Virginia Circuit Court Local Counsel – Everywhere you Need to Be.

Virginia is a jurisdiction where you generally can’t use deposition testimony in a summary judgment motion, where a Motion to Dismiss is called a “Demurrer”, and a whole host of other really funky and specific rules. Each County or locality has a Virginia Circuit Court with its own specific rules. Our team of more than thirty Virginia-barred lawyers, practicing and local to Virginia state Circuit Courts all over the Commonwealth of Virginia, understand how the court works.  We will make litigation a legal and fact fight by taking the procedural burdens off the backs of our fellow lawyers who need local lawyer help in any Virginia state court.

Unrivaled Access and Support for Local Counsel

Despite having a large number of attorneys who have fled mega firms, our rates are sane and competitive with any small firm. As local counsel, we can offer conference space, and staff  and document support and physical offices in multiple Virginia locations. We have local access to electronic filing and dockets that are not available to the general public, and indeed many smaller firms may not even subscribe, even those that offer local counsel services.  For example, both Loudoun County Circuit Court and Fairfax County Circuit Court utilize some form of electronic records in certain cases.  We subscribe to OSS, the Online Scheduling System for civil cases (link), CPAN (link) and EFS (the subscription only electronic filing systems and docket system for Fairfax County Courts), and to the Loudoun Electronic records system.  Please visit this link for statewide Virginia Circuit Court case information.
