We will also deliver items in person, upon request. We are in full working capacity during the Coronavirus Pandemic.

6. Are Courts of Law Still Open in My Area? Will My Court Date Be Rescheduled? What if I Can’t Come to Court Because I’m Sick or Quarantined?

Yes, courts are mostly open in California. Every county has treated this pandemic differently. However, generally, courts are open and fully accessible, especially to lawyers. As such, Barhoma Law P.C. has full access to the court system.

Your case may experience some delays due to court congestion and backlog. However, at Barhoma Law, P.C., we seek to protect your rights to a timely and speedy trial, pursuant to the United States Constitution, and we look to efficiently handle cases, as circumstances allow.

7. Will Scheduled Hearings, Depositions, Negotiations, Oral Arguments in Appellate Court, Occur as Planned?

For the most part, yes. While some hearings are being pushed back, generally courts are allowing urgent proceedings to take place. More, generally, the courts are allowing remote appearances. In the right circumstances, we will allow for remote appearance to ensure a case does not sit on court backlog. If, and when, we can, we almost always will first seek in-person proceedings. And only if that is not available, during the Coronavirus pandemic, we will accept a remote appearance.
