Dear Friends and Clients of The Law Offices of R.F Wittmeyer, Ltd.:
We want to assure you that during this difficult time due to the COVID-19 virus, our law firm is continuing to serve the needs of our clients and of our community. Our office remains open for business, but is staffed by just a few of us. To protect the safety of our employees, many of us are working remotely, and very few visitors are entering the office. However, our attorneys, paralegals, and staff are available and ready to assist you – as we have learned, much can be accomplished without an in-person meeting.
As of the beginning of July, most of the local courts in civil matters, are now holding their court calls by Zoom conference. We are also continuing to move our clients’ cases forward by conducting most depositions by Zoom conference. Things could change, but right now, we do not expect any jury trials in Cook County, Lake County or DuPage County to take place in civil cases in 2020. However, we are continuing to prepare cases for trial or settlement, and we have conducted several mediations, also by Zoom.
Do not hesitate to call us or email us with your questions or concerns, or if you would like to discuss a new case, we remain available to address your needs.
We hope that each of you and your families stay safe and healthy during this challenging time.
