Office Precautions Due to COVID-19 Pandemic
All of us at Ainsworth, Thelin & Raftice, P.A. hope you and your family are safe and well.
Our attorneys and staff continue to closely monitor coronavirus-related developments in our area. The firm has always followed general health and safety guidelines, including those relative to office cleaning.
However, given the nature and extent of this virus as an extremely contagious pandemic, we’ve taken additional steps out of an abundance of caution.
Currently, we intend to continue to staff our offices and remain available to assist our clients. That being said, we have secured our offices at 7 Ocean Street in South Portland so that we can control access, thereby safeguarding the well-being of our staff, attorneys, clients, and the public at large.
The best manner of contact for the firm remains by telephone.
Our general office number is (207)767-4824. Attorneys and staff also stand ready to communicate via email and facsimile, as needed.
To the extent that you believe that in-person, in-office legal assistance is necessary, please contact the firm by telephone to discuss your particular matter with the appropriate attorney.
Clients experiencing fever, coughing, or shortness of breath must cancel any scheduled appointments. And, of course, clients who have any reason to believe they experienced exposure to the virus must cancel appointments.
In the event that in-office assistance is deemed necessary, please be aware that we have reviewed and reinforced cleaning procedures throughout the firm’s offices, including the prompt, regular cleaning and disinfection of surfaces throughout the firm, such as those found in our conference rooms, reception area, and rest rooms.
Our firm’s attorneys and staff must stay home if they do not feel well, or have any reason to believe they were exposed to the virus.
As a small, local business, we appreciate your support and understanding in these difficult times. If our situation changes, we will update answering machine messages, our firm website, as well as our firm Facebook page, including contact information in the event of a legal emergency.
