Court Appearances Service
Court Appearances for Attorneys
NOTE: These services are provided ONLY for Attorneys licensed to practice in California.
Thank you for your interest in our attorney appearance service! This is an introduction to the court appearance services we provide to stand in and represent your client for you at those times when you just can’t get to a court appearance yourself!
Below you will find links to our current pricelist and our appearance scheduling form. If you wish, we also have a credit card payment authorization form for those clients who prefer the convenience of having us keep their credit card information on file, and you will find a link for that form as well.
When requesting court coverage, we ask that you use our form to submit the appearance information and return it to us by fax. We will call you during our business hours (8:30am – 4:30pm) to confirm receipt of faxed requests. If you have an emergency that necessitates giving us the information while you are away from your office, appearance information can be given to us by text to 408-309-5137 or verbally* at 408-295-2105. First priority will be given to covering appearances submitted in writing on our form simply because this format can be most quickly and accurately given to the attorney who will be handling your matter for you.
Please note that we need a separate form filled out for each appearance and that the form must be completed in full each time. If you have any questions about how to fill out the form, please contact our office during our business hours. Again, as always, last minute appearances can be phoned* or texted to our office and we will fill out a form for you.
We ask a minimum of ½ business day’s notice for appearances in Santa Clara County and, if your appearance is outside of Santa Clara County, we ask a minimum of a full business day’s advance notice. However, due to the nature of the business, emergency appearances are to be expected and we will always do our best to find coverage for you – and if we cannot, we will let you know immediately. As an added reminder, our office is closed during Santa Clara County court holidays.
Thank you again for giving us the opportunity to be of service to you, and we look forward to your continued business in the future!
P.S. If you are available to occasionally make appearances for us, particularly if you appear outside of Santa Clara County, please contact us! Thank you!
*Appearance information should always be submitted in writing and Eben Kurtzman is not responsible for errors in appearance information given verbally.
Once filled out please email them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
