Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) January 19, 2017
Over one million people are expected to arrive in the nation’s capital for this weekend’s events, prompting several establishments to obtain licenses enabling them to operate around the clock and serve alcohol beyond normal hours.
To prepare for this influx of activity, the city is deploying 3,000 extra police and Secret Service officers in addition to 5,000 National Guardsmen.
With potential confusion about what behaviors are or are not permitted during the inaugural events and gatherings to follow, heightened social and political tensions, and a massively increased police presence, the law firm of Price Benowitz LLP will maintain regular operating hours and will be available on call around the clock to provide legal services to District locals and visitors alike.
Despite being in the heart of Washington’s “red zone,” where closures due to heightened security will be most prominent, Price Benowitz will be open on Inauguration Day, and attorneys will be available for Saturday court hearings and consultations in the event of an arrest or any personal matter requiring legal assistance.
The firm’s Chinatown office is located at 409 7th Street, NW #100, just blocks from the Capitol building, Courthouse, and White House.
