Kirker Davis Remains Fully Operational and Committed to Our Clients’ Needs
With the current global situation continually evolving and impacting many people’s daily lives, our main priority continues to be the well-being of our clients. To ease anxieties that you may be experiencing regarding your matter during this time, below is a breakdown of what you can reliably expect from our team.
What Remains the Same
Fully Operational: Kirker Davis is still fully operational and is available to provide comprehensive legal services to our clients.
Same Contacts and Hours: Our attorneys and staff are still available to answer your questions and speak with you about your case. Our team is available at the same phone numbers and email addresses from 8:30am until 5:30pm, Monday through Friday.
Remote work: Because Kirker Davis has comprehensive remote working abilities, our team will be working securely from home. This means that meetings will be via either teleconference or video conference rather than in-person.
Texas Court Operations: Texas courts are modifying operations according to the developing situation. Most hearings are being converted to phone or video-conference, postponed or cancelled. Kirker Davis attorneys are frequently monitoring their clients’ cases and will continue to stay abreast of developments with the court. Regardless of how your legal proceedings may be impacted, your attorney will keep you consistently informed.
Communicate Clear Expectations with Your Teams at the Outset
Because remote work prevents regular, in-person check-ins and presents other unique challenges, each team member should both inquire about and convey clear expectations regarding updates, communication, workflow, etc. right from the beginning.
Share Updates Promptly and Communicate Regularly
Consider what types of updates are necessary for your teams in order to help everyone stay connected and informed and share those promptly, inclusively, and in an organized fashion.
Regular check-ins stop larger issues from festering, allow for immediate and regular feedback, and promote open communication.
Daily or weekly check-ins might include: (1) What did I work on yesterday?; (2) What am I working on today?; (3) What issues are blocking me?; (4) Am I concerned about meeting any deadlines?; (5) Do I need help managing my workload?; (6) Do I have capacity to help others manage their workloads?
Combat miscommunication by speaking on the phone or via videoconference when necessary and possible.
Consider Making Slack Your Virtual “Main Office”
To avoid isolation and facilitate a sense of accessibility, consider using Slack if you do not already do so. It will allow team members to see when you are available and contact you in real-time, much like swinging by your desk to chat quickly.
Continue Your Regular Morning Routine
Continuing your regular morning routine (i.e., showering, getting dressed, etc.) can help set boundaries between working from home and just being at home. Approaching remote work the same way you approach going into the office (minus the office part) can help motivate you in a way that staying in your pajamas may not.
Set and follow a schedule
When working remotely, work life and home life can easily blur together. Try, in advance, to deliberately schedule when your working hours are and when you are carving out your personal time.
Take regular breaks – health and productivity suffer without regular breaks for our brain and bodies.
Create a workspace
If possible, set aside a separate workspace in your home in order to further create boundaries between work-time and personal time.
Achieving Results. ®
"The divorce process is not an easy one, but I always felt fully supported, informed, and guided by Chris and the staff. Chris always laid out the options, made me aware of the risks, and provided me with recommendations, but he also gave me the flexibility to work out things with my ex where I could, to speed up the process and avoid some legal expenses. I highly recommend Chris for family law representation.
David - Divorce Representation
"I’m a lawyer myself and Holly helped me with my recent divorce. She did an amazing job. She covered all the little issues that would have collectively cost me a bunch of money in the long run if she had not been so detail-oriented and focused. She is a tenacious advocate for her clients who aims to resolve matters amicably but will fight tooth-and-nail for her clients if that is what it takes to reach a...”
