Most meetings can be held through remote video or telephone conferences.

Regarding the signing of documents, it is always in a client’s best interest to sign a new plan with guidance at an attorney’s office. However, Loveland | Grace | Hurley, PLLC understands that in some unique situations, planning needs to take place when a client might not be able to come to the office to sign. We have a history of creative solutions for unique situations and will work with clients in these situations to secure signing of a new plan. Loveland | Grace | Hurley, PLLC also offers virtual and remote document execution and notary services for certain documents. We accept payment of all major credit cards online as well.
