Overview

With its uniform set of national rules, federal courts provide an opportunity for litigators from any part of the country to comfortably file or defend lawsuits in any federal judicial jurisdiction where they are admitted to practice. A politically insulated judiciary and usually expedited trial schedules make the system a (generally) fair and (usually) fast method of resolving disputes. Attorney Nolan Klein, Esq. has represented clients in almost a thousand (1,000) federal lawsuits, and in this program, he discusses the basics of federal litigation, including the pros and cons of filing in federal court, discovery rules, and procedural tools needed to effectively advocate for clients in federal court litigation.
