At the Law Offices of Mark Little, we are doing everything we can to comply with public health recommendations and keep our community safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
Although the virus has not yet arrived in Hopkins County, we have taken the initiative to implement the following measures in our office:
- Disinfecting surfaces with Clorox wipes every evening
- Requiring all employees to wash their hands several times per day
- Providing every employee and visitor with hand sanitizer
- Allowing and encouraging employees to self-quarantine and work from home
When the virus enters Hopkins County and/or surrounding areas, we will use scanning thermometers (similar to those used by airlines and healthcare workers) to administer temperature checks for everyone entering the lobby. Our lobby’s double-door entry will effectively prevent contamination of the lobby itself. When people enter or leave, we will disinfect all doors and doorknobs.
Will The Law Offices of Mark Little Close?
We plan to remain physically open until it is no longer safe to do so. We understand how critical your legal matter may be, and we do not intend to cease operations, even if we must end in-person meetings. As such, we are now using the videoconferencing app ZOOM for consultations and other services, and we will continue to communicate with our clients via phone, email, and text.
A Note About Bankruptcy Petitions
If you are filing bankruptcy, you are legally required to physically sign your bankruptcy petition. For public health and safety, however, the Court has ordered a temporary change in the way you sign your petition, and we will discuss this during your consultation. If you need to complete this process as soon as possible (i.e. if you are facing foreclosure or garnishment), we will determine which way works best for you without risking the health and safety of you, our office, and your community.
Many local and state governments are freezing actions such as eviction and utility cutoffs. Due to the unprecedented nature of this virus, you may experience greater leniency with deadlines and payment due dates. We can work with you to develop a strategy that protects your financial future as well as our public health.
If you would prefer to virtually meet with our team as soon as possible, get in touch with us by calling (888) 392-0409 or filling out our online contact form. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our firm—we are here for you during this crisis.
