With little fanfare, the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court now allows Maryland attorneys to appear by phone for nonevidentiary motions, status conferences, and other pretrial proceeds, saving the long drive for many Maryland personal injury attorneys to Annapolis.
Counsel is required to make a request to use CourtCall at least five days before the attorney’s scheduled appearance. Naturally, the court can reject the request if it so chooses. For more details, call CourtCall’s program administrator at 888-882-6878
In spite of the $50 cost (for a phone call!) to use CourtCost, this will be a blessing for personal injuries lawyers in Maryland who are required to drive great distances for a 10 minute pro forma hearing.
