North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper signed an Executive Order to modify North Carolina’s Stay At Home order, and transition to Phase 1 of slowly easing certain COVID-19 restrictions effective tomorrow, Friday, May 8th at 5 p.m.

What is different about Phase 1?

Phase 1 of the Executive Order does the following:
• Eliminates the distinction between essential and non-essential businesses;
• Allows most retail businesses (with exceptions) that can comply with specific requirements to open at 50 percent capacity;
• Allows people to leave home for non-essential goods or services;
• Encourages state parks and trails that are closed to open;
• Specifically allows people to gather outdoors while following the Recommendations to Promote Social Distancing and Reduce Transmission, and with up to ten people;
• Opens childcare to working families; and
• Encourages North Carolinians to wear cloth face coverings when outside the home in order to protect others.

If you have questions or concerns about how this affects your business or family, contact an attorney at Dozier Miller Law Group. 704-372-6373 or https://doziermillerlaw.com/

THREE TAKEAWAYS FROM THE ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER REGARDING REMOTE CIVIL MOTIONS
By: Art Blanton

On April 3, 2020, Chief Justice Cheri Beasley of the North Carolina Supreme Court entered an order extending the original directive to reschedule cases and directing North Carolina trial courts to continue hearings until after June 1, 2020. Thereafter, the Twenty-Sixth Judicial District entered an administrative order on April 16, 2020 that allows civil motions to be heard remotely by way of audio-video transmission.

Read attorney Blanton’s blog for his three takeaways from this Order.

If you have questions or concerns about remote hearings in your case, contact an attorney at Dozier Miller Law Group. We are available to assist existing and new clients by phone, email, and video conferences. To learn more, visit our website: https://doziermillerlaw.com/practice-areas/litigation/

Beginning April 30, 2020, Mecklenburg County, the City of Charlotte and the six county towns, will follow the State of North Carolina’s Stay at Home Order.

Mecklenburg’s Stay at Home Order began March 26 and is more restrictive than the state order regarding certain businesses—including car dealerships, landscaping services, real estate brokerage, and other businesses not considered essential.

Following the state order, the list below outlines what is now considered Essential Businesses/Activities:
• Defense and military contractors that develop products, processes, equipment, technology, and related services that serve the United States military, national defense, and national security interests.
• Electronic retailers that sell or service cell phones, computers, tablets, and other communications technology.
• Lawn and garden equipment retailers.
• Book stores that sell educational material.
• Religious facilities, entities, groups, gatherings, including funerals. Also, services, counseling, pastoral care, and other activities provided by religious organizations to the members of their faith community. Gatherings may not exceed 10 people.
• Insurance companies, underwriters, agents, brokers, and related insurance claims and agency services.
• Real estate services including brokerage, appraisal and title services.
• Automobile dealers.

All Essential Businesses must still abide by Social Distancing Requirements outlined below:
• Maintaining at least six (6) feet distancing from other individuals.
• Washing hands using soap and water for at least twenty (20) seconds as frequently as possible or the use of hand sanitizer.
• Regularly cleaning high-touch surfaces.
• Facilitating online or remote access by customers if possible.

A mass gathering is still defined as any event or convening that brings together more than ten (10) persons in a single room or single space at the same time, such as an auditorium, stadium, arena, large conference room, meeting hall, or any other confined indoor or outdoor space. This includes parades, fairs, and festivals.

On Friday (April 24, 2020), Governor Roy Cooper announced that North Carolina K-12 public schools will continue remote learning through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.

While schools are closed and continuing remote learning, for families with custody and/or visitation orders, parenting time shall continue as if the child(ren) are still attending school in accordance with the regular school calendar of the relevant district.

School closure for public health purposes is not be considered an extension of any break/vacation/holiday period or weekend. “Spring break,” “summer break/vacation,” or other designated holidays means the regularly calendared breaks/vacations or holidays in the school district where the child(ren) attend school (or would attend school if they were school aged).

If you have questions or concerns about your custody order, contact a family law attorney at Dozier Miller Law Group. We are available to assist existing and new clients by phone, email, and video conferences. To learn more visit our website: https://doziermillerlaw.com/practice-areas/family-law/

PARENTING DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS
by Amanda Brisson Cannavo

During the COVID-19 health crisis, families face unprecedented times and uncharted territory. From stay-at-home orders to distance learning for children, parents are navigating new responsibilities and challenges. Our day-to-day has dramatically changed, which also impacts co-parenting for those who share custody of their children.

To assist families with custody and/or visitation orders, the North Carolina Family Court Advisory Commission issued recommendations. (*Please note that these recommendations are not intended to apply to child custody orders entered pursuant to a Chapter 50B Domestic Violence Protective Order.)

Human Lawyer Podcast: Beth Greene

CHECK OUT THE HUMAN LAWYER PODCAST with guest Dozier Miller Law Group's Elizabeth (Beth) Greene.

The Human Lawyer Podcast is “the time and place where we have conversations with lawyers focusing on the intersection of the existential and the practical.”

Summary of the episode: State criminal prosecutor, federal criminal prosecutor, in-house counsel, criminal defense attorney—Beth’s career trajectory highlights the expanse of opportunities for a lawyer. A Wahoo undergrad and a survivor of Buies Creek, you would think Beth has seen it all both with respect to the stories she’s heard as a criminal prosecutor and defense attorney, and the lifestyle differences between Charlottesville and Buies Creek.

But, today, our goal is to riff on a variety of topics, things like: how has Beth’s perspective changed about the practice of law having shifted from prosecution, to in-house, to her current role defending those accused of violating the law? What opportunities does she envision in the future for her career? How does she source clients? What does she see as market differentiators in serving her clients? How does she communicate those to her clients?

I highly recommend this established boutique firm. The attorneys are grounded in old-school traditional values, and the firm is small-enough care about each case-by-case, and worked within my budget, and time-frame. I have consulted with almost all the partners on various interconnected-issues: Estate Planning, Immigration, Cross-Border Foreign Jurisdiction Issues, Exiting Lease and rental agreements, Company registration as needed for USCIS applications, Traffic Violations, and Issues with Social Security Identity Fraud. I am very grateful to have had their advice and leadership.
Thank you to team "Lauren Malcom Helbein' for our unexpected win this past Thursday. Congrats to Lisa,Jennifer, Adam and the best lawyer in town Bob Hanner ( along with Judy Linville ) the 70/30 shot got pulled out of the bag!
