Steven D. Barnette, P.C..
As you know, we are living in a moment of great uncertainty. With new information about the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) emerging daily and guidance from authorities evolving along with it, I want to let you know that our staff members are taking additional steps to safeguard the health of our staff as well as our valued clients. Your health and safety is a paramount concern for us, as well as the continued representation of you in your matters.
On March 16, 2020, Chief Justice Donald W. Lemons declared a Judicial State of Emergency. To say that this declaration has had an impact on docketing of cases is a drastic understatement. If you have an ongoing matter, whether civil or criminal, please stay in touch with you r attorney so that we can advise you of any date changes, which are occurring hourly. During this time we WILL BE OPEN and ready to meet with you to discuss your matter.
I recognize that this crisis has had a terrible impact on our economy, and more importantly, on each and every individual. As many of you may know, I wasn't always an attorney and I know what it is like to have a 'real job', a job that is being affected by this fiasco. To assist in weathering this economic storm our offices are enacting new policies and procedures for new clients. We are happy to work with you to address your Legal needs and your ability to afford our services. Payment plans are being extended with generous terms and low down payments. We are willing to work with you to establish a plan that fits your budget during these times of reduced work hours, decreased income, and increased expenses. Consultation fees are being suspended, COME TALK TO US, let us see if we can help. We continue to offer discounts to our community partners such as Riverside, Sentara, and Shipyard Employees.
All of us at the Firm wish each of you the very best and pray for your health and safety during this trying period.
