The Cohen & Winters COVID-19 ResponseMarch 16, 2020 1:47 pm Leave your thoughts
Our attorneys and support staff will remain in regular communication with clients and other relevant parties. We will be able to continue providing all necessary legal services to the same standard you have come to know and expect.
Important Information About Court Hearings
We will review all upcoming hearings to determine which are continued. For those, we will temporarily move the them in our system calendar to April 4th as a placeholder. As the courts reschedule, we will update our system to reflect their new dates.
The courts will still hold “emergency” hearings. However, judges can decide whether to do these hearings by telephone or video.
For the types of cases we handle, there are several common types that may be considered emergency. One type for incarcerated defendants including bail hearings where a defendant may be detained. Another are stalking and restraining order hearings. A third is child-related emergency orders. This is NOT a complete list. The full state court notice is here and the federal notice is here.
We Continue to Support You Throughout the COVID-19 Crisis
If you have any doubts about whether you will need to appear for an upcoming hearing, or any other questions or concerns whatsoever, please call or email us. Our team is here to answer your questions and support your legal needs during this uncertain and unprecedented situation. We anticipate a higher call volume during this transition. Please leave a voicemail if you don’t get through and our staff will return your call promptly.
We are thinking of the health and safety of everyone in our orbit and beyond, including our valued clients. In dealing with COVID-19, please follow the recommendations of the health authorities. We want to all get through this as quickly and safely as possible.
