Important Contact Information
When you call our office
Drop-ins and Hand Deliveries
We are a home-based office so we cannot entertain unscheduled meetings or drop-ins or drop-offs.
For hand deliveries and “drop by and sign” appointments, please call ahead to set up a time.
Contacting us in emergencies
We attend to client case emergencies quickly. If it is after hours, email us all and leave a phone message and call Dawn’s cell, which those anticipating an imminent birth or emergency are given. If you have Dawn’s cell number, please limit its use to emergencies. Messages and texts there don’t get recorded in your electronic file and information can be lost.
It can be difficult to quickly find and hire an attorney with time available to immediately manage a legal emergency. When a prospective client’s case arrives in an emergency status in our office, whether we can take the case depends on the workload in the office at that moment. If we don’t have time to do a good job on your case, without compromising other clients’ cases, we won’t take your case. If you are not already a client and have a serious legal emergency, certainly, call us. We may be able to help. But, also call other attorneys to increase your chances of finding one in time to provide you with meaningful assistance.
