In order to best protect our clients and staff from potential exposure to COVID-19, our office has developed new policies and procedures to limit person-to-person contact.
In many cases, we can now represent our clients without them ever having to step foot into our office or a courtroom. Depending on the needs of your case, everything from appointments to court proceedings can typically be done by phone or other contactless means.
Although there are times where in person meetings may be necessary or unavoidable in some cases, our office is prepared to work
How Contactless Works
If you’re a current client or just seeking legal advice, you can set up a phone appointment by calling our office first at (256) 761-1858. Upon request, appointments can be conducted via Zoom, Skype, or FaceTime.
Prior to your appointment any documents or other information that may be needed may be emailed to Robbie@aclg.law, faxed at (256) 362-5966, or dropped off at our office.
Providing Information and Documents
If you need to provide your attorney information and documents, these documents can be emailed, text messaging or faxed.
If you have a smart phone or tablet, you may be able to scan documents right to the device and email them directly to us.
For instructions on how to scan documents to an Apple device go to support.apple.com.

For documents that do not require witnesses or a notary, our clients can sign documents via email, fax, or standard mail.
Documents requiring a notary or witnesses (e.g. Wills, Power of Attorneys and Affidavits), our clients can sign documents while using a videoconferencing technology to allow the witnesses and notaries to be virtually present. The original signed document must then be returned to our office to finalize the execution and notary certification. It is important to notice, this option is only temporarily available in the State of Alabama, pursuant to Governor Kay Ivey’s March 26, 2020 Proclamation.
Drive up signing. Weather permitted, you can stay in your vehicle and our office staff will meet you in our office parking lot.
When in Office Visits are Necessary
Although our office is still operating Monday through Friday, it is closed to the general public.
Therefore, in person visits to our office are limited to certain situations, such as payments and document signing. In those situations, it is requested that you call ahead of time to inform our staff. Face masks are also required to be worn at all times.
