==========================COVID-19 UPDATE==========================

Message from Delain Law Office, PLLC regarding the COVID-19 Outbreak

We sincerely hope that each and every person who sees this web page is doing whatever they can do to stay safe. Please be assured that Delain Law Office, PLLC is here for you during this time. We are working remotely, but are very much open for business. Our phones are available to you during our normal business hours, which run from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays except Thursdays (as ever, 10-5) and Fridays (as ever, closed)). Our conversations may be via electronic means rather than face to face, but that changes nothing in terms of availability.

Our hours and services have not changed; our means of contact with you has. We will follow, for your safety and ours, the guidelines issued by the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control, the federal and state governments regarding contact with people; at this time (23 March 2020), those guidelines tell us NOT to meet in person with anyone. Fine. We’ll meet by phone, we’ll meet by conference call, we’ll meet by Zoom, we’ll meet by Google Duo, we’ll meet by Skype, we’ll meet by WhatsApp, we’ll meet by your choice of remote meeting technology. But we will meet with you, and your legal work will get done as usual.

UPDATE 7/14/2020: COVID19 is still with us. Despite the fact that New York is reopening, Delain Law Office will remain a virtual law practice as much as possible. Although we are starting to meet with clients in person again (gloves and masks that cover both your nose and mouth at all times are REQUIRED on both sides of the table), we encourage you to meet with us virtually.

Nancy Baum Delain, Esq. (owner, Delain Law Office, PLLC)
