Helping You Get Through Challenging Times

The past few months have been challenging for everyone. Even as we approach summer, many challenges remain. We all face this uncertainty together. Thankfully, there is light at the end of the tunnel. As we continue to navigate the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, we want to keep you informed about our efforts at VanMeveren Law Group. While we posted an update on our Facebook page (Facebook.com/vanmeverenlawgroup), we wanted to share an update in the newsletter as well. The coronavirus has us all wondering what the future will hold. Its impact is touching every aspect of our lives. It hasn’t been easy, but like you, we are taking it one day at a time and doing everything we can to stay safe, including social distancing. At VLG, we want you to know that we have continued to provide uninterrupted service to all of our clients. We take the challenges presented by the coronavirus seriously, and to help lessen the impact of the crisis, we implemented remote work programs among our staff and attorneys. These programs help to limit the number of people in the office while keeping everyone safe and working. You can take comfort in the fact that everyone at VLG has the tools and resources they need to work on your case remotely. We have at least one staff member and one attorney available at our south office on Caribou Drive to respond when things are needed at the office. There, they can take client phone calls and forward calls and information as needed. And speaking of the phones, our lines are open. If you need anything, we are available and taking every call that comes in. We are assisting people with new claims, and we continue to provide additional resources or referrals to another attorney when needed as well. All of your case information, and all of our firm's resources, are protected and available to us remotely. We’ve employed top-notch IT security through our IT vendor. Just as our offices are secure, our remote work is secure too. Court activity is where things are a little different. Court activity has been suspended for quite some time. By the time you read this, it is possible that court activity may have begun to slowly resume. Because court activity has been suspended, however, many cases may be delayed, but we will continue moving all aspects of your case forward as efficiently as possible. If we do anticipate delays from the courts, then we will let you know.

You can rest assured that your case is in good hands and hopefully that gives you one less thing to worry about.

Again, we remain available to you via telephone, email, text, our app, conference call, fax, FaceTime, Skype, and Zoom. Whichever method of communication you’re most comfortable with, we’re happy to oblige. Although these are stressful times, we want you to know we have your back. You can rest assured that your case is in good hands and hopefully that gives you one less thing to worry about. Please continue to care for yourself and your loved ones — and we’ll take care of your case. Stay safe and we’ll see you soon.

Our Clients Say It Best

“VanMeveren is the absolute best law firm there is. My experience with them was fantastic. It's hard enough when going through such a difficult time, but Jolene, who was my attorney, made it a lot easier and handled everything. She truly cared about me and my family; she would check in every week to see how I was doing and to update me on the case. If I ever need a lawyer again, they will be the only law firm I will use.” –Cody Jasinski

The Final Frontier

NASA Takes You on a (Virtual) Space Adventure

Commercial space travel might still be the stuff of science fiction stories, but thanks to computer programs and augmented reality, your family can still experience what it’s like to explore space. NASA and other organizations provide a wealth of free resources that make space exploration come to life for stargazers and future astronauts alike. Take some time to explore a few of our favorites today. Touring the International Space Station First launched in 1998, the International Space Station is a multinational space research laboratory. Nineteen different nations have sent astronauts, cosmonauts, and space tourists to the space station to conduct scientific experiments. It’s truly the stuff science fiction dreams are made of! In 2012, Expedition 33 Commander Sunita Williams filmed a full tour of this amazing floating lab and even included a quick lesson on how to work out in zero gravity. “Visit” the space station for yourself at Bit.ly/ISSTour. Exploring Deep Space Via Virtual Reality On Jan. 30, 2020, NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope concluded its 16-year mission researching exoplanets, which are planets outside our solar system. This data was used to create Exoplanet Excursions, an immersive virtual reality experience that lets your family experience the Spitzer’s discoveries and control the telescope yourself. These incredible excursions are available on Oculus or Steam, so visit Spitzer.Caltech.edu/vr to start your adventure and explore deep space today! Planet-Hopping With NASA Have you ever wondered would it be like to stand on another world? Then “book” your next vacation with the Exoplanet Travel Bureau! This program takes you on digital tours of real exoplanets NASA has discovered. Though we don’t know what the surfaces of these worlds look like, artists have used scientific data to create 3D landscapes to explore. See them all, from Kepler-16b to TRAPPIST- 1e, at Exoplanets.NASA.gov/alien-worlds/exoplanet-travel-bureau.
