At Lumbertown Law, we take the health and well-being of our clients, staff and community seriously. During this time of uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 virus and it’s impact, we wanted to keep you informed about Lumbertown Law’s operations and the services we provide.
On March 13, 2020, the County of Muskegon announced that all County offices, including the 14th Circuit Court, 60th District Court and Probate Court, would be closed from Monday, March 16, 2020 until Monday, April 6, 2020. All hearings during that time will be rescheduled, and that rescheduling will be taking place as fast as Court staff can set new dates. As of the date of this post, we have not received rescheduled dates for any of our hearings previously scheduled during the courts’ closure. If you were scheduled to appear in a Muskegon County court with us between March 16-April 5, 2020, we will provide you with the new hearing date as soon as we receive it.
In Ottawa County, the 58th District Court is rescheduling all civil proceedings currently scheduled between March 16, 2020 and April 27, 2020. All civil proceedings in 58th District Court will be scheduled for hearings after April 27, 2020. Oceana County has closed all county offices from Tuesday, March 17, 2020 until Monday, March 23, 2020.
We are also monitoring courts in other counties and statewide offices, and will attempt to provide updates concerning the impact on services of these offices as and when we become aware of any closures or service disruptionsOur office will be open and fully operational to serve our clients’ needs until further notice. However, we may experience schedule modifications and/or short staffing due to school closures and childcare needs. We are prepared to work from home as needed, and will attempt to be available during normal business hours as much as possible.
In our office, we are implementing procedures to sanitize the office more frequently, and we will attempt to make hand sanitizer available to anyone wishing to use it. We appreciate your business and your patience during this uncertain time, and we are committed to assisting you through any disruptions that may arise in connection with COVID-19.
This is certainly a challenging time for this country and the world as a whole. For the latest information on COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control, please visit cdc.gov. For more information concerning COVID-19 in Muskegon County please visit muskegonhealth.net.
