Dedicated Criminal Defense Attorneys Providing Safe Legal Solutions Throughout Oregon
In early 2020, the COVID-19 virus severely impacted nearly every industry in the country, including how our Oregon courts and overall legal system operated.
As businesses and municipalities transformed the way they worked, beginning with most employees moving from their office to working remotely from home, countless changes would continue to sweep the legal industry over the next year.
Our law firm quickly adapted to ensure our clients were aware of their legal rights, options, and obligations during the pandemic, so they had full access to our services and were protected from exposure to the virus while remaining consistently informed about the ongoing changes directly affecting their cases.
Over one year later, our criminal defense attorneys at Mark C. Cogan, P.C. remain committed to providing quality legal solutions for people who are facing criminal charges throughout Oregon by fluidly adapting new virus protocols and prevention resources as they become available.
Using Technology to Focus on Today and Look Toward the Future
Our law firm has remained open for business throughout the COVID-19 emergency, demonstrating resiliency and dedication to continue serving our clients despite the hardships that have impacted Oregonians’ day-to-day lives and long-term plans to proactively confront their legal challenges.
Over the past 12 months, our criminal defense attorneys have employed technological solutions that allowed us to continue to serve our clients’ overall legal defense needs, without exposing our clients or ourselves to the risk of infection.
Zoom meetings have effectively allowed our attorney-client partnerships to flourish through high-quality confidential communication that produced results inside and outside the courtroom.
The same is true for our clients’ ongoing court hearings.
Instead of requiring in-person attendance, many courts are permitting attorneys and clients to appear remotely for routine court hearings — except during jury trials — using phone and video technology.
As the courts continue to operate remotely, with more in-person appearances resuming in the upcoming months, our Oregon criminal defense attorneys will provide the ongoing technological and/or required attendance solutions our clients need to pursue success.
In-Office Collaboration Generates Real-Time Legal Criminal Defense Strategies
After effectively working from home over the past year, advances in virus prevention and response have allowed our Oregon criminal defense attorneys to return to the office full time, emerging from the state-mandated lockdown stronger than ever.
Returning to the office is a welcomed opportunity to collaborate with some of the sharpest minds in criminal law, which allows our attorneys to implement top-notch defense strategies for our clients.
Our commitment to pursuing the best results for each of our cases directly translates into solutions from all the attorneys in our law firm who have received the COVID-19 vaccine and can safely interact with clients in our offices, neutral locations, detention facilities, and throughout our Oregon criminal courts.
Recently, two of our Oregon criminal defense attorneys and a Trial Assistant traveled to defend a client during a non-jury trial, where all COVID-19 safety protocols were implemented and followed in conjunction with our vigorous defense, which allowed us to triumphantly — and safely — walk away with a win.
At Mark C. Cogan, P.C., our attorney depth and support staff is purposefully designed to be sufficiently robust, allowing teams to deploy to different cities throughout Oregon and defend clients on trial, while keeping sufficient staff in our offices to accommodate the needs of other clients.
As the vaccine continues to be made available to the public, each of our attorneys and support staff will be immunized to continue to provide important legal defense strategies safely for all throughout Oregon.
