2020 – what a ride! While the year is not yet over, it is hard not to start looking ahead to 2021 with hopes for an effective vaccine, the opportunity to see family and friends, and the freedom to resume our professional lives, including fully reopening our offices, going to court and meeting with clients and colleagues. The year has been difficult to be sure, but as a company we know that we have a lot for which to be thankful. That gratitude begins with you - our policyholders.
Do you remember back in March of this year thinking that we’d shut down our lives for 2 or 3 weeks and then get back to normal? Yet, here we are 7 months later and we find ourselves grappling with a new normal as the Covid-19 virus continues to sicken our family and friends, disrupt schools, impact law practices and other businesses, and stir anxiety for what the fall and winter will bring. We hope you, your family and your work colleagues are healthy and that you’ve adapted to this new normal, personally and professionally, as much as possible. Here at Lawyers Mutual, we remain committed to serving you and meeting your professional liability insurance needs.
On July, 23, 2020, the Kentucky Justice Association (KJA) is presenting the “Trial Lawyers Implicit Bias Zoom Program” featuring speaker Pastor Edward L. Palmer, Sr. The program runs from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and costs only $50.00, for all attendees (KJA members or non KJA members), for 3 hours of continuing legal education credit – a great bargain. Your registration fee will go to support one of two charities that you designate when you register. Detailed information about the program and a link to the registration page can be found below for your convenience.
First and foremost, we hope that you and your families are healthy and that you are managing well, personally and professionally, during the ongoing pandemic and social unrest. Please accept our sincere thanks and appreciation for your continued confidence in, and support of, Lawyers Mutual of Kentucky (“LMICK”). We are proud to have you as insureds.
In accordance with the Governor’s May 8, 2020 Order for phase 1 reopenings, including professional service offices (See Executive Order 2020-323), we began a phased reopening of LMICK’s offices on May 11, 2020. Since March 23rd, we’d been working mostly remotely with in-office activity only as absolutely necessary. Since May 11th, however, there has been LMICK staff in the office every day, but some remote work continues. Like you, we are working, homeschooling children, taking care of non-school age children without available daycares and trying to keep ourselves and our families healthy and well. Yet, we remain committed to serving your needs and moving back to a more normal work environment.
