Worthington Law Firm will be working remotely as long as #healthyathome is the Commonwealth’s policy and law. We expect that the decision to change that will be driven by data and expert recommendations. We will be available to meet for document signings. For those meetings, we’ll follow the CDC’s recommendations about social distancing and cleaning. In fact, we put those procedures into place on March 18. See our social media post here.

On Tuesday, March 24, 2020, Governor Andy Beshear announced an executive order directing all non-life-sustaining businesses to close. You can click on this link to read the order dated Wednesday, March 25, 2020. It directs professional services firms like law firms to telecommute except for Minimum Basic Operations, a narrowly defined term, and “where telecommuting is impossible.”

Fortunately, WLF is in an excellent position for safe and productive remote work. Over many years, Jim Worthington has implemented the technology necessary to keep clients’ data secure while working remotely and to communicate securely using services like Zoom for video conferences and Zultys for secure mobile phone service. We are ready to help you through this difficult time now and in the future. Signing Wills before witnesses is one thing that must be done in person, and we will work to make that possible.
