Geraci Law & COVID 19

Below is an article written by Attorney Peter Francis Geraci about our firm’s COVID practices. We work extremely hard to protect staff and our clients. Read more PFG articles at https://www.infotapes.com/Articles.

Geraci Law has always advocated flu shots! Before COVID-19, we had a nurse come in to provide free flu shots to everyone who wanted them. By doing this, we reduced staff illness quite a bit. While there is no vaccination yet for COVID-19, we are taking all the precautions to keep our staff and client safe. Everything from sanitizer to rubber gloves, two desk shields, masks, sanitizing wipes, special packets for client so they have their own pen and mask when they come to the office, and the list goes on.

Geraci Law has over 100 attorneys and staff helping clients file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The secret to protecting them from COVID? High tech remote working capability and strict compliance with Centers for Disease Control recommendations. Let’s take “high tech” first!

How is Geraci Law “hi tech”?  Geraci Law is one of the few law firms in the country that writes its own computer software. We have programmers on staff that work full time exclusively for Geraci Law. We maintain our own servers. This capability allowed us to disperse our staff to remote working immediately when COVID-19 hit. Our staff is been working from home, or from one of our 30 physical locations, since March 17, 2020. We had been prepared for this, because we have been doing remote consultation since Desert Storm.

Hi tech involves video conferencing, virtual document signing, and of course the ability to communicate on the Internet. Geraci Law has an exclusive client portal called Client Corner. From the very first time a client contacts us, even before the consultation, they can upload their documents so that whether it’s a virtual or office consultation, our attorneys can give accurate advice based upon your documents, instead of guessing. You can upload your documents 24/7 , send messages to your Geraci Law attorneys, print copies of your documents for yourself, fill out documents, and sign and transmit them, all without leaving your easy chair. All you need is a cell phone. That helps you stay in your COVID-19bubble, and also save a ton of commuting time.

What about precautions?

The most important aspect of all of this is to limit the damage from COVID-19. At this point more than half of our consultations, remotely, so you we can get back to his close and normal life as possible, without risk of spreading infection. Geraci Law is proud of the way our staff and clients have modified their work and home lifestyles to help everyone get through this crisis.

Extra $600 Unemployment Ends on 7/31 – What Do I Do About My Debt?

The extra $600 in unemployment benefits ends on 7/31 – it may be time to rework the monthly budget.

Extra $600 Unemployment Ends on 7/31 – What Do I Do About My Debt?

The CARES Act provided an additional $600 per week in unemployment benefits. It is a federally funded program that is slated to end on 7/31. It’s only two weeks more of the extra income unless something changes. If you are unemployed, you should immediately review your budget. Take a look you’re your budget dependent on the $600 per week extra income? It is time to come up with an alternative solution…fast.

Make a list of your budget priorities. Expenses like your housing, food, utilities. Then take a closer look at where your money is going. Is your income going straight to student loan minimum payments? You could find savings here by consulting with your provider for a forbearance or deferment plan. Federal loans are automatically deferred until September 30th (read more at https://studentaid.gov/manage-loans/lower-payments/get-temporary-relief/forbearance).

Look at other expenses – a good way to find what you are spending money on is looking at your bank statement. Take a look at the last 30 days. If your budget is reliant on using the credit cards to pay for these priorities because you are ALSO paying the minimums then you are in a budget cycle (see Break the CYCLE of DEBT!).

You could be in a circle where you are making the minimum payments but using the credit again because your cash is gone. If you have LESS income coming in after the $600 additional unemployment benefit ends, then making those minimum payments becomes nearly impossible.  Add the interest rates, late fees attached to credit and you have a debt snowballing.

It may be time to consider a bankruptcy. Break the cycle of credit debt. Call Geraci Law and let’s go over options. If you want to consult by phone, we’re ready. Call 800 CALL PFG and ask to speak with an attorney. Start planning for your financial future so when you are back to work or when you have another source of revenue you are not relying on the credit debt to meet the basic essentials.
