COVID-19: An Update from Eaton Peabody

During this time of uncertainty, we at Eaton Peabody hope that you, your families and colleagues are safe and well.  The ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency continues to spread and create challenges for businesses and individuals.

Eaton Peabody’s internal business routines have been changed to protect the health and safety of our employees and our clients. For the present, we will plan to conduct client meetings electronically – over the telephone or via video conferencing; however, our commitment and ability to provide the highest level of client service continues. Starting March 16, all Eaton Peabody employees (attorneys, paralegals, consultants and staff) have been asked to work remotely. Whether in the office or working remotely, we remain fully connected and able to assist all of our clients with their needs in a timely fashion.

To contact us please email or call our main number, 207-947-0111 as normal. Eaton Peabody is thankful for the trust you have put in our firm.  Stay safe and be well.
