Elder, Estate Planning, & Special Needs Law News 



Each year during the holiday season, our thoughts turn gratefully to our clients, friends, and colleagues for the trust that you have placed in us over the years.  This year we are particularly grateful for, and appreciative of, the understanding, patience, and kindnesses that have been extended to us throughout 2020.  As a community, we have come together to support one another throughout a year of unprecedented challenges.  We have found new ways to connect, meet, and work together.  The resilience of our clients, staff, friends, and colleagues is inspiring.

We are also mindful of those who have experienced the harsh impact of the pandemic and COVID-19.  Many individuals and families have experienced heart breaking and profound losses.  To those, we offer our deepest sympathy.  Please know that we are keeping each of you in our hearts and in our thoughts. 

Again, in the spirit of gratitude and appreciation, we say thank you.  Our very best wishes to all for joy and peace throughout the holidays, and for a New Year that is filled with hope and good health!
