All of our employees understand that they should not be working if they are sick, and in particular, that they should not be at our office while sick.
To further protect our employees and our clients we are encouraging meetings by phone, FaceTime, Skype or similar means. We have represented clients from out of state and out of the country in this manner for many years. Our clients often prefer this to traveling to our office.
We are also working with the divorce and civil courts, as well as opposing counsel, to arrange court appearances, settlement conferences, and other litigation events remotely whenever possible.
To further protect the health of all concerned, all of our attorneys and staff have the technology and capability to work on cases and with clients from home as well as at the office. Your phone calls will be returned. Your emails will be answered. Your case deadlines will be met.
The days ahead may be a challenge. We do not yet know the extent to which particular courts will curtail trials or even the extent to which Holmes, Diggs & Sadler will have clients and other guests come to our office. But we will continue to work to take care of our client’s cases and to take on new matters and clients. We will simply manage your case in less traditional, more technology-driven ways, that are safer for your health and ours.
Attorney Cindy Diggs of Holmes, Diggs & Sadler, was recently interviewed by KTRK-TV in a segment about a Houston woman who was being cyberstalked by her ex-husband. The woman says that her ex-husband had every text, every picture, and knew exactly where she was at all times. Diggs indicated that people usually find out they are victims of cyberstalking when they realize that the other person knows things that they shouldn’t know. Learn more by watching the video below.
Diggs said that, despite whether people feel positively or negatively about the ruling, it is likely the most significant Supreme Court decision of this generation, as it opens up the right to marry to an entire group of people for whom this right was previously unavailable.
On Friday alone, the Harris County Clerk’s office began putting the new law into practice by issuing about 50 marriage certificates to newly-eligible couples.
According to Diggs, her law firm and other family lawyers have already dealt with custody issues involving same-sex couples. “Now of course, same-sex couples will be able to marry and they will be able to divorce, whether they were married in this state or in some other state,” Diggs stated.
