COVID-19 UPDATE

Many COVID-19 restrictions around the state have been lifted and our courts are working towards getting back to a normal schedule. We continue to take all precautions to keep everyone with whom we interact safe, so as to minimize the risk of a continued increase in cases in our area. Our office is available for in-person appointments, but we are still offering virtual and telephone consultations, appointments, mediations, and many types of court hearings for your convenience. We are here to serve you and we will work with you in whatever way you feel most comfortable!
