How COVID-19 Has Impacted Our Courts

COVID-19 has changed the world in many ways. Nonetheless, we are all adapting, including the court system. While the physical courthouses are open only for limited purposes, the Probate and Family Court system is operating. Turco Legal is taking on new clients and moving cases forward to resolution. We’re mediating and negotiating cases remotely through videoconference and telephone sessions. We’re also holding court hearings by Zoom meeting and phone.

Turco Legal has always invested in technology to manage our cases efficiently and to maximize collaboration among our team. We continue to do so through the COVID-19 health crisis. The current climate presents challenges most of us have not experienced. Nevertheless, we remain steadfast in our commitment to delivering excellent results to our clients.
