The Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court, Maureen O’Connor, gave a press conference today about Court access and precautions regarding COVID-19. Courts will remain open although access may be limited. Access and precautions will be determined on a court by court basis. Many Courts have already issued specific orders. They are all linked here at the Ohio Judicial Conference website.
Of note, Clerk’s Offices are still open for the filing of new actions and motions on existing cases.
For my existing clients, please don’t hesitate to contact my office with questions regarding your impending hearing date. Our office remains open, although we are taking all of the appropriate disinfecting and social distancing precautions.
We are continuing to have in person office appointments, but also offering FaceTime, Skype and telephone appointments.
The legal process might have slowed down, but all of our lives go on.
We wish you all the best of health.
