Because of high demand for Estate Planning, we are prioritizing intake appointments for front line health care workers and first responders. Unfortunately that means that others may need to wait a few weeks for their initial intake appointment for Estate Planning. For initial consultations and regular client appointments we are continuing to see clients only by telephone, FaceTime and Zoom. We do offer very limited in person appointments for folks unable to manage consultations remotely but we try to schedule those outside whenever possible and masks are required for any indoor meetings.
The Court remains open for telephonic hearings and filing by mail and electronically. Phinney Estate Law continues our work on probates providing support to estate executors and administrators. We know this is a stressful time for everyone, but particularly those who have recently lost loved ones. The fact that so many government services are delayed or only operating remotely has also made this process more complex for people to navigate without help. We are honored to help guide our clients through the probate process with the Court and make the process of wrapping up an estate a little easier. Phinney Estate Law offers a free half hour consultation on the probate process as well by phone, Zoom or FaceTime.
Sometimes in the legal process in person signings are necessary. Our office is taking every precaution to keep ourselves and our clients healthy and well including mandatory masking and social distancing. For documents that only need to be notarized, not witnessed our office can arrange remote notary services for small fee. Folks wanting this extra level of protection should let us know so we can let you know if this would be possible for your case.
If you’re interested in a free half hour consultation with Phinney Estate Law on estate planning or probate call 206-459-1908. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
