In the midst of a pandemic, what was previously known as normal, no longer is. The novel coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has sparked a rise in virtual services and electronic transactions. In response, Hammond Law Firm, PLLC maintains not only the ability to conduct traditional in-person business, but also a full set of virtual tools to serve clients remotely.
In the interest of everyone's personal health and safety, consultations can be conducted over the phone or through Zoom. If meeting in-person is necessary, or if the client prefers it, arrangements can be made accordingly to allow for proper social distancing. The office, including the desk and chairs, will be sanitized between clients, masks will be worn, and a proper distance will be maintained.
Payments can be processed either by credit or debit card directly from invoices or by calling our firm, or by check delivered by mail.
Documents, such as our firm's engagement agreement, contracts, estate planning documents and deeds will be executed by electronic signature and remote notary services to the extent allowed by Texas law. Such legalities will be discussed at the initial consultation as requirements are situation dependent. Documents with personal information will be sent through our secure client portal to protect client information.
We will go to you. If you do not have the ability to sign a will or other document electronically, we can travel to you for execution of the documents, if possible, taking all necessary precautions such as wearing a mask, sanitizing, and staying distanced when possible.
Especially now, it is important that we continue to protect our properties, businesses, and most importantly, our families. We will continue to do our best to accommodate your situation as we navigate these uncertain times.
If there is anything our firm can help you with, please do not hesitate to call us at 903-347-3060.
