A Note From Derek Lim, Principle Attorney

We are Open and Thank you!

Dear Valued Clients,

We hope this notice finds you and your family in good health. Beginning the coming Monday, June 22, 2020, our office will resume face-to-face services to the public.

Infection control is a top priority for our reopening.  You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help to protect our clients and staff. For example:

  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointments.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between clients as well as to limit the number of people in our office at one time.
  • We have a hand sanitizer and face masks for you to use as needed at the front desk.

We look forward to seeing you and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we have taken to keep you, and every client, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (510) 818-0898 or send us an email at [email protected],  Monday through Friday.

Thank you for being our valued clients.  We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back!
