April 21, 2020 – Houston, Texas – HCCLA remains steadfast in its commitment to ensuring the safety of our clients, members, their families, and those who work at the courthouse. Given the current crisis and available technology, in almost every case a phone, an email, or remote technology can and should be utilized instead of requiring in-person appearances. We will continue to assist the Courts in developing methods to utilize available technology to ensure that no one’s health or safety is placed in jeopardy.
“We need an immediate solution that protects all individuals involved in the Harris County criminal justice system and stops the community spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19)”, said Neal Davis, President of the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association (HCCLA).
Davis sent a follow-up letter from last week to all Harris County Criminal Court Judges, as well as to Presiding Judge Susan Brown, Eleventh Judicial Administrative Region. See letter below:
