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 continue to work exclusively 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.

We do not meet clients in person at this time; we are more than happy to meet you on a Zoom call, though. Visit the Appointments page of this website for the links to my calendar.

Breaking News

1 June 2021: Our logo is now a registered mark, together with our tagline. We are still meeting via Zoom or by telephone; I got very, very spoiled during the pandemic and will unwillingly, if at all, come out of Zoom/phone/remote meeting mode, since that mode has proved so efficient for my law practice. When we meet on Zoom, you will undoubtedly meet one of the office cats: Jazzy, Gus, Motley, Furby, Linus, Lucy, Scalia and/or Ginsburg; especially Linus and Gus MUST appear on every Zoom meeting I have.
