ElderLaw News 

April 2020


The impact that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on our communities continues to rapidly evolve.  As scientists learn more and more about the virus, the recommendations and guidance for the steps that we can take to minimize the spread of the virus and to protect the most vulnerable among us, likewise, continues to evolve.  What has not changed, however, is the unwavering commitment of our law firm to continue to provide high-quality legal services, in the safest manner possible to minimize health risks to our staff, our clients, and our communities, and to help reduce the spread of the virus.  As such, for the foreseeable future, we will continue to conduct all meetings (not requiring documents to be signed), via telephone or other available video technology. Again, during these uncertain times, our attorneys remain available for consultations, as noted herein, and our staff may be reached either via e-mail or telephone.  We thank you for your support, understanding, and patience, as we make every effort to support our clients, staff, and our communities, during this unprecedented circumstance.
