COVID-19 and Legal Services

We hope you are safe and well. Those who have experienced personal loss from the tornado or pandemic are in our thoughts and prayers. Those who have relieved the suffering of others in their distress, thank you for your kindness and generosity.
As this newsletter is heading to publication, Metro Health Department has issued a Safer at Home Order directing all Davidson County residents to stay inside their homes from March 23-April 5 except to take care of essential needs and obtain or provide essential services. Legal services are among those deemed “essential services businesses” which will remain open. The Safer at Home Order may be extended as needed.
Our office is in Williamson County. Franklin and Brentwood have declared a state of emergency, restricting group meetings and limiting restaurants to take-out orders. Many businesses are voluntarily closing or going to a “work from home” protocol.
We plan to keep our office open for the duration of the local travel and proximity restrictions. We are here for you. What “open for business” will look like may change as circumstances change. At present our team is safe and symptom-free. We are following CDC guidelines, washing our hands, social distancing, disinfecting surfaces regularly, etc. We are meeting in person with clients to sign documents and perform other tasks that require physical presence. We are conducting many client meetings by phone. All team members are able to work remotely from home via our cloud-based platform. We are accessible by phone, email, or postal mail as usual. Please contact us when you are ready. Please do not come to our office if you are sick or have had recent contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19.
