Client Meetings and Staff Changes
Variants in Covid-19 continue to keep us all on our toes. We are, however, meeting with some clients in person, but using only the large conference room and taking other precautions. We also continue to use telephone conferences or Zoom meetings. Our staff have been vaccinated and most all of our clients have been too. When you call for an appointment we can discuss how best to proceed, in ways that are comfortable for everyone. We continue to evolve and change too with some growth and the challenges related to a changing legal landscape.
We have looking for a new legal assistant to help in our offices, and attorney Michelle Goetz will be off several weeks in late March and early April for maternity leave.

“When I needed him, Brad was there. . . Every time. . . He has much patience, perseverance, is not pushy, but yet with his expertise, knowledge and research, knows how to write or say what is needed to get results! He went out of his way to get me out of a big bind I was put in. Thank you :- )” Michael Hicks Hicks Agency (Insurance) 428 W. Lenawee St. Lansing MI
“Brad was extremely thorough when explaining, and also open-minded to my suggestions and concerns. He seems to understand life thru many perspectives; I believe we got along great considering the age gap between us. It could be education, it could be his ability to relate”
