BHMK Law’s physical office is now open and operating on a modified basis. Most of our attorneys and staff have returned to the office and are on site to serve your needs, while those who are not continue to work remotely and take advantage of the technology investments we have made over the last few years. We are limiting the number of persons in the office at one time and have created special protocols around client visits to the office. Please discuss your needs and our protocols with your attorney or staff member. We are proud to continue to serve you at this time and continue to prioritize the health and safety of our clients, staff, and attorneys.
