As a firm, we are carefully following updates regarding COVID-19 while still working on behalf of our clients.
The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia issued a Judicial Emergency Order staying all non-essential court hearings and judicial proceedings in Georgia through April 13, 2020 due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus throughout the state and across the country. The Courts are remaining open for filing and other essential functions but have limited public access by postponing all non-emergency matters. The federal courts in Georgia have issued similar Judicial Emergency Orders.
Despite the Orders limiting court proceedings, there is a great deal of legal work that can still be done.
As a result, we are taking precautionary measures and making necessary accommodations to handle work on behalf of our clients, and using technology to handle work remotely where necessary.
We are open for business, but our physical office will have only essential person-to-person meetings beginning March 25, 2020, with staff otherwise accessible by phone or email.
