Complex Civil Litigation Attorneys
When it concerns your own case, litigation always appears complex. Our lawyers will always be there for you to help you understand what is going on. Regardless of the size of the case, we will treat it with respect and always strive to provide you with the best possible result.
There are cases, however, that require extremely careful handling. With complex litigation, some questions that may arise include:
- Can this case be filed in state court, or does it have to be filed in federal court?
- There are defendants in five different states. Can we sue them all here?
- The defendant moved my case from state to federal court. Can they do that?
- The contract says suit must be filed in California for work done in Nebraska. Do I really have to go to California to sue?
- I want to sue the city. Can I sue them just like a person?
- The county just said it’s taking 20 acres of my property and will only pay me a few dollars per acre. The land is worth more. Is there anything I can do?
- The homeowners’ association for the subdivision where I live told me I have to tear down my new fence. Can they do that?
- My partner just threw me out, but I own 50% of the business. Can she do that?
There are many other situations that can make litigation complex.
Federal Court Practice
If the facts of the case allow it, the first tactic of a large firm defending a complex suit is to “remove” it to federal court, where they think they have an advantage because of the rules and strict procedural requirements of federal courts.
Some small firms rarely, if ever, litigate in federal court. The attorneys at our firm practice regularly in federal court. The attorneys at Sherrets Bruno & Vogt have represented clients in federal courts in Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, Arizona, Minnesota, Arkansas, Delaware, Washington, California, and other jurisdictions.
Attorneys at Sherrets Bruno & Vogt also regularly handle appeals in the U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal. Sherrets Bruno & Vogt has attorneys admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court and the U.S. Courts of Appeal in the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 8th and 9th Circuits. If necessary, one or more of the attorneys are eligible to be admitted in the federal appellate courts for the remaining circuits.
