Telephonic Hearings: Mitigate the Impact of COVID-19 Closures

Mar 18, 2020 by Jana

Many courts across the country are closing their doors to slow down the spread of  Coronavirus COVID-19.

Our clients feel the burden of rescheduling their hearings, juggling their calendars, and trying to protect their employees’ health. The already busy courts are adding to their backlogs.

We are compiling a list of courts that allow telephonic appearances. Right now, the courts that are impacted but allow you to appear telephonically are marked dark green on this list:

With the COVID-19 crisis, we see a growing number of courts that enable telephonic appearances. We will keep you informed about all the new developments.

Our staff updates the list as soon as they get the information to bring you real-time data. We do the research but also rely on our clients and appearance attorneys who know their local situation. We are grateful for our extended team!

Can I post telephonic hearings through Docketly?

Absolutely! The process is quick and easy – simply check the box and add a phone number.

 

We understand the pause in court activities creates economic stress for some of our clients. That’s why we offer all telephonic hearings at a 50% lower price than an in-person appearance.
