Our offices have reopened; however, we are still limiting in office appointments when possible for the health and safety of our valued clients. If you do have an in person appointment scheduled, please note that facemasks are required. We also kindly ask that you notify us in advance if you are experiencing any COVID symptoms or have had exposure to anyone who may be infected with COVID or have tested positive for COVID in the past 14 days, so that we can arrange for a telephone or other electronic meeting instead of an in-person appointment. Thank you for your courtesies during this difficult time.
