COVID-19 Update

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and for the safety of our clients and our community, our office has currently shifted to primarily working remotely from our homes. Throughout this pandemic, we will remain open during our normal business hours and will continue to be available to be reached at our office number — (772) 489-4901.

Appointments at our physical office location for consultations and document signings will be available on a very limited basis. These appointments can be scheduled by contacting our office. For the time being, in light of the pandemic, our office intends to keep the total volume of these in-person meetings at low levels. Our clients can be assured that we are practicing social distancing guidelines during any in-person office conference and are taking appropriate steps to sterilize all surfaces of our office before and after any in-person conference.

We are also offering alternative meeting options to our clients, including through teleconferencing and video conferencing (via Zoom or otherwise).

We hope that you stay safe during this difficult time and we look forward to resuming full office operations when appropriate.
