Sessions: Free Consultations with an LB Attorney

As a law firm, we don’t have PPE to donate and we don’t have medical expertise to help on the front line. However, we do have legal and business counseling acumen that we want to offer at no cost to the business community, many of whom are struggling while others are just unsure of how to navigate the current and uncertain future business environment. In order to give back to the community and do our part to provide support during these uncertain times, we created “Sessions,” which are remote 20-minute free, personal legal counseling and business meetings that we are holding on Fridays from 12-5PM. We welcome local small and medium sized businesses to participate. You may come with your legal and general business questions and one of our attorneys (most likely Daniel Blanchard) will brainstorm and work with you to navigate a path towards resolving whatever issue you may be facing. Our hope is that you leave with some clarity or at least some good ideas to consider.

Since the service is free (and, of course, since we are lawyers), your participation in Sessions is subject to your agreement of the terms and conditions, which you can review by clicking here. If you are interested in scheduling a Session, please make sure you read these terms and conditions carefully. By clicking the scheduling link below, you have agreed to and accepted the terms and conditions.

FFCRA Package: Flat Rate Policy and Forms Customized for your Business

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), was enacted on April 1, 2020 and will remain in effect through the end of this year.

Who is it for?

  • employers with fewer than 500 employees;
  • public employers with at least one employee;
What does it do?
  • requires covered employers to provide up to 80 hours of paid sick leave to employees; and
  • expands the FMLA

How can we help you?

Because the FFCRA creates rights for employees and obligations for employers, we have developed a sample FFCRA Policy and a separate FFCRA Leave Request Form, which can be easily customized to fit the needs of your business.

If you think your business could benefit from our FFCRA Package, please contact Dan Blanchard or Frank Lauletta.

Legally Accountable

In collaboration with our friends at CLM Advisors, LLC, we have launched Legally Accountable – the podcast that explores hot topics in Law, Accounting, and all things business. This project began as a weekly live webinar so that we could provide updates regarding COVID-19 legislation and its impact on and implications for local business owners. We look forward to exploring new topics, inviting guests on the show, and continuing to adapt the format to fit the needs of our audience.
