We’re profiling local businesses and learning how they’re adjusting during the COVID-19 pandemic. Meet Jason Hickman of Compton & Duling (12701 Marblestone Drive, Suite 350, Prince William (703) 888-9446).

Tell our readers about your company (under normal circumstances). What do you do, what services do you provide?

Compton & Duling, LC is a legal services firm that has been working with the community for the past 52 years. We offer assistance, guidance, and legal advice and strategies for the following areas:

  • real estate (all aspects from land use to transaction – anything related to real estate),
  • business (all aspects from set-up to on-going counsel as to all aspects of business),
  • domestic relations (all aspects of family law),
  • estate planning and administration (again all aspects for estate planning and administering an estate),
  • and litigation (Community Associations, Collections, Landlord/Tenant, Civil LItigation, Creditor’s Rights, and many other litigation areas).

We also represent many Community Associations from administrative and governance to collections. Our team is here to help.

If you are a brick and mortar company open to the public, what are you doing to assure staff and clients are safe?

In order to offer facilities for our clients, we have three options available:

  1.  telephonic meetings;
  2.  videoconferencing for meetings;
  3. and in-person meetings.

We are limiting our in-person meetings to those that are necessary , i.e., will signings, closings, etc. In our office, we practice social distancing in all of our meetings and interactions. We clean the meeting areas several times a day, including before and after those meetings. Staff and attorneys are also cleaning their individual areas multiple times per day. Many of our attorneys and staff are working remotely if they do not have an in-person meeting. We are flexible in our schedule and our meeting capabilities.

What are you doing during this time to promote your business? Online Classes? Videos? Zoom meetings? Blogging?

We are offering updates to our clients as to all of the COVID-19 related legislation and providing links and documents to assist with clients’ needs. Our clients use Zoom/GoToMeeting platforms to assist them with understanding the requirements for them individually or as a group. Our goal is to provide the best guidance and counsel on the current situation that is creating a “new” normal for everyone. We are helping clients with policies and procedures, as well as how to address everything from lending, to lease issues, to employment issues, to whatever issues arise with our clients. Planning ahead is crucial.

Anything else we need to know?

Our goal is to help our community. We are each supporting local business as much as we can, from restaurants to hardware stores to providing food to ACTS to anything else we can do. Our community is your community.
