I often serve as local counsel for out-of-state attorneys who litigate cases in Michigan. Consequently, I know that the role of local counsel varies from case to case, depending on a variety of different circumstances.
I am happy to serve as local counsel in any capacity, including filing pleadings, providing advice on local practice and procedure, sharing my insights on state and federal judges, conducting legal research, participating in discovery, attending motions, hearings or scheduling conferences, or assisting in any other manner. I know that experienced local counsel can make life much easier for out-of-state lead counsel, and sometimes might even make the difference between winning and losing a case.
With over 30 years of experience, I have experience in virtually any court where you might need local service. I work closely with different kind of lawyers.Â My goal as local counsel is to give you the knowledge, insights, expertise and assistance you need to reduce the burdens of litigating out-of-state, while maximizing the chances of winning the case for your client.
