New Client Informational and Intake Call
Contact us any time by chat, email to firstname.lastname@example.org, call to 781-740-0848, or the form below for a free, New Client Informational and Intake Call. A member of our team will answer your general questions, provide you with some information about how we work and what you can expect from us, ask you for some basic background information to ensure a good fit and steer you toward the appropriate services to work together, and help you decide if you would like to schedule the proper paid consultation to meet with Attorney Danielle G. Van Ess.
Professional Legal Consultation with Attorney Danielle G. Van Ess
Following your free, new client informational and intake call, we will help you schedule the appropriate paid consultation with Attorney Danielle G. Van Ess to review and discuss the specifics of your matter.
- For estate planning matters, that will be your Peace of Mind Planning Session or perhaps a Wills, Trusts, Estate Plan Review Meeting.
- For probate or trust administration matters, that will be your Estate Administration Intake Meeting.
We will ask you to pay your consultation fee and complete the appropriate electronic intake worksheet in advance of your attorney consultation so we can properly prepare to advise you and answer your specific questions at that time.
Existing DGVE law clients are also welcome to request to schedule their Estate Plan Review Meetings.
It is our firm's policy to preserve your confidentiality at all times. We are strictly bound by professional rules of ethics as well as by personal conviction. We respect your privacy, have safeguards in place internally to protect your confidential information, and we will never disclose or release your private information to anyone without your prior, express consent.
COVID-19 Safety Protocols
During the coronavirus pandemic, we are conducting all meetings via secure video conferencing. We have developed a Safely-Distanced Signing Procedure with your convenience, health, and safety in mind. We require properly-fitted face masks, provide hand sanitizer, ensure safe social distancing, and follow cleaning protocols before and after each signing appointment. Please see our COVID-19 page for more details. Our comfortable offices are located at 61 South Street in downtown Hingham Square, on the 2nd floor over "Artisans in the Square" and "The Coop." We regret that our office space is not universally accessible. If this presents a challenge, please let us know so we may make alternate arrangements as necessary and appropriate. If necessary, we are also able to offer fully remote signing, witnessing, and notarization services for our clients, though additional fees will apply.
During the coronavirus pandemic, to protect the health and safety of our team members and our families, our clients and their families, and our shared communities, we are only providing Notary Public services for our clients as needed.
