Good morning –
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the state and federal courts in Cook County and the surrounding collar counties, as well as the courts in Northwest Indiana have suspended civil jury trials for the next 2-4 weeks. Now, Governor Pritzker has issued to Illinois residents a "stay-at-home" order until April 7, 2020.
Johnson & Bell will continue to monitor this situation and share updates as necessary.
Rest assured that every attorney and assistant at Johnson & Bell has the technological capability to continue working on all client matters seamlessly. Our attorneys and staff have been working remotely for most of the past week. We are available to assist, provide counsel, handle new matters, and address other client needs as requested and required.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or the Johnson & Bell attorney with whom you work if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to help you and your colleagues.
Please stay safe. We are confident we can work through this together.
