It has long since been a fact that the digital age heavily impacts our lives. Never was this fact more true, however, before the global pandemic struck in 2020. Suddenly, those who may not have been as attached to technology were forced to learn how to better incorporate it into their lives.

This impacted people not just on an interpersonal level, but a business level. Companies that previously operated mostly on a face-to-face basis were forced to transition to a virtual way of keeping in business.

West Palm Beach attorney, Mark Shalloway, is among the professionals who had to make this change. His elder law firm, Shalloway & Shalloway, has served South Florida’s senior citizens and their families for 30 years now, and they weren’t about to let a pandemic get in the way of that service. In a time where an area of law such as elder law is so important, it was crucial that Shalloway keep their doors open, even if that meant in a virtual setting.

To keep people safe and healthy at home, Shalloway & Shalloway offered their services over phone or video call. Though working from home, everyone is available during regular business hours to discuss one’s estate planning, asset protection, or any other elder law needs. Florida documents can even be notarized using audio-video technology during this time– ensuring every step can be made from the comfort and safety of one’s home.

Always a proponent for educating the masses, Shalloway hosts free, elder law seminars where audience members can learn about anything from wills and trusts to Medicaid planning. For years, these seminars occurred across Palm Beach County, open to any who wanted to learn more about the world of law. When meeting in large quantities became dangerous, Shalloway didn’t let those seminars day. He adapted. Now, anyone in the world can attend Shalloway’s free, virtual seminars every month via Zoom. Clients should reserve their spots by emailing or calling 561-686-6200 to get the most out of the experience.

As things change, so have Shalloway’s services. The offices are open again, but extra precautions are taken for the benefit of clients and employees alike. Everyone is required to wear masks and keep six feet in distance. Plastic dividers have been put up in offices and at reception to better separate everyone. Additional sanitization measures have been taken on top of the firm’s already existing cleaning system. At Shalloway’s offices, clients can be confident they are safe.

Whether more comfortable with a physical or virtual connection, Shalloway & Shalloway is there for their clients. Learn more by calling 561-686-6200, filling out this contact form, or visiting their office.

When one thinks of a court reporter, they generally imagine someone sitting behind a type-writer, transcribing the events of a horrible criminal case or civil suit. These interpretations are not incorrect, but there are so many more instances that a good court reporter is absolutely necessary to a case. There’s entertainment, sport, environmental, and any other number of law type, but something that is often forgotten about is elder law.
