Covid-19 Hub - How we can help you
In light of the Prime Minister’s statement of 23 March 2020 and ongoing announcements from the Scottish Courts Administration the situation in respect of the Criminal Justice System is becoming a little clearer, albeit subject to change. As matters stand it would seem that all court cases other than the most urgent (such as custody matters) will be adjourned to a future date around August/September 2020.
It is our view that in those circumstances clients who, in normal circumstances, would be expected to attend Court in respect of their cases are no longer required to attend. It remains unclear as to whether the solicitor requires to be present however we will attend to that matter ourselves.
We have prepared some guidance on how the changes that have been implemented, and would ask that you get in touch with our team if you have any questions at all. Call us on 0141 336 2020 or complete our online contact form.
Clearly the kind of activity and work that we as a firm help with will be curtailed while the general lockdown is in place, but myself and my colleagues will remain available to help with advice to clients. The solicitors and administration colleagues will work from home, where possible, however it may be possible to arrange meetings at our offices on a very limited basis.
