Recently, Attorney Jonathan Dichter was interviewed by Intoxalock for its 'Ask an Attorney' series. The company provides and installs ignition interlock devices (IIDs) for individuals ordered to meet this requirement as part of their DUI cases. Currently, the 'Ask an Attorney' series has been asking lawyers about changes and updates in processes because of the COVID-19 pandemic and how the lawyers have adjusted their operations to continue to help clients through these unprecedented times.
Attorney Dichter told Intoxalock that when the pandemic first started, his firm quickly made the transition to working from home. To make the change as smooth as possible for clients, he and his team reached out to every single one. They let their clients know that, although the pandemic has disrupted society, his firm, DUI Heroes, was still available to them and ready to answer any questions they have about their case. The team also began holding meetings through phone and teleconferencing apps.
In response to COVID-19 and to slow the spread of the disease, various orders were enacted that effected court operations and thereby the processing of DUI cases. Recognizing that many clients would want to know how the changes would impact their trials, Attorney Dichter and his staff contacted, and remain in contact, with the courts so that they have the most up-to-date information to give to their clients.
Attorney Dichter reminded individuals required to have IIDs on their vehicles that, even during this time, they must still comply with this order.
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected various areas of society, including the judicial system, leaving many confused about how to proceed with their cases.
