Following a shutdown of Missouri courts because of the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the Missouri Supreme Court is allowing Missouri courts to begin re-opening on May 18. Individual courts will determine for themselves when to re-open and what in-person activities will be permitted. We will notify our clients individually about whether they should attend their next court date.

In the meantime, we remain OPEN and hard at work on our clients’ cases. Although we cannot conduct “open office hours” or in-person meetings at this time, we are meeting with clients and prospective clients by video conference. Our telephones will continue to be answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
