COVER STORY: After 28 years, Takacs McGinnis Elder Care Law Moves to a New Home
Takacs McGinnis staff members gather with clients, family members, and friends of the firm for a ribbon cutting ceremony on August 6.
In July, Takacs McGinnis Elder Care Law relocated from an older home on Walton Ferry Road to a spacious building at 104 Wyncrest Way in Hendersonville. The move, which wraps up a more than twelve-month construction process, represents the beginning of an exciting new chapter for the firm.
The firm worked with builder Milton Curtis and interior designer Trinity Scharett to make their vision a reality.
On August 6, the firm celebrated with an official ribbon cutting ceremony with the Hendersonville Chamber of Commerce and food from The Beached Pig. The event was held both indoors and outdoors to better accommodate social distancing and staggered tours of the new office space. Tents and tables were provided by Ultimate Party Super Store.
For the open house event on August 6, the yard was festooned with signs provided by Sign Gypsys.
“It is a dream come true to see the practice that I began in the early 1990s grow to what it has become today,” said founding partner and attorney Tim Takacs. “At the end of the day, we help people take care of their moms and dads. There is nothing more rewarding than that.”
Coming in at around 7,500 sq. ft, the building has three separate office suites, with Takacs McGinnis occupying about 4,200 sq. ft. Two smaller suites are available for rent by other businesses. “Though we haven’t finalized who the tenants will be for the other two suites, our goal is to rent those spaces to businesses whose products and services benefit our clients,” said Chris Johnson, attorney and partner at the firm.
“When Tim and I had this dream, our vision was to invest in a building to better serve our clients,” said attorney and partner Barbara McGinnis. “We are excited to expand our footprint in Middle Tennessee. Having a larger space allows us to host more community and professional education programs, and other special events. Renting office space to other complimentary businesses like financial planners and CPAs will offer clients a one-stop shop for most of their estate planning needs.”
The modern ADA-compliant design of the new building increases the comfort factor for clients and employees with push-button entryways, a larger waiting room, and spacious offices to more comfortably accommodate clients and the family members that they wish to have present. Coincidently, the larger space also provides more social distancing for both guests and staff so everyone feels comfortable walking through the door.
Hendersonville Mayor Jamie Clary, Takacs McGinnis partners Tim Takacs and Barbara McGinnis, and Hendersonville Chamber President/CEO Kathleen Hawkins pause for a photo op at the firm's open house celebration on August 6.
With the larger space, the firm has resumed face-to-face meetings with all the CDC recommended guidelines in place. All meeting spaces are routinely sanitized between client visits including frequently touched surfaces, chairs, and doorknobs. All workstations are cleaned at the close of business each day. To protect yourself and our team we ask that all guests wear a protective mask or face covering, maintain a six foot distance from others, and/or stay home if you have a fever, cough, are symptomatic, or have been around anyone with a confirmed Covid-19 diagnosis in the last 14 days. Our current technology allows us to meet “virtually” with our clients who are unwell or who would prefer not to travel to our offices. We are committed to serving our community and our clients as this rapidly moving situation unfolds. We look forward to seeing everyone in person again.
