We are moving!

We are pleased to announce that we are moving.

We will only be moving a short distance away...
Actually across the street!

Or as one of our clients joked:
"No se mudaron... solamente cambiaron de puertas!"

Have Case, Will Travel II

Not only do we "travel" for cases, (see post called "Have Case, Will Travel", we also do cases covering other states and even other countries!

We have done cases, or are working on cases dealing with the following states:

  • New York
  • New Jersey
  • Connecticut
  • Pennsylvania
  • Florida
  • Massachussetts
  • Texas
  • Kentucky
Here are some of the cases we have done or are working on that involve other countries:
  • Netherlands
  • Aruba
  • Dominican Republic
And of course there are those, shall we say, "hybrid" cases, like those that involve US territories:
  • St. Croix
  • Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico of course is very popular for us to deal with.  We frequently have cases involving Puerto Rico.

Please note.... the cases all have jurisdiction in either New York or New Jersey but somehow involve another jurisdiction as well.
