Our Covid-19 Response and Resources

virtual attorney meetings during covid-19

Here at Gottlieb, Johnston, Beam & Dal Ponte, PLL, we pride ourselves on being Zanesville’s largest full-service law firm. For over 50 years, our attorneys have earned a reputation for providing trusted, expert legal services to our community and its businesses. This is why we’ve pieced together a list of resources to help those we serve navigate the changes in our lives due to Coronavirus.

As we have grown, we have also made it our business to care about the clients, people and communities we serve. We have never—nor will we ever—lose sight of what’s important and that’s all about the health, stability and success of the people and places surrounding us.

Today’s world has brought us COVID-19. It has temporarily and undoubtedly changed how we all function, operate and go about our personal and work lives.

Today, people meet by video, rather than in person.

Today, people nod their heads and stay more than six feet away from one another on the sidewalk, rather than stopping, shaking hands and talking for a bit.

Now, we talk to loved ones by phone or through a window, rather than bringing in a plate of food or to share a hug.

And yet throughout all of these unbelievable and extraordinary changes, the one thing that has not changed—nor will it ever change—is our ability to be of the utmost service and support to you.
