On March 22, 2020, Dr. Amy Acton, director of the Ohio Department of Health, ordered that effective 11:50 p.m. on March 23, 2020, all persons are to stay at home or place of residence, unless they fall into one of the listed exceptions. Criminal defense attorneys are one of those exceptions.
At The Law Offices of Saia & Piatt, Inc., there are many ways the attorneys can provide effective and aggressive representation during this time of physical distancing. With the cancellation and rescheduling of hearings, you can be assured the discovery on cases is being reviewed and motions and briefs are being drafted. There are ongoing opportunities to communicate with prosecutors or other law enforcement officials regarding key aspects of cases.
Criminal defense attorneys are going to court and to the local jails to represent individuals in these trying times. If you, a family member or friend have been charged with an offense, there is no better time to engage the services of a criminal defense attorney to ensure all constitutional and statutory rights are protected.
During this time, people are still facing criminal charges in court throughout Ohio. Do not let COVID-19 prevent you from having the best defense possible now or when the “Stay at Home” order is lifted.
Currently, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Saia & Piatt, Inc., can communicate with clients via telephone or other video conferencing applications. These types of communications can also be used to have free initial consults with prospective clients.
