As you are probably all aware, Governor DeWine has issued a "stay at home order" essentially asking all non-essential businesses to close for a period of two weeks' time. My office has been mobile for several years now and I am able to conduct your initial appointment by telephone or video call. I can draft and file your bankruptcy case and otherwise represent your interests without being in an office or leaving my home. As always, I can be reached by telephone, email or text anytime. Stay safe and stay home everyone.
