COVID 19 Updates

COVID-19 UPDATE: JUNE 1, 2020:
Reopening PhasesTo our valued Clients and Colleagues,

With the Stay-at-Home order lifted and Allegheny County moving through the Governor’s phases of reopening, our professionals continue to provide legal services remotely.  As of June 2nd, Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas has amended its Emergency Operations Plan. All court facilities will be open to the public with restrictions:

• Persons must wear masks to enter and remain in any court facility. Persons who are not compliant with this order, will be required to leave the court facility.
• Persons who enter any court facility shall comply with CDC and Health Department recommendations for social distancing as well as any signage posted in or on court facilities or instructions from a judge, judicial officer, Sheriff’s deputy, police officer, constable, building security, or court employee.
• Sheriff’s deputies, police, constables, and/or building security are authorized to deny admission or remove a person who is visibly ill or who is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. Any person excluded or removed for health concerns shall be provided with information (telephone number or email address) to enable them to initiate, participate in, or complete necessary essential court business/functions during the judicial emergency.

The Family Division Regional Offices located in Penn Hills and Castle Shannon shall remain closed to the public. All scheduled conferences and/or hearings shall be conducted telephonically.
Only persons with essential court business are guaranteed admission into any court facility, subject to the above restrictions. Friends and family members may be required to wait outside the facility.  Court proceedings shall be conducted primarily through Microsoft Teams or pursuant to the protocol for teleconference hearings issued by the Court. Other audio or teleconference methods may be employed.
