COVID-19 Resources: How We Can Assist You from Your Home

The COVID-19 pandemic has incurred far-reaching consequences in every sector of our lives: public health, social interactions, legal processes, and the economy. While businesses, organizations, and even government agencies have suspended operations, the Hensel Law Office, PLLC is here to help you overcome the challenges of this global crisis.

Without leaving the safety of your home, you can benefit from our dedicated services. We are now offering remote consultations via phone and video chat to continue supporting our clients without compromising their health.

Furthermore, we can conduct many legal processes virtually. For example, our Court currently allows for the signing of documents electronically. Additionally, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Court has adopted temporary protocols involving telephonic hearings – meaning you may not even have to leave your home in order to ‘appear’ at your hearing.

No matter the unique circumstances of your case, Hensel Law Office, PLLC can provide most (if not all) the services you need without having to meet you in person.

To learn more about how we can assist you during this crisis, call (888) 258-0651 or contact us online today.

Critical Information About COVID-19 and Your Case

Part of our job as a law firm is to provide our clients with as much information as possible. Knowledge is power—especially during an unpredictable crisis such as the current pandemic. As such, we are staying up to date on COVID-19-related laws, policies, and court operations in order to keep you informed.

Many sources spread misinformation—either intentionally or otherwise. We urge you to fact-check as much as possible and only use reliable sources such as those listed above.

Emergency Legislation for Financial Relief

Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to help Americans survive the financial ramifications of the pandemic.

The act includes support for:

  • Individuals (stimulus checks, enhanced unemployment, and loans)
  • Small businesses and corporations (loans and grants)
  • Public health organizations and facilities
  • Local and state governments

It also contains several provisions that temporarily adjust bankruptcy, making bankruptcy more accessible to both individuals and businesses until March 27, 2021.

If you need help interpreting the CARES Act or determining whether you are eligible for relief, please do not hesitate to contact our firm. We can provide information about local, state, and federal relief, and we are fully prepared to help you file bankruptcy if your financial burdens become unmanageable.

  • Utmost dedication and professionalism.

    “I chose to work with Tom Hensel after meeting with several big name firms in the area. Tom handled my unique situation with the utmost dedication and professionalism. The personal service I received from him made all the difference in my case. My only regret is that I didn't call him first.”


  • Tom Hensel is definitely the right attorney to call!

    “I was referred to Tom Hensel by a friend. My first impression was not only was Tom professional but he's so kind and caring too. He helped my husband and I through an embarrassing, scary situation and definitely made it more positive one. He guided us through our options and helped us make the right decision for us which ended up being a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Tom was so knowledgeable and helped us throughout the whole process. He never once made us feel uncomfortable or dumb when we had questions. He was also very easy to get a hold of when questions would come up and would always return our calls and emails promptly. I strongly recommend Tom to anyone going through this kind of financial nightmare. Do yourselves a favor and call him right away. He will help you get on the right path again. Our only mistake was waiting so long to call him!! When we in court waiting our turn all the other attorneys referred to their clients as "The debtors" Tom on the other hand acknowledged us by our names. Little things mean a lot and that left a lasting impression with us. Tom Thank You again for all your help!!”

  • Professional, competent, empathetic attorney.

    “My husband and I were forced into a position to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We were devastated and mortified that we had to choose that route, but Tom eased our stress about the filing and court hearing process, as he thoroughly explained what Chapter 7 entails, as well as exactly what to expect during and after the filing process; he was accurate on each point that he advised us on. Tom also kept in frequent contact with us and responded quickly to any questions or concerns that we had while we worked with him. Tom's expertise and tact was invaluable for us, and we will absolutely recommend him to any of our friends and relatives that may find themselves in similar positions to ours. Thank you, Tom, for your dedicated help during this process.”
