State Judicial Functions Suspended through May 13, 2020
The Honorable Harold D. Melton, Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court, declared a Statewide Judicial Emergency based upon the COVID-19 epidemic suspending all court functions in all courts in all counties with certain limited exceptions as defined in the Order. The suspension was set to expire on April 13, 2020. On April 6, 2020, Chief Justice Melton extended the Statewide Judicial Emergency until May 13, 2020.
While this suspension and the backlog that will inevitably result when court resumes will present varying degrees of inconvenience for our clients we are determined to get things moving again as quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience.
Our law office is closed to the public, but we are continuing to work from the office each day based upon the fact that Governor Kemp’s Executive Order has deemed law firms to be an essential business. We are accessible by email and telephone, and we are regularly scheduling consultations with new clients by teleconference. Furthermore, we have a drop slot on the front door of our office which may be utilized to drop off letters, documents and small packages.
We have attached links to the Declarations received from Chief Justice Melton this afternoon.
