We Are Here For You

Effective June 29, 2020, W&D will begin its office reentry plan.  All W&D firm members continue to be fully available to you.  Our first priority is the protection of your health and the health of our employees and their families. 

Throughout the pandemic, W&D has maintained office operations with strict CDC guidelines and a core group of essential team members working on-site.  While many members of W&D’s team will continue to work remotely, starting June 29th additional W&D team members will work in the office a few days a week on a staggered shift basis.
