Highlights from This Week
After our first month of self-isolation and social distancing, most of us are feeling this change acutely  –  whether it's in our wallets or our mindsets. The good news is that there should be some relief coming both to individuals and small businesses. In the meantime, don't forget about your friends and neighbors who may also be struggling during this time. If you can donate to a food pantry or order takeout from a local restaurant, please do. If you can't, there are a million free ways to bring some joy to the community, from putting a teddy bear in the window for neighborhood kids to find to calling a neighbor or family member. The opportunities to do good are endless.

Head to our Facebook , YouTube , Twitter , Instagram , and LinkedIn accounts to stay on top of how we're serving you and our community during this time, and as always, stay healthy.
Meals for Healthcare Heroes
On Thursday, my firm provided a Jimmy John's lunch to healthcare workers at WellStar Kennestone Hospital to show our thanks. These folks are working long hours and putting themselves in harm's way to fight this pandemic, and we're incredibly grateful for the important work they do on the front lines! You can donate to Kennestone Hospital's COVID-19 relief efforts here.

A big thank you as well to the Church Street Jimmy John's for their enthusiasm and action to help provide these healthcare workers with a mid-day treat!
Your Stimulus Check
A lot of you have questions about your government stimulus check, like when it's coming, how much you'll get, or how your recent divorce could affect things.

You can watch my associate Kimi's video for the answers to these questions and more here.
Small Business Loans
Over the weekend, I updated folks on applications for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans and Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program, which has had a few hiccups in the process so far.

You can find my full video here.
Wednesday Webinars
I'm holding weekly Zoom webinars that are only about 15 minutes long to give you topline information on how your ongoing legal matters are being affected by COVID-19. This week's guest was Cherokee County teacher Carrie Minicozzi, who discussed distance learning and how parents can best optimize their children's time while they're stuck at home.
