What Happens to My Case When Courts Are Shut Down?April 10, 2020
COVID19 Office Response
Our firm has new protocols in place to protect our clients, employees and society. We are staying open regular business hours to keep the highest level of service to our clients, but will be implementing digital tools to meet with our clients during this crisis. These are temporary measures and are intended to keep everyone safe. Below are our new protocols:
- We are available by phone, text and email, as always
- We are holding video conferences with clients via Zoom or Facetime
- We are utilizing Docusign online to obtain electronic signatures, to use for all documents that do not require a notary (which is still required to be be done in person).
Again, these are temporary measures we are implementing in order to provide a safe office environment and to protect our clients.
In these times of uncertainty and fear, we are here to assist our clients and community in whatever way we can. The State government has directed the closure of all non-essential retail businesses effective at 8:00 p.m. on the evening of March 23, 2020.
Our office is not a retail business, nor do we convey product to the public. We are here to provide information, access and guidance regarding the legal system and individuals rights. We feel that such access is essential to the fabric of our nation.
We will continue to provide services to our clients and community throughout this crisis, so long as we can do so in a safe manner for our clients, staff and community. We are still meeting with current and potential clients via telephonic, email and electronic means.
At present we are only meeting with individuals in-person on a case-by-case basis, if such meeting is required by absolute necessity or emergency.
Our courts are restricted to essential actions statewide until April 13th, per orders of the Kentucky Supreme Court, and it is likely that the closure will be extended further. Our office is still electronically filing pleadings and court documents, as well as progressing in cases regarding all matters which can be handled without actual courtroom presence.
We are still here; we are still available in these times of difficulty and instability. Our office has made some changes to protect our clients, staff and community; but we remain committed to our clients and community, if you need us call.
If you need us, we are here, call us at (859)209-2101.
