you have not brought your own for in-person appointments.  Acrylic partitions have been added to the reception desk and the conference room.  Contact surfaces are cleaned and disinfected before and after each client appointment, and handwashing is available and encouraged. 

If you have experienced any symptoms, please request a remote consultation.  If you are immunocompromised or otherwise at high risk, or have other health-related concerns, please request a remote consultation. 

We are committed to continue providing effective legal services to our clients while protecting the health and well-being of all, and appreciate your cooperation as we navigate these sometimes troubled waters.

We have seen during these difficult times how important it can be to have appropriate medical directives and powers of attorney in place.  Your Last Will and Testament or Trust Agreement can avoid unnecessary burdens, confusion, and misunderstandings among your heirs.  Please call us to create or update your estate planning.  We are here to help.
