Shelter-In-Place Order (03/22/2020)

A number of DBA members have asked whether the Dallas County shelter-in-place order mandates that attorneys work from home during the duration of the Order.  To that end, click here for a copy of the Order.  The only mention in the Order that specifically relates to Dallas County lawyers is the provision in Subsection 2(b)(vi) of the Order which states that:

“Professional services, such as legal or accounting services, when necessary to assist in compliance with legally mandated activities.”

This provision is contained within that section of the Order entitled:  “Essential Services Necessary to Maintain Essential Operations of Residences or Other Essential Businesses.”  In construing such provision, each attorney should read the totality of the Order and come to his or her own conclusion.
