Hello, my name is Dan Romano, for the attorneys of Kalman Samuels. I have got some very good news for you.
The practice field of law has just become a lot more affordable for clients. What is happening now, during the time of COVID -19, is that the courts are taking their precautions and they are encouraging far more virtual court appearances by video conference. It is not something we could do before.
Before the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, attorneys had to go to court to plead – even simple motions. You could be in front of the court for 5 minutes, plead for 10 minutes, even half an hour, and you still had to sit there and wait for your turn. You could wait 2 hours, 4 hours, 6 hours! And clients had to pay for that time, because it is billable hours. We are at court for them, we cannot do anything else, we had to wait for their turn. Now, it is no longer the case.
We line up virtually by computer, we can work on other things while we are waiting for your turn to come up. When your turn comes up, the clerk lets us know. We put the paperwork aside, we turn around, turn on the computer and we can plead simple motions, like postponement, simple safeguard orders, motions for production of documents, all these simple things can be done. We plead for 10 minutes or 20 minutes, and you are only charged for 10 minutes or 20 minutes, because we do not have to go to court.
This makes now, during the COVID -19 pandemic, a very good time to be proceeding with many motions that have been held off, because of the cost or for any other reasons. So, if you are interested in a legal procedure and have been holding off because of the cost, now is a good time.
Give us a call if you need help.
My name is Dan Romano, from the law firm of Kalman Samuels Attorneys.
