Orders issued by State of Alaska
and Municipality of Anchorage

Following the phased reopening plans issued by the State of Alaska and the Municipality of Anchorage, our office is transitioning back to being open. Some employees continue to work remotely, at least part of the week, but most are now working from the office. We are not allowing any walk-ins to our office, so if you need to meet with an employee, we encourage that to be arranged via Zoom. If you must come to our office, please schedule an advance appointment and be aware that our landlord requires everyone entering the building to wear a mask in the common areas of the building. Attorneys and paralegals can still be reached on the cell phone numbers and/or via emails listed below. Thank you.
