Over the past couple of months, our top priorities have been to take care of your legal needs, while focusing on the health and safety of all our clients and employees.  Many of you have been to see us from your cars in our parking lot, in person at the large building conference room under a variety of conditions, and welcomed us into your homes via Zoom calls or in person signings.  We thank you for your understanding, sense of humor and support!

Over the next few weeks, we will begin opening our office to our clients.  We remain open Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm.  However, we will only schedule client meetings in our Lakewood/Golden office Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00am to 5:00pm and in Longmont on alternating Mondays from 9:00am to 4:00pm every other Monday beginning June 1, 2020.  There are, however, a few exceptions.  

To ensure the safety of clients and employees within our office, the following steps are being taken:

--We will continue to follow enhanced cleaning procedures, in line with the CDC's recommendations.

--We will continue to enforce social distancing requirements, ensuring all individuals can remain six feet apart.  This means the number of clients in the office at one time will be monitored and limited, if needed.

--Employees who interact with customers will wear face masks that cover their nose and mouth.

--We recommend vulnerable and at-risk individuals call ahead before visiting our office.  This allows us to discuss remote services and any requested accommodations in advance.

We will continue to adjust policies and best practices as needed throughout the coming weeks.

Following are several articles that I found of interest; I hope you do as well.  Please feel free to share an article or two or the entire newsletter with family and friends.
