We Are Open – Updated Again!

To our clients, colleagues, referral sources, friends and family:

At this time the Law Office of Jennifer Thaete continues to be open for business – and it would be a stretch to call it “Business as Usual”!!!

Our number one goal is the health and safety of each one of our team members, our clients, and our community.

We are continuing to assist clients with their essential and critical legal needs.

Under the most current version of the Alameda County Public Health Department Orders (dated April 29, 2020) we are deemed an essential business:  “16.f.xxiii. Professional services, such as legal, notary, or accounting services, when necessary to assist in compliance with non-elective, legally required activities or in relation to death or incapacity;”

In terms of our staffing – we are currently continuing to manage the most critical and time sensitive work with two essential team members onsite in addition to myself.  And as you can see from the photos below (please ignore the piles!), all of our work spaces are spread out. We have a relatively large (3000 sq ft) office and with our temporarily reduced team all on site are 6 feet or more away from each other and from any clients who may come in.

We have switched all meetings that can be to phone appointments.  For those that must be in person – primarily signing appointments, we are doing the following: Maximum 2 clients (spouses) at a time in the office, other parties must wait outside the building; Maximum (to date) of 2 in person appointments in a single day – set to allow time to elapse between them; Clients and team members wearing masks; Hand sanitizer and hand wipes available for client use; Team Members frequently washing their hands with soap and water; All areas wiped with disinfecting wipes before and after clients expected; Clients sitting at one end of a 6 foot long conference room table, team members at the other end; The door kept locked to avoid any non-expected parties from entering the space; Clients vetted before their appointment for their health symptoms and possible exposure; and the best part – Clients being given a brand new pen that they get to keep as their party favor!

We know that times of uncertainty can be unnerving and we appreciate that people need help – we are doing all we are capable of to assist our clients in the best way possible – while doing everything we can to maintain the health of our clients, team members, family and friends.

If you have any questions – please don’t hesitate to call our office at 925-447-0134 during normal business hours or contact us online.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding – we look forward to assisting you.
