Our highest priority is the health and well-being of our people, our clients and their families. We are closely monitoring the latest advisories from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). As such, we have implemented a contingency plan to serve clients regardless of location.

Our attorneys and staff have the ability to work remotely in a secure environment protecting your sensitive information. Although in-person meetings often are valuable and the most efficient means of communication, we thank you in advance for your understanding and support of our temporary preference for telephonic and video-conferenced meetings. We have a variety of methods for virtual client meetings from video conferencing to client portals to securely share information and discuss important topics.
