Purple Law Firm’s Response and Policies
With the current state of emergency due to the outbreak of Corona Virus (COVID-19) in-person appointments and other meetings may be subject to cancellation or rescheduling without advance notice. Our current plan is to continue to operate as normal, while monitoring the ongoing situation, and will make adjustments as necessary. At Purple Law Firm our number one goal is to keep all of our clients and staff members safe at this time and to minimize exposure to this virus. We are taking steps to ensure that our office is safe for all persons entering our business, including extra cleaning of our office and reducing the number of persons in our office at one time.
But, we need your assistance in assuring the safety and well-being of all persons having contact with our law firm and staff members, other persons, attorneys and court staff.
Notify us immediately if you are experiencing symptoms of Corona virus or flu, including fever, or if you have been exposed to any person who is confirmed to have COVID-19, so we can reschedule your appointment or change it to a telephonic appointment.
By order of the Tennessee Supreme Court in person hearings in all State and local courts are prohibited until March 31, 2020. There are exceptions for certain cases such as orders if protection and certain criminal cases, and of course emergency issues. If an emergency situation arises, we will communicate with the appropriate court and take whatever steps which are deemed appropriate by us and the court.
If you have a court appearance scheduled during this time we will be working with the court to reschedule as soon as possible. Please keep in mind all persons having business with the courts are in the same situation, so your patience will be greatly appreciated.
In the event that the state of emergency worsens, and/or changes the ability of our law firm to maintain our physical office open for clients, we will adapt to continue to serve your needs. This may include operating exclusively through telephone/video conferencing and/or staff working remotely. Rest assured that Purple Law Firm will continue to serve your legal needs as best as possible during this challenging time.
