                     Our Firm’s Response to COVID-19: May 2021

The mission of Shepherd Elder Law Group, LLC is to be an aide and advocate in helping the aging and special needs communities – both during peaceful times as well as times of great challenge. While so many advancements to combat the COVID-19 virus have been implemented, we remain vigilant. During this time of continued awareness and concern of the virus, our firm’s primary objective is the health and well-being of our clients and employees. In light of this, we want to provide you with some critical information.


Shepherd Elder Law Group’s offices in Overland Park, which includes the Kansas City metro, and Hutchinson will remain open during our regular business hours, and we continue to take extra precautions as we follow best practices and guidance from healthcare professionals for infection control.


Accordingly, we are asking employees with any known illness or possible exposure to refrain from coming to work. We would also request that you contact us to reschedule an appointment if you are ill, experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or believe that you have been exposed.


The comfort and security of our clients are paramount. If you need assistance and are concerned about unnecessary public exposure, we would like to inform you of several continuing options that are available and to offer flexibility when possible.

  • Telephone conferences and/or video conferences will be available for all office visits.
  • In-person meetings will be arranged while maintaining social distancing and PPE guidelines. Masks are not required but are recommended and will be provided, if needed.
  • We realize that many of our clients and their families find themselves in a crisis situation. If you are experiencing such, please let us know, and we will work with you to come up with a flexible plan of action in order to assist you as best as possible.


The attorneys and staff at SELG remain committed to serving the aging, disabled, and special needs communities in Kansas and Missouri. We are making every effort to safeguard your health and well-being while continuing to be an essential resource for your immediate and long-term legal needs.

“I just want to say that your kindness and knowledge made both myself and my Dad cry! Not sad tears – tears of relief. As my mom enters senior living, it is a huge relief to me and my family that my dad does not have to lose any more than he already has and can stay where he is with his two dogs that they both love so much!
