Due to COVID-19, we are asking that you call before coming to the office. We have tried video-conferencing and do not like it, but we can see you in person (safely) if you call first. Or we can talk on the phone.

If you are a potential new client, we prefer that you call rather than fill out a "contact" form or use email. You might have a deadline or a special circumstance--one you don't even know about! 


If you are an existing client wanting to use email, please use the first name of the person you are trying to reach and add the website name. Example: holly@wncdisability.com
