Communications & Meetings
Most of our work is done by telephone and email. Face-to-face meetings are helpful, especially at the beginning of a project, so that we can get to know each other well. A solid relationship is very important to establish trust and mutual understanding through a project that can be complex, stressful and highly personal.
Certain kinds of documents can be signed in an informal manner, by emailing copies of signed pages. Some require the formalities of exchanging original notarized documents. And other documents, such as wills, have the highest level of formality, requiring that you come to the office in person to sign in the presence of witnesses.
We usually have client meetings on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with appointments beginning between 11am and 5pm. You can schedule your own appointments here.
We are happy to talk to you on the telephone, though of course our availability is limited by our other activities. Email is often the most efficient manner of communication. The best practice is to address your message both to Ron and to whichever of the associates is working on your matter. We will get back to you as soon as we reasonably can.
We specifically discourage communication by text message or anything less formal than email. Careful expression and complete sentences are crucial in this kind of work. Even if we receive or respond to your text message, we specifically disclaim responsibility for communications in this manner.
