Kain & Scott is open and fully staffed during our normal hours! UPDATE: Starting June 1, 2020 Kain & Scott will offer in-person initial consultations and review and sign appointments for those who are willing to use hand sanitizer and wear a mask while in-office (one will be provided to you if you don’t have one). In-person appointments are only available to guests who are not sick on the date of the in-person appointment and who have not had Covid 19 symptoms in the last 14 days from the appointment date. Any in-person appointment can be easily converted to a phone, Skype, Face Time, or Zoom appointment if necessary. For those who prefer, we can still do the initial consultation and review and sign appointment by phone, Skype, Face Time, or Zoom.
