Lepley - COVID 19 Notice
As we all know, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is affecting our daily activity throughout the country. In a time of so much uncertainty, it is common to look for a sense of reassurance as well as sources of strength. We know that legal issues can make things even more stressful during times like these. During this unprecedented time, Lepley, Engelman, Yaw & Wilk stands ready to help.
Since Governor Wolf added Legal Services to the list of essential businesses, we will remain ready to assist our clients and answer new inquiries. All three of our offices are operating within the boundaries set forth by the Governor and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and can assist you via phone or email. All of our attorneys and most of our staff are working remotely from home to serve you while doing our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Currently, courthouses are closed to the public and are running with limited staff. Filings are being made via a box outside the courthouse.
For criminal law proceedings, most hearings have been continued through late April and any other hearings that come up as “emergency” are being done by phone. This would pertain to any incarcerated defendant. For urgent criminal law needs only, please contact George Lepley at 570-419-6190.
All family law and personal injury matters are being done by phone. Please contact our office to schedule a conference call.
For over 41 years, we have been committed to servicing our clients, even in the most challenging of times. We understand the next several weeks will be difficult for everyone. Our hearts go out to everyone who has been impacted by this global crisis, but we will get through this together.
We also want to express our sincere appreciation for healthcare workers, law enforcement, and first responders. We cannot overstate the importance of what your efforts mean to all of us! Your have courageously placed yourselves on the front line and we intend to do whatever we can to continue to serve our community as well!
