Here to Provide Legal Services in These Unprecedented Times

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19), has affected various aspects of our lives. Social distancing and limitations on mass gathering recommendations, as well as "safer at home" directives, have impacted our ability to interact in society as we once had. Many processes in the criminal justice system were adjusted to comply with recommendations while also allowing those involved in legal matters to handle their cases.

The changes in the criminal justice system might have left you with several questions about how to move forward with your case. Don't panic. Just because the virus is here does not mean our team at the Fleming Law Group is gone. We understand that these are difficult times, and we are here not only to provide answers about your case but also to represent you if you have been charged with a crime.

In Florida, the Courts will remain open for certain proceedings, including:

  • The first hearing after an arrest
  • Bond reduction motions
  • Arraignments
  • Juvenile detention hearings to decide whether a child should be released from custody
  • Violations of quarantine or isolation order

We are also representing individuals in the following types of noncriminal cases that are still having hearings:

  • Petitions for temporary or permanent injunctions
  • Risk protection orders
  • Marchman Act cases
  • Baker Act cases

If you are facing a criminal or noncriminal legal matter, know that our St. Petersburg criminal defense lawyers are here to help.

Please call us at (727) 202-4858 or contact us online to discuss your case. We are committed to ensuring you are comfortable and protecting your health, which is why we can visit with you via video, phone, email, or text.
