Pursuant to the Order of April 6, 2020, from the Supreme Court of Georgia, the statewide Judicial Emergency has been extended until May 13. As such, any court date you have scheduled before May 13, 2020, is likely to be rescheduled.
For potential clients who would prefer to avoid in-person consultations, we are offering consultations by telephone or video conference.
