ALERT: Our number one priority is the health and safety of our employees, clients, and our communities. Therefore, consistent with directives from state and local governments, both of our offices remain open during the COVID-19 outbreak because we can practice social distancing within our building. We can meet most of the needs of our clients via email and telephone. We will schedule in-person meetings if necessary and if the client is symptom-free and has not traveled to a high-infection area. As much as possible, our services to our clients will be uninterrupted. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
