Tanenbaum Keale LLP associate Lori E. Chapin was recently published by the New Jersey Law Journal on how COVID-19 has made people in Newark and around the country wait for their day in court.

Chapin writes, “In the context of civil litigation, delays are often inevitable, and most attorneys have come to expect them—but, in other types of matters where individual liberties are at stake or safety is at issue, delays can result in life-altering consequences.”

She encourages her peers to “look to the local and state bar associations for guidance about pro bono needs around the state” and “connect with non-profit and legal service providers in our communities to see if they have identified specific areas where these organizations are lacking in volunteers.”
