Our Office Is Prepared – A Coronavirus Update
The Supreme Court of Georgia has put a “hold” on all jury trials in the state until at least the end of October 2020. This order also places limitations on certain in-person activities, such as depositions of parties and witnesses. Previous orders of the Supreme Court had placed even more severe restrictions on case activities for the four months between March 13 and July 12, 2020. However, even before COVID-19 was in the headlines, Pope & Howard put systems in place to ensure that we could serve our clients even if our physical office was closed or inaccessible.
- All our lawyers and employees have remote work capabilities to access any file from home.
- Our case materials are electronically stored.
- Our office phones have been re-routed to our home and cell numbers.
- We can electronically file anything in court, including new lawsuits.
- We have continued to push and settle our cases through electronic meetings.
Despite the uncertainty, this difficult time shall pass, and we are ready to continue providing the high-quality legal service that we have provided for over 15 years.
Pope & Howard, P.C.
