ASK LAW Response to COVID-19

We understand that the most important thing in law is our relationships with our clients.  Nothing will change that fundamental foundation that our firm is built on. 

During these difficult times, we encourage everyone to use best practices to reduce the impact of this virus and to protect our elders and the most vulnerable.  Allen Stahl + Kilbourne is trying to do our part to stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) while ensuring that all of your legal needs are met. 

On Friday, Chief Justice Beasley took the unprecedented step of continuing most hearings in the District and Superior Courts for 30 days effective March 16th for 30 days.  The Courthouses will remain open with limited staffing and deadlines in pending cases remain unaffected.  This is not business as usual, but business will proceed.

Allen Stahl + Kilbourne is ready to face the coming challenges along with all of you.  Over the next several weeks, our office on Town Mountain Road will remain open, but with a reduced staff.  We are avoiding large conferences and meetings.  Our attorneys and staff have access to your files and all of the latest tools required to work remotely and communicate with their clients and each other.  Our investments in technology will allow us to maintain these critical relationships in the face of uncertainty. 

  1. Our attorneys and staff will continue to be available through our usual telephone numbers, cell phones numbers, and email addresses.
  1. Your attorney and paralegals can be reached by email, via phone, or via a video conference platform. We use Zoom, Skype, and Facetime and can conference with you at any time, even outside ordinary business hours.
  1. Most documents can be signed electronically using our technology. However, if you need to see us, we can come to you rather than bringing you into the office.  We are willing to make “front porch calls” or “car window meeting” to handle transactions that must be in-person to protect you and to protect our staff.

We will be here to assist you with all of the coming challenges.
