25 Mar Office Closed, But Open for Business
While we believe that our office qualifies to remain open under the Harris County Stay At Home Order issued March 24, 2020 because we provide legal services to many Essential Businesses, we have elected to allow our attorneys to work from home and only go into the office when they must to effectuate legal services for a qualified Essential Business, and when they can do so under their county of residence local stay at home, or similar, order.
We are, however, open for business for our clients and others needing legal services.
- Our lawyers are maintaining regular business hours at home 8:30am to 5:30pm and are reachable via email, telephone, text, or video chat.
- We have several conference lines available to conduct conference calls for our clients, many of whom are also working from home.
- We are continuing to draft and sign estate planning documents including wills, trusts, medical directives, etc. In necessary circumstances these document signings can be completed using “driveway” witnessed wills (the signing is conducted in the driveway so people can maintain social distancing but the event can be witnessed and/or notarized as required by law) or in even more conservative situations, creative solutions using trusts and other legal vehicles are available to ensure that your legacy is assured and your family is protected.
- We are staying on top of developing rules and regulations to assess the potential impacts to our clients and provide continued support during this fluid time.
- We are posting regular updates via LinkedIn. You can follow us on our Rapp & Krock, PC LinkedIn page.
