Coronavirus and COVID-19 Updates for Williamson County Criminal Clients

Posted by Russell D. Hunt | Mar 17, 2020 | 0 Comments

I am greatly concerned that everyone in our community remains safe and healthy during the Coronavirus outbreak.  I hope that this post will help my Williamson county clients, their families and anyone in our community with criminal court cases to navigate the rapidly changing court appearance requirements as our court system attempts to respond to the crisis.

Health care experts and government officials alike have announced the extreme importance of "Social Distancing" and limiting our exposure to potentially infected individuals.  Avoiding groups larger than 10 people, not going out to eat at restaurants or to bars and clubs, consistent hand washing, and avoiding face-touching are some of the basic recommendations being made in order to at least slow the spread of this dangerous contagion.

Note: the following information is current as of March 20, 2020

I am always available to meet with new clients and current clients by telephone, messaging or videoconference.

If you are ill or have been exposed to someone who might be sick please let me know as soon as possible.  Although most courts are not canceled entirely, there is no question that the courts do not want to contribute to the spreading of the coronavirus.  Be smart, wash your hands, stay home if you can, and stay safe!
