Dear Clients and Friends,
As you may imagine, given our line of work, our client’s health and safety is our top priority.
You have no doubt been hearing about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) which has been officially declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. Many cases have now been confirmed in Massachusetts and Governor Charlie Baker has declared a state of emergency.
We understand that this virus has put many of our clients in a difficult situation, especially those who are older or have older loved ones at home.
Here are the preventative measures we are taking to keep our office environment as clean as possible, and to allow us to keep our clients and our staff safe while continuing to conduct business:
– We will practice social distancing, which includes the elimination of hand shaking.
– We wipe down all door handles, chairs, and conference tables after every meeting and have hand sanitizers and tissues available in every conference room.
– We will shortly have the ability to conduct meetings via video conference for anyone who wishes to do so. As always, if you would like to speak by phone, we are available to do so.
– We will postpone our upcoming Smart Counsel event scheduled for March 19, 2020, to be rescheduled at a later date.
If you have questions or concerns about an upcoming meeting at the office in Dedham, please call us to discuss other options for your meeting.
We will also take this opportunity to remind you to make sure your health care and other estate planning documents are in place and updated to reflect your current wishes. If you would like to schedule a meeting, phone call, or video conference to discuss your estate plan, please be in touch with Jennifer Poles at 781-461-1020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our office is currently open and will remain open as we closely monitor the situation in Dedham and the surrounding communities. We will keep you updated if anything changes. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
