As the coronavirus outbreak continues we all face the difficult challenges that it presents on a daily basis. As some of you may know the Courts have reduced cases to those that are absolutely necessary and urgent in nature. This means that many cases have been adjourned with a date yet to be fixed. As yet we do not know how long the Courts will continue to operate in this fashion and therefore cannot provide any guidance at this stage as to when your case is likely to be re-fixed but we will endeavour to keep you updated as to any new developments.
If you are in custody your case is likely to proceed and we will ensure that you are properly represented by our staff. As some of you will be aware the prisons have stopped any visits in an attempt to reduce the spread of the virus. This too applies to any legal visits.
We know that you will be anxious as to how your case is progressing. We would like to reassure you that we are able to speak to clients over the telephone and provide ongoing support and assistance. It is important that you provide us with up to date contact details so that we can communicate with you about your case over the coming weeks. We understand that these are difficult times that we all face but we are here to help you.
