COVID-19 CONFERENCE ROOM IS OPEN
TO SERVE YOUR LEGAL NEEDS SAFELY
The Law Office of James C. Siebert & Associates, P.C. / Elder Law & Estate Planning Attorneys of Illinois, P.C. (“Office”) in an effort to protect the safety of its Clients and Visitors, as well as staff, modified the office layout to create a separate COVID-19 Conference Room. The COVID-19 Conference Room allows Clients and Visitors to meet an Attorney in person while minimizing any risk from COVID-19. The COVID-19 Conference Room is used only for meetings, sanitized both prior to and after each meeting, and is locked off at all other times. The COVID-19 Conference Room is designed to minimize if not eliminate contact between the Client and the staff or anyone else as well as minimize any surface or other contact by the Client when going from their car to the safe space conference room.

The Law Office of James C. Siebert & Associates, PC / Elder Law & Estate Planning Attorneys of Illinois, P.C. is an Essential Business as defined under paragraph 12 (r) of the Executive Order and accordingly will continue to operate during this crisis under certain limitations. Unfortunately, there are certain legal issues which can’t be postponed, whether it be an issue regarding the incapacity of a loved one, obtaining and paying for long term care, handling the death of a loved one, applying for obtaining Medicaid benefits or handling the appeal of a wrongful denial of Medicaid benefits. In order to protect the health and safety of the office’s Clients, potential Clients and their families, as well as the office staff, procedural safeguards have been implemented, including :
Remote Consultation and Meeting Availability. The Office is available to meet for Initial Consultations, as well as ongoing meetings with existing Clients, remotely using Zoom.
Document Execution Carhop Service. In a situation where it is necessary to get the actual “wet ink” signatures on documents, especially when such signature must be done in presence of witnesses, the Office in an effort to limit person-to-person contact and ensure your clients’ health and safety will provide carhop document execution. The Firm will either review the documents ahead of time or at the time of the service but will bring the documents outside to get the necessary signatures while you and your loved ones stay inside your car.
Office Consultations in the COVID-19 conference room. The COVID-19 Conference Room allows Clients and potential Clients to meet with an Attorney face to face knowing that they will have minimal risk of exposure. The COVID-19 Conference Room substantially exceeds the safety standards for this type of business as set forth in the Center for Disease Control’s Interim Guidance for Businesses and Employers to Plan and Respond to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (as updated March 21, 2020) in order that we may continue to safely meet your legal needs, while providing peace of mind to you and our staff.
