A Message From Jill Metz & Carol Jones

These times are challenging every aspect of our lives, rearranging how we do things and changing our plans. One transition occurring earlier than planned is that after 42 years of active practice, Jill has transitioned to be “of counsel” with the firm and Carol has taken on the role of managing partner.

Our firm continues to be open and functioning, helping new clients and returning clients with complex matters and difficult decisions. We continue to be hopeful, to be kind and caring with one another, and to do our best each day, honoring the memory of those who have died.

~ Jill & Carol
