Due to the COVID-19 virus, we are changing some operations to enhance employee and client safety. In particular, we are following the guidelines set out by the Federal, State and local governments.
We are transitioning much of our practice to working remotely. For now, our physical office location will be open by appointment only and will be minimally staffed. Our lawyers and legal assistants will work with you and each other by phone and email when not physically present in the office.
We hope your phone calls to us will continue to be answered by a real person, but if you reach our voice mail system, you may leave us a detailed message by dialing the following extensions:
As an alternative, you may send an email to your lawyer (or other professional) and ask them to call you (and please briefly state the purpose of the call). We will be checking and responding to voice messages and emails on a regular basis. Although telephone and email communications are preferred, we can meet with you in our office if absolutely necessary (for example, for Will signings).
If you want to send us information, please e-mail or mail it to us by U.S. Mail – as we are no longer receiving mail by Fed Ex or UPS at our office. Also, you may deliver items to our office or pick up items from our office by appointment (we can even meet you at your car if you arrange this in advance).
Tax Deadlines. The Internal Revenue Service and many states have postponed the tax filing and payment deadlines to July 15, 2020. Some states still require returns to be filed and or first quarter estimated tax payments to be made on or before April 15, 2020. We intend to continue working to timely prepare your returns during these unprecedented times. However, we know that some client returns that are normally completed on or before April 15th will be delayed. If your returns are affected, we will contact you to discuss with you how we intend to proceed.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation. Thank you.
