To all our current and potential clients, we hope you and yours are in good health. Given the current state of our economy and the fight against the COVID-19 virus, many are under significant amounts of stress. Cotton Bledsoe is committed to do its best to help minimize that stress. The Firm is taking significant measures to protect the health of its personnel and many are now working remotely – this includes our attorneys, paralegals and legal secretaries. Our remote capabilities give us access to our systems and we are able to do everything for you that we could prior to this new (temporary) reality. Where appropriate, we have the ability to conduct most meetings virtually.

We will get through this time together. Thank you for your continued trust and please do not hesitate to contact any of our firm’s attorneys directly or through this website. We appreciate all of you and wish you the best as we navigate these unprecedented challenges together.
