Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts
The city is hard at work trying to get things back up and running after Hurricane Harvey. The courts, while important, don’t have much priority right now. If you are in need of help, please contact me at 281-318-1277 and I will do everything I can to get your problems settled. Right now, I will help on almost everything Harvey, except insurance claims, on a pro bono basis. For insurance claims, I will take full representation on a contingency basis. If you still are having a hard time contacting the government over benefits or any other disaster problems, please contact me as soon as you can.
Court Opening Information
Most of the courts in the area are trying to reopen as quickly as possible. As of this morning, the Gee Municipal Courthouse on Lubbock street still is flooded but they are trying to restore power. The courts themselves opened this morning, operating in a limited capacity at the satellite courts at Dairy Ashford, Acres Homes, Mykawa, Clear Lake and Kingwood. If you have any scheduling questions please contact those courts. If the CSMART system is still working they should be able to tell you any case information you may need.
The Harris County District and County Courts at Law opened today as well. The courts are resetting the cases that were canceled due to Hurricane Harvey automatically to two weeks past your original court date. If the new date has a conflict, please contact your attorney to reschedule your case to a better time.
Finally, the Harris County Justice courts are open and operating normal as of September 5th, 2017. However, this is excluding Precinct 5-2 with Judge Williams and Precinct 4-1 with Judge Goodwin. Both of those courts are still closed due to flooding. Please contact your attorney or check the odyssey portal to see the status of your cases. If you have any questions concerning these closures, please let me know.
