Office Update - We're working virtually as much as possible. The signing of Wills requires that witnesses and notary be in the same room and many people are concerned with getting things in order at the moment (wills, powers of attorney for finances and health care, health care directives), so we are open for business for the time being. If you need to get your planning started, we will conduct the initial meeting by phone or web conference/chat in order to talk about options, advice, and preferences.
However, we will keep as much physical distance between individuals as possible (4 feet minimum) and no physical contact (handshakes or hugs - yes, I regularly hug my clients under normal circumstances). Luckily our office is low-traffic, so we have less exposure than many. We are not accepting drop-in clients and all final documents will be mailed to clients and not held for personal pick up.
We are also keeping an eye on the court status for our probate clients with cases that require court filings, especially to open probates to gain access to estate assets. Many courts are closing or restricting access.
As expected, everything is subject to change.
