O'Donnell Law Center ~ We carry your burden, you carry on with life.
O’Donnell Law Center is designed to focus on you when you have hit a bump in the road or decided to undertake a new adventure such as purchasing a new home or starting a new business. Everything we do is intended to take the burden off of your shoulders and place it on ours. At O’Donnell Law Center you have a team of professionals who communicate with you often and work efficiently to get your problem resolved or your new idea off the ground. We recognize that when you come to us for help, you already have a lot of stress. We want to reduce that stress, not add to it. So we give you options and put you in control of how we deliver legal services to you. We also want you to know the total cost of your legal services up front. Knowing the total cost of your legal services up front also helps reduce stress. We prefer flat fees for most engagements, and we think you will, too. In most cases, we will charge you a flat fee, up front, based upon the services we agree you will need. You will also know what services are available to you if your case later takes an unexpected turn and becomes more complicated.
As we all do what we can to keep our families, staff, clients and communities safe from
the coronavirus pandemic, O’Donnell Law Center is fully operational
Since its inception, O'Donnell Law Center has been a cloud-based, technology-forward law office. This means our team delivers legal services that are:
Mobile. We travel to those who can’t.
Virtual. We seamlessly transition between our brick-and-mortar office and our home offices, and our clients review and sign their documents from anywhere, at any time, using any device, and communicate with our team and receive a steady rhythm of status updates through video, phone, text, secure client portal, and email communications.
Brick and mortar based. Our permanent, fully staffed and welcoming office is always open during regular business hours, except that during the coronavirus pandemic it is open only to clients by appointment and closed to the general public
We are uniquely positioned to navigate these next few weeks or months with no impact on our delivery of legal services and no inconvenience to our clients. We continue to welcome new clients to the O’Donnell Law Center family, and deepen our relationships with current clients.
For our estate planning clients who are getting their affairs in order, we are busy drafting wills, trusts and powers of attorney, and offer a choice of short signing ceremony environments that are built around the CDC’s recommended social distancing and hygienic practices:
- In our lobby. You arrive at our office at your appointment time and wait in your car until our office is clear of other clients and non-essential personnel and we have disinfected surfaces that you may come into contact with. Upon your entry, you will be invited to quickly execute your documents at a table just inside our lobby front door while our notary and witnesses watch from a distance, then you will be prompted to leave. After you leave, our notary and witnesses will sign your documents, which we will then mail to you.
- In our parking lot. Our notary and witnesses will gather around your vehicle and watch you from a safe distance while you execute your documents, remaining at all times in the safety of your car. After, we will take possession of your signed documents, and after you leave, our notary and witnesses will sign your documents, then mail them to you.
- Prepare now, sign later. Our team prepares your documents now but postpones the signing ceremony until you are comfortable leaving your home.
For our family law and probate clients, we are still filing cases, moving them through our workflow process toward resolution, and when possible, resolving them without ever having to go to court. While the courtrooms have largely closed their doors to the public, the judges, clerks and court administrators remain hard at work, ensuring that our community maintains access to the legal system and to legal remedies.
As always, you can reach us by phone or text @ 573-552-0317, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Center is located off of Highway 54 at the KK exit, in the Palisades Village Shopping Center in Osage Beach, Missouri, behind Central Bank of the Lake of the Ozarks and next to Five Star Fitness, and The Paint Box Cafe©. The center is open from 9:00 to 12:00 and 1:00 to 5:00, Monday through Friday, but Center staff is available to communicate with you outside of regular business hours.
