Important Announcement from Van Winkle Legal

Clients and Friends of Van Winkle Legal,

Your safety, and the safety of the lawyers and staff of Van Winkle Legal, are our highest priority. To continue delivering high quality legal services to our clients, we closed our physical office until further notice in hopes of minimizing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our lawyers will be telecommuting and they are ready and able to meet with you by videoconference using either Zoom, FaceTime, or phone. We are also able to conduct remote execution of estate planning documents to meet our clients’ needs. Our normal business hours will remain in effect. Thank you for your patience as we navigate through these highly unusual circumstances.
