FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 10, 2020
My Law Firm, CP Law Chicago LLC, is currently navigating a truly unprecedented situation and health crisis in our nation. Although we are all working from home, at the forefront of our minds is the inextricable connectedness we all share, and how our actions impact one another.
First and foremost, our appreciation and admiration goes our to the health care workers in our community, who are risking their lives at the front lines of this crisis. Our hearts go out to all of the individuals and families impacted directly by the virus, which numbers are growing every day. We also thank everyone who has sacrificed to stay home and abide by the quarantine; your actions are keeping people safe. Though the Courts are closed to all but the most dire of cases, my staff and I are still steadily working behind the scenes to protect the interests of our clients. Given the court closures, cases are moving at a much slower speed at this time. Although there is a serious Covid-19 outbreak at the Cook County Jail, bond modification hearings are as challenging as ever. We will all need to have patience until this crisis resolves and the court system gets back to normal.
Please be advised that my office will contact all clients in advance of the rescheduled court dates. Currently, I am waiting to see the impact of Chief Judge Timothy C. Evans’ emergency court order extending the court closure until May 18, 2020.
In order to best serve our clients in this time of need, I would like to direct you to some virtual resources available during this novel time:
- Center for Disease Control’s COVID-19 Website
- Illinois’ COVID-19 Website
- Illinois’ COVID-19 Hotline – 1 (800) 889-3931
