Not all claims for things such as personal injuries, medical malpractice, or even car accidents end up being tried in state courts. Depending on where you were injured or arrested, where the perpetrator or victim is from, and even where the product that injured you was manufactured, you may be able to try your case before a federal court.
Determining the best place for your claim could make the difference in the ultimate resolution of your case. When appearing before a federal court, almost every aspect – from procedure to the actual law that will govern your case – could be different than when you appear in a state court. In order to figure out where your case would be best served, you should speak with competent representation with experience in both federal and state trial court cases.

After consultation and hearing about your case, we can analyze your options and advise you as to what we believe would be the best course.
