As such, public access to the firm remains restricted to minimize person-to-person interaction. 


We continue to work on your matters and will arrange an in-person meeting only on an emergent basis to execute documents.  All other business will be conducted via telephone and email. No walk-ins will be admitted to the office.  


Please contact the office by phone or email so that we can respond to your questions and address your concerns.
