Our office is OPEN to help Maryland Residents.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) “Drive-Thru” Curbside Signings & Documents by Mail

As an essential business under the Maryland Stay-At-Home Order, we are open and fully operational. We are currently completing 98% of our work virtually via online meetings and telephone conferences. However, in Maryland, we’re offering the following options for document signings:

  • “In Office” Signings
  • “Drive Thru” Curbside Signings at the Office
  • “Driveway” Signings at your Home

“In-Office” Signings:

  • Our team is well spread out in our office and we’ve been regularly hand-washing and disinfecting
  • When you arrive, you’ll be escorted directly to our Conference Room
  • You’ll be seated at a table that has been disinfected
  • You can bring your own pen or we can provide you with a pen that has been disinfected
  • Our witnesses and notary will be separated from you, and are at least 6-feet away
  • You’ll sign on your signature pages
  • The witnesses and notary will sign their pages where indicated
  • We will copy the documents
  • We’ll place your originals and copies of the documents in a binder, for you to collect at a later time

“Drive-Thru” Curbside Signings at the Office:

  • When you arrive, you’ll stay in your car and we’ll come to you
  • You can bring your own pen or we can provide you with a pen that has been disinfected
  • Our witnesses and notary will be separated from you, and are at least 6-feet away
  • You’ll sign on your signature pages
  • The witnesses and notary will sign their pages where indicated
  • We will copy the documents
  • We’ll place your originals and copies of the documents in a binder, for you to collect at a later time  

“Driveway” Signings:

On a limited basis for those that are immuno-compromised and unable to leave their homes, our “Mobile Response Unit” will come to your home for a “Driveway” Signing. All scheduling is at the Law office’s discretion so we can come up with an efficient plan and not be asking our team to drive back and forth all over town. Here’s how it will work:

  • When we arrive at your home:
    • We’ll place the clipboard with signature pages at your door, ring your doorbell, and then step back at least 6-feet
    • You can either use your own pen or we can provide a sanitized pen
    • Once you are done signing, you’ll place the clipboard back on the floor
    • Our witnesses and notary will sign their respective pages
    • A member of our team will retrieve the clipboard and assemble all signed documents
    • We will return to the office and copy the documents
    • We’ll place your originals and copies of the documents in a binder, for you to collect at a later time, mail them to you, or deliver them to your home  

General Office Safety Precautions:

We will continue to conduct in-person signing meetings for as long as safely possible. In order to do so, we have enacted the following safety measures:

  • First and foremost, for the sake of our team and our other clients—some of whom are vulnerable to this disease—please do NOT visit our office if (1) you have reason to believe that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 or (2) if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: dry cough, sore throat, high fever, or shortness of breath.
  • We are continuing to regularly and frequently disinfect our office, including all common areas, restrooms, and conference rooms. All employees are washing their hands upon arrival at the office and regularly throughout the day. We also have hand sanitizer stationed throughout the office.
  • Our conference rooms are being disinfected between each meeting and we have implemented a labeling system to clearly communicate whether a room has been disinfected.
  • We are not providing refreshments to reduce contact and interaction.
  • We’re reviewing our calendar and making adjustments as needed to continue to reduce the number of visitors to our office at the same time.

Bottom line: We are fully prepared and committed
to moving you forward with your planning so you can
have peace of mind that your affairs are in order.

We are trying to do our part to help residents of our local community. If you need help, please give us a call at 301-663-9230, or reach out at info@davidwingate.com.
