COVID-19 News and Resources

Loveland Law Office reception area

Loveland Law Firm continues to adapt to the new normal and is closely monitoring the current situation regarding COVID-19.  We want to keep all of our employees and clients as safe and comfortable as possible.  Currently, clients can choose in-person meetings, phone conferences or video conferences to meet with Attorney Loveland.  At this time, our office at Frisco Station is open and is continuing to accept essential in-person appointments with all necessary safety precautions in place.

Loveland Law Firm has always utilized technology to make working together easier and offers a variety of online services.  We can communicate and share documents securely, plus all of the information the office needs for designing your estate plan or administering an estate can be gathered through our online forms and client portal.  You can also schedule your own meetings, finding a day and time that work for you according to available appointments.  Most meetings can be held through remote video or telephone conferences.

In regard to the signing of documents, it is always in a client’s best interest to sign a new plan with guidance at an attorney’s office. However, Loveland Law Firm understands that in some unique situations, planning needs to take place when a client might not be able to come to the office to sign. We have a history of creative solutions for unique situations and will work with clients in these situations to secure signing of a new plan.  Loveland Law Firm also offers virtual and remote document execution and notary services for certain documents.  We accept payment of all major credit cards online as well.

We anticipate the high volume of phone and video conferences to continue through the remainder of the year.  In an effort to keep our clients informed during the COVID-19 crisis, below are instructions for clients participating in remote video hearings or video meetings with our attorneys.
