All of us at Legal Strategies understand the seriousness of the Corona virus. We want you to stay healthy. And we want to be healthy when we can see you again face to face. So, we will be honoring the Governor’s mandate to shelter in place.
However, we also know that your legal work is important and can be time-sensitive. We understand that not being able to get answers can add even more stress to these trying times. In fact, the virus precautions may have created more legal questions for you, such as how to handle financial affairs for your parents if you can’t visit them, how to get signatures on real estate documents, etc.
We want to try to balance the need for social distancing with your need for answers to your legal questions. So, even though I will be working from home, I will be monitoring my email inbox and my voice messages. I can also be available for phone conferences or on-line meetings if you need me.
The probate courts are closed. They are not holding any hearings at this time. They are only handling “emergencies” such as petitions involving mental health commitments or life-threatening medical emergencies. Even if you don’t have an “emergency”, as the Court might define that, I am still here to talk about what issues you are facing. And we can still prepare paperwork and have it ready for you to sign or to go to the probate court on the first day that is possible.
If you have a legal issue that cannot wait, please call my office at (586) 783-8350, or better yet, email me at [email protected], and we will get through this together.
