Brackney Law Office, PLLC is closely monitoring the recommendations of local, state, and federal authorities in responding to COVID-19. Our office remains open for appointments, although we strongly prefer scheduling digital appointments for the safety of everyone. See the “Digital Meeting Tools” section below for details on preparing for a digital meeting.
In addition to routine cleaning, we are taking extra steps to sterilize hard surfaces between appointments. Elbow bumps replaced handshakes, but now we don’t even do that for the sake of social distancing.
If you have been sick within the past 24 hours, you should not physically enter Brackney Law Office. We also request that if you are arriving in person, that you wash your hands upon arrival.
Please reschedule your appointment (or plan to meet digitally – see below) if you have felt sick in the previous 24 hours or if you have been exposed within the past 14 days to individuals who may have COVID-19. Contact Brackney Law Office at (859) 559-4648 or email your attorney to make adjustments as necessary.
We always prefer an “old fashioned” face-to-face, but most appointments can be conducted digitally (either over the phone or using video conferencing – see Digital Tools below).
Digital Meeting Tools
To the extent possible, Brackney Law Office is attempting to schedule all client meetings to be conducted via video technology. Documents should be provided in advance in PDF format. Appointments will be held via video conferencing. Tools to assist you with these are below.
- Video Conferencing. We use Zoom.us which is a free video conferencing technology (you’ll need to download the app to your phone. If you plan to utilize this technology, it’s best to set up a free account in advance of our meeting.
- PDF Creator. Whether it is a completed fact-finder or your original documents, it’s important that you can share documents with me prior to our meeting. Apple Notes has a new feature that allows those with an iPhone to scan documents (if you don’t already have a scanner). Click here for instructions. NOTE: Please reduce file size as much as possible by reducing resolution and/or selecting black/white vs. color.
Certain meetings, like will signings, cannot be conducted digitally. We are establishing office protocols to conduct these appointments with the principles of social distancing in mind.
