St. Petersburg, Florida, April 1, 2021 St. Petersburg based Gallagher & Associates Law Firm, P.A. was tapped to participate in the state’s new mobile trial program, “Your Courts Are Mobile” (YCAM), taking a page from the nation’s food truck phenomenon.
This pilot program will convert twelve tractor trailer trucks into mobile courtrooms with safe partitions and full COVID risk mitigation. “We are very excited about this new opportunity for trial accessibility for the citizens of Florida and are honored to be selected for such progressive initiative.” said Attorney Charles Gallagher. The mobile courtrooms will include a scaled down version of a traditional court room and will be transported both rural underserved regions and metro centers with overburdened dockets. “We feel that we want to do more meeting people where they are at,” said Terry Burch of the Florida Office of the State Courts Administrator.
Trials are slated to begin in the fall, provided that the state’s positivity rate remains favorable.
