In the midst of the current concerns regarding the coronavirus, we want our clients to know that the Altick & Corwin Co., L.P.A. office is open for business, but we are restricting visitors from coming to our offices.
Appointments are being handled over the telephone or through facetime and other means of communications.
The attorneys and staff are taking all necessary precautions to keep our employees healthy and physically distanced from each other. As far as we know, none of our employees have tested positive for COVID-19.
We encourage clients to continue to call or email our attorneys. If a call goes to the attorney’s voice mail, the attorney will receive an email of that call. Thus, all calls will be able to be returned to you, but please be patient in waiting for the return call.
We will update you as things change, but in the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
Take care and be safe. Thank you.

Spread the word about our government’s third branch

You’ve seen the startling statistics before. According to a survey by the American Bar Association, when asked barely half of respondents struggle to identify our three branches of government, or correctly identify the core functions of the judicial branch.

The Ohio State Bar Association has produced a new video titled “Going to Court.” The story follows an animated character who explores the third branch of government and some of the differences between the state and federal court systems. The video is available on the OSBA YouTube channel, and I hope you’ll consider sharing the video, especially with students in grades 5-12. Here are some ways you can do that:

  • Use the video as part of a speaking engagement at your local school;
  • Post a link to the video on your law firm’s website; and/or
  • Share the video link on your social media network, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

As lawyers and judges trained in the law, we are uniquely qualified to educate the public about our court system. I urge you to use the video to spread the word about our vital third branch of government.

Judge Patrick F. Fischer
OSBA President

Funding for the video provided by the Ohio State Bar Foundation.
