The COVID 19 virus has hit the entire country, some areas harder than others. In Georgia, we have been confronted with challenges unlike any other in our lifetimes. Our legal system has been affected just like all other industries and businesses. Fortunately our judges have risen to the occasion by utilizing video conferencing and teleconferencing for legal matters that cannot wait. Just like medical emergencies, the law also has emergency situations. When someone is arrested he or she does not want to be told that they must wait an unknown number of days, weeks or months to learn if and when they can go home again. As a result our Judges here in Chatham County and elsewhere throughout the Coastal area, are having first appearances and bond hearings by video.

We are available by phone, facetime, Facebook messenger or by email. Please do not hesitate to contact if you need help. Not only in criminal matters, but also in personal injury cases as well.
