Let’s talk about the Coronavirus


It’s on your mind and it’s definitely on ours, so let’s just talk about it… Let’s talk about the Coronavirus and what that means for you.

The law Offices of Matthew C. Hines is open as usual. The Fulton County, Cobb, and all other Courts are open as usual. In this, as in everything in life, the one thing that is certain is change. (Thank goodness.)

At Hines Law, we have always been and will always be prepared to meet you where you are

Prefer to have meetings via phone or video conferencing?  No problem, we’ve been doing that for years.

Our policy has always been and remains that any member of our team who isn’t feeling well is encouraged to stay home. We can’t do our best work for our clients unless we keep ourselves, each other, and our clients healthy.

Each and every Hines Law team member has a laptop and is able to work remotely, so we can keep helping you not only wherever you are, but also wherever we are. And we have the security and data practices in place to help protect your confidential client information.

We are fully prepared and committed to moving you forward towards your goals.

We will continue to monitor the Coronavirus situation very closely, with the safety of our clients and our team as our top priority.  If the courts decide to close or postpone hearings, our team will make sure to let you know.

At Hines Law, one of our core beliefs is that problems create opportunities, and we believe that this potential problem may create an opportunity to encourage settlement and resolutions out of court.

In the meantime, it bears repeating the recommendations to prevent infection:

  • Regular hand washing
  • Covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing
  • Avoiding close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

In other words, pretty standard stuff.


Here’s some less standard stuff we would ask you to add to your list:

  • Please keep in mind that if schools close there will be a good number of children who lose two meals a day that need those meals. Please consider increasing or beginning donations to local food pantries.
  • Please remember that while our Hines Law team is able to and encouraged to work remotely, many people will still need to go to their jobs in order to pay their bills and may not have adequate child care if their kids can’t go to school. We are aware of that and would love to help make connections between caregivers and those who need care. If you have any contacts to share, we would love to know about them!

If you need assistance with something please ask us, we will do everything we can to offer it. Our phone number is 770-800-2000.
