In the midst of the social and economic upheaval caused by the current COVID-19 pandemic, many individuals are adjusting to a new normal. While at the time of this writing, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has not issued mandatory closures for non-essential businesses, many have had to close to put the recommended social distancing into effect.
However, life continues for the residents of Georgia, and that includes important legal matters. You still have rights, even during this unprecedented health crisis. Conley Griggs Partin LLP is a 21st century law firm with old-fashioned values of service and reliability. We are still on the job, defending your rights and providing legal counsel and representation in essential matters before the Georgia courts.
Essential Legal Proceedings During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Two Amendments to the United States Constitution guarantee a citizen’s right to due process of law. Even during a health crisis like this one, essential legal proceedings are still being carried out. Each judicial district is carrying out vital operations, many by teleconferencing when necessary. Emergency orders differ from circuit to circuit, including what matters are still being handled, and how and scheduling procedures.
The statewide judicial emergency that followed the declaration of a state health emergency remains in effect through April 13 at this time. Matters the court will still deal with include those necessary to protect liberty, health and safety. The order also granted clemency or relief from several statutory judicial deadlines.
Fulton and Colquitt Counties, the Atlanta Judicial Circuit and the Southern Judicial Superior Court Circuit are all operating on a limited basis to handle essential matters. Conley Griggs Partin LLP is in communication with all relevant courts and we receive regular updates on operating procedures and relevant proceedings.
