The Law Office of Joe VanDervoort and Geoff Dulebohn

Office Procedure

Our office usually has three lawyers and several administrative assistants on staff. We handle court cases in several different counties, ranging from Colusa to Tehama. In addition to serving the Chico and Oroville area, we also handle DMV hearings in Sacramento.

Regular office hours are between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is often an attorney in the office by 6 a.m., until 7 p.m. and on most weekends to keep current on legal research, letters and emergency phone calls.

Our staff is extremely experienced and can assist you in regard to general questions about your case. In addition to speaking with office staff, we suggest you submit any questions or concerns in writing. We will respond to your inquiries in writing.

We review written correspondence, email, pleadings and documents from courts, district attorneys and expert witnesses on a daily basis. All correspondence should be typed or legibly printed and include your name.

After each court appearance, we will send you a letter or email explaining what took place, the next hearing date, when we will need to meet, and any other items and information. If anything unusual happens, we will contact you by phone.

If you feel that you need to speak directly to your attorney, by phone or in person, please contact the office to arrange an appointment.
