Steve Vondran – Federal Court Lawyer

Steve Vondran federal court lawyer los angeles san francisco phoenix


When it comes to hiring a law firm or attorney to handle your federal court cases, you want to make sure you hire a firm that has “been there and done that.”  Federal Court cases are different from state Court cases and you want a lawyer that knows the federal rules of evidence and federal rules of civil procedure and is not afraid to argue vigorously in front of a federal judge (who are appointed by Presidents and confirmed by the United States Senate). In short, it’s a different playing field and not the best place for an attorney who has never been there.  Before you hire any law firm for your federal cases (ex. copyright infringement, trademark infringement) contact us to discuss our skills and qualifications, and make sure to compare our PACER profiles with those of other firms you might be considering to hire.  We believe when you weigh all the facts, the verdict is clear – Vondran Legal is the firm to litigate your federal court case!

Federal Court removal process

We can also help you if you are a Plaintiff or a Defendant in a state court lawsuit that gets moved (i.e. “removed“) to Federal Court.  Typically this happens when either:

1.  The Plaintiff’s and Defendant’s are litigants from two different states (ex. one is from San Francisco, California and the other party is from Scottsdale, Arizona, for example).  This is known as “diversity jurisdiction.”  There is a limited time frame for removal, and all Defendants must agree to the removal.

2.  Federal questions are raised in the Complaint. This means that the Plaintiff has raised issues or causes of action that pertain to federal law.  For example, where Plaintiff has sued for Copyright or Trademark infringement, a violation of the Federal Fair Housing Act, Truth in Lending or RESPA law, or under other federal statues.
