The Malloy Firm is still up and running throughout this episode. While we are minimizing in person contacts, from Day 1, I designed this practice to be Cloud-based and to permit our team to work from anywhere in the world. Our phones are ringing and being answered, our paralegals are available to prepare documents and take dictation, and I am advising clients by phone, email, and video conference, and messaging folks through our encrypted client portal. We can handle electronic documents and signatures, payments, contracts, and loans. We can record mortgages and host a board meeting.

We’re still creating business entities, documenting transactions, and helping our clients make the best of this situation. While a little help from the Maine legislature on e-notarization and remote public meetings would be in helpful, I’m optimistic we’ll make the best of this and will come out stronger. For my friends who aren’t so lucky to have a job they can do from anywhere, such as those who serve food, cut hair, and care for the sick – we will do all that we can to help you. I know lots of local banks are making extraordinary lending opportunities available to help with cash crunches. In addition, if you work in one of those fields and would like to schedule a free half hour consultation to discuss a legal question such as an advance healthcare directive or personnel policies, let me know in the comments below or drop a line and I will be happy to arrange a virtual meeting.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to the office at 333-6700 or; unless it’s for toilet paper. In that case, you’re on your own and, well, I acknowledge the Cloud is not so Angel Soft
