A special message to clients and friends from Stephen J. Silverberg, Esq.

By Stephen J. Silverberg
New York Elder Law Attorney

Dear Friends:

We are all worried about the impact of  the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the danger it poses to our community, locally and globally. Here is what our office is doing to ensure the health and safety of our clients and team members.

If you are fine coming to the office, we’d be happy to see you. Know that our office is taking all the prescribed precautions, including frequent hand washing, wiping down surfaces, and using hand sanitizer.

If you are not able to travel to our office during this time, or simply feel safer staying home, we understand. We can still serve you – no need to change your appointment.

We can schedule a phone meeting.  Just let our office know you’d like to change your office meeting to a phone meeting – call us at 516-307-1236 and we’ll make the change.

We are also fully equipped for videoconference appointments. Again, please call our office at 516-307-1236 and we’ll make the necessary arrangements.

In certain cases,  we still make house calls. When circumstances require that document be signed and there’s no other way for you to see us, an attorney will visit you or a loved one within a fifteen mile radius of our office at no extra charge. We don’t this often, but if necessary, we will.

If you are sick, even if you’re feeling just a little under the weather, please call us and we’ll either reschedule or set up a phone or video meeting. We want everyone to stay healthy!

To stay up to date with current news on Coronavirus, we suggest these websites:

Governor of New York State Corona Virus News

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Cleveland Clinic -Preparing for Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Call our office at 516-307-1236 if you have concerns. Helping people is the essence of the firm’s mission and the guiding principle behind everything we do. It’s not just our motto – it’s how we practice law.

We hope you’ll take care of yourself and be well.  Thank you for the trust you place in our firm.
