California Federal Court Litigation Attorney Brings Claims for Clients

Dedicated Torrance lawyer provides court counsel for civil plaintiffs in United States courts

Since most civil lawsuits are handled in state courts, the majority of practicing attorneys never even enter federal court. If you are involved in a dispute where federal jurisdiction applies or a federal case has been brought, you need an attorney who is more than simply acquainted with federal law and federal rules of procedure. At The Law Offices Of Angela Swan, I help clients in the Torrance are and throughout California and litigate cases in the federal court system. I understand the many nuances, advantages and disadvantages of federal court, and I am prepared to represent you in all civil matters.

Legal advocate helps clients understand federal court jurisdiction

Not every case can go to federal court. This is because the court only has the power to hear certain cases. This power is known as jurisdiction. Federal jurisdiction can be extremely complex, but most of the civil cases that end up in federal court fall into the following categories:

  • Diversity — The parties live in different states.
  • Federal question — There is an issue of constitutional law or federal law that a court must rule on to decide the case.
  • Suing a federal entity — The case involves the government.
  • Admiralty — The dispute involves issues of maritime law arising from an incident on navigable waters.

I regularly bring federal claims on behalf of clients.

When to choose a federal court

Some civil lawsuits can and should be filed in federal court. Federal court may offer:

  • More favorable discovery rules
  • Judges more experienced with complex cases
  • A more neutral forum
  • Favorable precedent binding on the court
  • The right to jury trial for specific cases
  • Speedier trial
  • A broader jury pool

An experienced federal court litigator will fully explain whether your case should be filed federally or removed from the state court to the federal system.
