Jan 14, 2019 Snowy day- Our firm is open January 14 – Fairfax criminal lawyer
Snowy day- Our Fairfax law firm is open today
The Fairfax courthouse is open regular hours today, while some nearby courthouses are closed
As a Fairfax criminal lawyer, I know that the Fairfax courthouse tends to err on the side of remaining open rather than closed during snowy weather, and is open regular hours today. On January 13, 2019, numerous inches of beautiful snow accumulated on the ground. As of 7:00 a.m. today, the Fairfax courthouse temperatures are below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. The snowy day will remain until around noon, when the temperature is forecast to rise above 32 degrees.
The Arlington courthouse and some other nearby courthouses are closed today
Fairfax criminal lawyer on contacting your lawyer and the court if delayed by snow or other obstacles to arriving at court
Probably many people are going to have a challenge arriving timely to the Fairfax and other Northern Virginia courts that are open today, particularly those coming from the most snowy areas and who do not get plowed right away. While I cannot tell people with such challenges what to do, I certainly can say that those with lawyers should let them know of any issues arriving to court on time. The Fairfax County court phone numbers are available here. The Fairfax County General District Court’s email address is GDCMail@FairfaxCounty.gov
Clearly, with snowy days the Court needs to consider difficulty for litigants and court personnel in arriving to the court, extra work backlog by needing to reschedule every case that gets cancelled due to weather (together with time handling litigants’ requests to change reset court dates that are not available to them), and any disadvantage to criminal defendants who are held without bond pending their trial dates.
