COVID-19 Update: We are open and serving our clients

Tenn And Tenn is taking a proactive approach to the Coronavirus Pandemic. We understand the need to protect our employees and our clients and also recognize how important it is that we continue to provide quality services to our new and existing clients.

At the present time, NH Governor Chris Sununu has Ordered all non-essential businesses to keep workers out of the workplace and has asked all NH residents to stay home. However, we are still actively accepting new clients and cases and continue to work on existing cases throughout the crisis. Our telephones are being answered, messages are being returned and our team is responding to our client’s needs. Telephonic conferences are available as are other video conferencing services when necessary.

Currently, all Courts in NH are closed to the public except to address emergency matters. We are currently working with the system to continue to keep our client’s cases moving forward toward appropriate and effective resolutions. We recognize the past few weeks have been challenging and uncertain days are ahead of us. However, we remain here for you and are committed to providing unwavering services to our new and existing clients.

Governor Sununu declared a State of Emergency in New Hampshire on March 13, 2020. Shortly thereafter, on March 26, 2020, Governor Sununu issued and Emergency Stay At home Order, Emergency Order #17, directing all businesses and organizations providing "non-essential" services to close their physical workplaces until May 4, 2020.

From the very first phone call with Tenn And Tenn, until the day my motorcycle accident case was settled, John and his terrific staff have been nothing short of amazing. The motorcycle accident lawyers at Tenn And Tenn are the best injury lawyers in New Hampshire. They updated me frequently on the status of my case, answered all my question and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. Mark P.
Jim Tenn is unlike any other lawyer you will meet. I first met Jim when my life was falling apart... Jim worked tirelessly for me, and on behalf of my two children to get the best possible results in a case fraught with difficulties and unnecessary complications. At what is undoubtedly the lowest point in your life, you need someone who has your back and protects your interests while you're frantically trying to keep things together. Jim Tenn is the man to hire. H.E.
Jim is an excellent and very thorough divorce attorney who examined every possible aspect of my case. I found his knowledge of the law and his courtroom capabilities to be outstanding. He deserves the reputation that he has as one of New Hampshire Super Lawyers. It is very comforting having an attorney whom you can trust during difficult personal issues. Jim Tenn is that lawyer. Thank you for all your help Jim. Anne
