9/21/2020 We are Open for Business

As we emerge from the lockdown period many people are still staying home, avoiding public spaces and maintaining social distancing. Yet, as part of their reaction to this pandemic many people also are realizing that they need to update their estate plans and health care documents: Medical Power of Attorney; HIPAA authorization; and Living Will. However, they don't want to go out in public or take the chance of a face to face office visit.

Here at Cumberland Legacy Law we are fully capable of consulting via phone or online conferencing. In fact, we operate our law firm electronically as a matter of normal business. We have clients in several states we still serve, such as California, Alaska and Arizona so dealing electronically is nothing new for us.

Of course, we can meet in person, if that is your preference. Call or email us to schedule your teleconference or online conference.
