In consideration of the government guidance for COVID-19, our office is moving appointments to virtual settings either through phone or video conferencing. We are still taking consultations and meeting with clients through these methods. If you believe your case requires in-person interaction with an attorney, please call the office and we will work with you on a case-by-case basis to ensure that we comply with required social distancing. Please note that the courts throughout Northern Virginia have announced that with the exception of emergency hearings and protective orders, all court appearances through April 26, 2020 are continued and will be rescheduled when the courts resume operations. It is possible that this date will be further extended. If you have questions about your specific case, please contact the attorney assigned to your case.
