In light of the recent pronouncements from the CDC and Governors Sununu and Scott, Janson & Colgan has adopted the following procedures at its office at 37 Bank Street in Lebanon, New Hampshire:

1. Janson & Colgan provides essential legal services to clients insofar as they assist clients with planning for death and disability by the preparation of advance directives such as healthcare powers of attorney, living wills, dementia directives, durable powers of attorney, wills, and related documents. All client conferences will be conducted remotely by telephone and/or video conferencing. Document signing for essential legal documents will occur at Janson & Colgan subject to restrictions set forth below.

2. All non-essential will signings are suspended until further notice. Will signings are those that require two witnesses and a notary. Probate and trust administration services will be rendered remotely by phone or video conferencing.

3. Our office manager/assistant/paralegal will be here from 8:00 - 1:00 during which time there will be no appointments with clients. 4. Most client conferences will be held remotely. In office client appointments will be scheduled between 1:00 - 4:00. Quinn and Eric will see no more than two clients in office per week (for a total of four appointments during any given week).

5. At the beginning of each workday, all work surfaces, door handles, and other potential places where the virus could be transmitted will be disinfected. Clients will be required to sit at least six feet from the attorney during their conference.

6. Before coming to the office for a signing, each client will be contacted by phone to confirm that they do not have any of the corona virus symptoms (cough, headache, fever, fatigue, and/or breathing difficulty) and have not had contact with a person who has been diagnosed with or tested positive for the corona virus.

We will continue to closely monitor the rapidly unfolding COVID-19 events. When we are able, we will make an assessment about the status of our office conferences and will signings.

On behalf of Eric Janson, Quinn Colgan, and Debra Walker, Janson & Colgan apologizes for the curtailment of services, but hope to welcome you back to Janson & Colgan without these restrictions in the next 30-60 days.
