Open on a Limited Basis
As of March 25, 2020, Sykes Elder Law has been granted permission by the PA governor’s office to remain open to perform elder law services on a limited basis during the current health crisis.
We are available to assist clients with Medicaid qualification and asset protection; probate for a deceased loved one; preparing vitally needed documents such as health care directives, powers of attorney, and wills; and assisting with the execution of necessary documents.
Primarily, we will assist clients remotely by phone, email, and videoconference.
In-person visits in our office are by appointment only and (as directed by the governor’s office) “only to be performed on the most limited basis possible to deliver the services or goods of your life-sustaining business” and in strict compliance with social distancing and other health protocols.
Call (412) 531-7123 during regular business hours to find out how we can serve you.
Below is the full text of the response given to Sykes Elder Law by the Pennsylvania governor’s office in response to our request to continue providing elder law services:
|Governor Wolf and Secretary Levine’s recent orders calling for the closure of non-life-sustaining businesses do not appear to require your business to close at this time. Your business appears to be within a life-sustaining business sector that contributes to the health and safety of Pennsylvania. You do not require a waiver/exemption to remain open for the business described in your request.
Your business must remain in compliance with the social distancing and other mitigation measures which have been established by the Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as currently in effect or as may be amended in the future. Virtual and telework operations (e.g. work from home) must be the primary option when available. In-person work at a business site is only to be performed on the most limited basis possible to deliver the services or goods of your life-sustaining business.
We appreciate your efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19.
