As professionals, it is of paramount importance to use that we remain available to serve our clients while acting in the best interest of the public. Our offices remain open. However, we have taken steps to limit the number of attorneys, staff, and guests who will be physically present in the offices of the firm. As a general rule, attorneys and staff will work remotely from home and will not be holding in-person meetings in our offices. Our goal is to use social distancing to maintain safety while continuing to serve our clients. We have been preparing for this day for some time. Thanks to our amazing people, we expect to be able to provide the same level of service as before.


You can still reach your attorney or paralegal by phone, email, or videoconference. If there is a need to meet in person, we will do our best to make that happen in a way that complies with the best guidance on public health. While our immediate concern is the health and safety of our people, our clients, and the public, we have been helping clients deal with the disruption that COVID-19 is causing to their lives and businesses. That will continue to be a focus of Cline Williams as we move through these difficult days together. We know many of you are dealing with these challenges in your own organizations as well as at home. As always, we deeply value your trust, friendship and support. You can be certain that we are here to support you, your families, and our community. Stay safe, and if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let us know.
