WE HOPE THAT YOU ARE WELL AND HAPPY!
The personal injury lawyers at Schmidt Salita Law Team extend their concern for your safety and well-being during the days of the Covid pandemic.
We are happy to report that our staff of lawyers and legal assistants have been surviving quite well with minimal effects.
The Schmidt Salita Law Team has been able to continue to preform at a high rate of productivity using social distancing and remote work. We have found that, in many respects, our productivity is equal to or greater than before. We have adopted new efficiency methods that we intend to incorporate into our sytem going forward.
The legal system has adopted the use of Zoom technology that has improved efficiency with regard to client contacts, court hearings, depositions, arbitrations and medications.
STATE OF THE COURT SYSTEM.
Almost 100% of the jury trials in civil cases have been shut down-and a big backlog is developing. Criminal cases have the first priority because of the US Constitution requiring a speedy trial in criminal cases. However, pre-trial proceedings have been moving along quite efficiency and many cases are getting ready for trial when the court calendar opens up for civil jury trials. We do not expect many, if any, civil trials to start happening before mid-summer.
STATE OF SETTLEMENTS.
We are finding that the value of settlements for our clients remians high during the pandemic. The mediators that we use report that that is true generally.
PERSONAL CONTACT WITH CLIENTS.
The Schmidt Salita Law Team values personal contact with our clients. Simply stated, WE MISS SEEING YOU!! Keep in touch. We will be back together again soon.
ACCEPTING NEW CASES.
We remain fully open to accepting new cases. We continue to provide the highest quality of legal services to all types of injuries, including workplace injuryies (workers compensation caes), car accidents and motor vehicle crashes, chemical exposure claims (including lead poisoning), defective product cases, and special expertese with traumatic brain injuries and concussions.
