The Silver Lining

| Nov 9, 2020 | Firm News

The old saying goes every cloud has a silver lining.  The pandemic has been a huge cloud on all of us, almost a quarter million deaths in this country, hundreds of thousands more seriously ill, sometimes for weeks, businesses and schools closed, jobs lost, family routines disrupted.  In the legal business, in person client meetings are very difficult and risky, cases have been delayed.

The silver lining, courts have moved ahead with the use of technology to conduct business, routine hearings, and many trials are being handled by video, saving clients money in legal fees, and reducing the disruption of having to appear in court, instead of spending a day travelling to and waiting at a courthouse, clients sign on for their hearing, and as soon as it is over get back to their jobs or families.  My clients are also happy that they do not have to pay me to travel to courthouses and often wait there.  I would not wish this pandemic on anyone, the damage is far greater than any benefit, but, we have to take the good where we can find it.
