Fear Not: Payne & Fears Is Here For You During the Coronavirus

A Message to Our Clients:

We want you to know that our attorneys are here for you. We are staying on top of every change and offering guidance along the way.

Our longtime clients know that we pride ourselves on responding rapidly and effectively to our clients’ needs. Now is no different. If anything, this crisis has increased our level of client service as we focus on your evolving needs.

We want you to know that we are available to you by our regular e-mail and our office telephone numbers and that we will remain available to you, including by our cell phones, even in the midst of various shutdown or “shelter in place” orders.

Our firm established a business continuity plan long ago to allow our attorneys to seamlessly serve our clients from remote locations in the event of an emergency. We are ready and willing to provide the excellent service you have come to expect from us throughout this crisis.

For clients who would like to see our attorneys, but are unable to come to our office, we use videoconferencing software that provides an easy way to communicate face to face while respecting social distancing. Want to use FaceTime? We can do that, too! We are flexible and nimble and will do what it takes to make our clients feel comfortable.

In compliance with the government shutdown in Northern California, our San Francisco office is closed, but our attorneys are available as usual.

In the meantime, we have written some articles to provide resources and guidance that many of our clients already have found helpful. The links are included at the bottom of this message.

We know things are tough right now, but we will continue to plow through in an effort to get our clients the answers they need as quickly as possible and provide some peace of mind in these tumultuous times.
