Construction at the Herndon Law Shop

New flooring at Landau Law Shop
The Landau Law Shop is getting a facelift! New flooring in the conference room, interior and exterior painting, and new furniture are some of the upgrades clients will notice.

There’s always something happening and it’s usually quite loud – at the Landau Law Shop!

Pardon our dust but the Landau injury and disability law firm’s main building is undergoing construction.

In addition to the painting and repair of gutters on the exterior of the over 100-year-old ABRAMS LANDAU building, interior painting has been completed as well.

While lawyer Doug Landau was busy trying a workers’ compensation case in Berryville, Virginia, the flooring in the common areas was replaced, a new conference room table and chairs ordered, and other changes around the office should be noticeable before Thanksgiving.

Some clients have already noticed changes such as Dianna Meredith’s workspace being moved to the front parlor; fewer paper files in evidence in her work space; and a trend toward “verticality” so that the “one touch” files can get immediate response.  Dianna needed a separate space so that while on hold with the Social Security Administration for extended periods time, personal information about our clients is kept private and confidential.  Those clients who have experienced these long wait times with this Federal agency can appreciate this change.

Because our goal is to NOT have clients spend much time waiting for us, we have opted to move our waiting area from the parlor to a small but comfortable space in the vicinity of Beatrice Vargas’ workspace, adjacent to the kitchen and conference room.

The building has always been handicapped accessible – there are no steps to get inside the Landau Law Shop.  In the good weather, many clients prefer to sit outside, as do our tenants from Potter’s Fire and other lawyers who may be meeting with their clients at our facilities.

“After owning these buildings for over 15 years, it was time to upgrade both the interior and exterior.  While we don’t need fancy, and we strive always for a “family feel,” it was time to change out some of the furniture, paint, and make improvements to other aspects of our building,” notes Doug Landau.  Melissa Landau adds, “because of Doug’s eye for such things as matching floorboards, paint and trim, he delegated these tasks me!”

The building will have the same look it has had since we bought it, but we hope clients will feel even more comfortable and at home when they come to visit with us.  Please feel free to stop by and see us if you’re in the neighborhood!
