Due to COVID 19 and the ominous data on other virus variants, my office will continue our policy of not accepting in-person office consultations until at least through April 30, 2021. However, my office remains open for telephone consultations. If needed, virtual consultations via Zoom are available to ARAG and MetLife members and current clients only. Further, due to the recently relaxed COVID restrictions now in place in Los Angeles County, my office is now open for trust and will signings. Masks are still required.
