While the Coronavirus (COVID-19) was disrupting everyone’s lives, Palmer Lehman Sandberg worked to achieve a balance – continuing to take care of our clients’ legal needs, while protecting our clients, our employees, and our community (local and nationwide).

As Texas has begun to reopen, Palmer Lehman Sandberg has adjusted accordingly.

  • We are available for in-office meetings, with the following protections in place – while in our building and our office common areas (lobby, elevators, hallways, etc.), visitors must wear face coverings, and maintain social distancing (minimum 6’) as much as possible.
  • We continue telephone and video conferencing in place of face-to-face meetings, for those who prefer it.

As we continue to serve you, we wish everyone safety and good health as together we move forward through these uncertain times.

Please reach out to anyone at our firm via email or phone with any questions or concerns.
