Zimmerman & Associates Operating Policies during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Dear Clients, Colleagues, and Friends,
Please note that the Courts are NOT currently closed. The courts have delayed non-essential hearings and issued Emergency Judicial Orders that lay out various policies and procedures for how they will move forward. New cases may still be filed and current cases will still move forward. As such, we will remain open to assist you with all of your legal needs. During this difficult time, we have implemented a few new policies and procedures that will help us serve you better.
• We are OPEN – Our office is currently open, and whether you are a current client, or potential client, Zimmerman & Associates lawyers and staff will be responsive and available to help you 24/7.
• Virtual meetings – We will continue to be in contact with you as we diligently help you with all of your legal needs. We also remain committed to the safety and health of our clients and staff and are adhering to the recommendations of our public health officials to minimize the risk to those we employ and serve. Therefore, we are available to meet with you through electronic and virtual means wherever possible as a protective measure. We can be reached 24/7 by phone, web chats or online inquiries.
• Upcoming hearings/court dates – If you have an upcoming hearing or court date, depending on the County, it is possible that it has been postponed for at least 30 days. Some Judges/Counties will be proceeding with hearings as scheduled, but will be doing so virtually through Zoom or Skype. It is possible that the court may still proceed with your hearing as scheduled. PLEASE contact our office regarding any concern you may have related to the postponement of any court hearing or scheduled event.
Our office is committed to protecting our clients and their rights through these uncertain times while being socially responsible. Please contact us and let us know how we may assist you.
