Estate Planning and Administrations During Shelter-in-Place

We at Hyden-Zakheim, LLP, like all of us, are doing our best to flatten the curve and slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.  Pursuant to the Bay Area and California wide Shelter in Place Orders, we are offering only very limited services as needed for emergency matters and essential functions.  As a result, we have discontinued all in-person meetings in order to protect public safety.  These measures will be in place until we receive guidance from government that they are no longer required for continued public safety. 

We are taking the state-wide social distancing, isolation, and shelter in place orders very seriously.  We however recognize that estate planning and other administrative matters especially pertaining to those who are ill or at substantial risk, such as for our caregivers, first responders, paramedics, police, fire department, doctors, nurses, hospital staff, shipping, delivery, grocery, pharmacy, gas station clerks, and so many more on-going, essential functions, can be of upmost importance at this time.  We wish to thank each and every individual who continues to sacrifice so much to provide continued essential services.

Frequently there are also urgent or emergency situations prior to and after the death of an individual, including concerns for dependent loved ones.  We are here for you during these challenging times.

We have added new, additional functioning to allow for remote, web-based meetings and consultations.  If you have a computer, tablet, or phone with internet access we can now offer web-based meetings so that you can continue to shelter in place but also get the answers you may need at this time.  If you do not have a computer, tablet, or phone with internet access and have telephone access, we can also schedule a teleconference.

Please contact us at (925) 831-0636 or at ae@hydenzakheimlaw.com to request more information or to schedule an appointment.  Because of the limited scope of operations during this time, you may receive a faster response via email than via telephone.  We are returning phone calls as quickly as we are able to and generally within a business day.  If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911.

We understand the anxiety you are experiencing during this unprecedented time, we are experiencing it too.  However, we are more than happy to share our knowledge and expertise in the areas of estate planning, trust and probate administrations to help alleviate some of the uncertainty.  Our comprehensive estate plans allow you to have peace of mind so that you can focus on other important matters.  If you would like more information regarding our estate plans, trusts, or probates, please feel free to browse through our website.

We wish you and your loved ones continued health during this time.
