The ability to practice before federal courts allows our firm to represent clients in whatever venue their issue may arise.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
Grossman Law Offices, a Dallas personal injury firm, is excited to announce the admission of Jerrell Wise to the federal bar. While Attorney Wise has been a member in good standing with the Texas bar for some time, his practice within the firm is expanding into the federal system.
For admission to practice before federal courts, an attorney must first and foremost be in good standing in his home state. After dues are paid, applicants to the federal system must attend a workshop approved by the Federal Judiciary. Rather than be a standalone certification program, registration to the federal courts is designed to piggyback on the home state’s registration program.
Once certification is granted, attorneys may practice before the district in which admission was granted. Admission to the federal bar is important, as state cases are often removed to the federal level based on issues like diversity jurisdiction. This is typically a situation where the plaintiff and defendant are citizens of different states and one party seeks to remove their case from the local courts. Article 3 Section 2 of the US Constitution grants this removal as a means of providing an equitable jurisdiction between the diverse parties.
Dallas personal injury attorney Jerrell Wise comments, “The ability to practice before federal courts allows our firm to represent clients in whatever venue their issue may arise. This is yet another example of the firm’s, and more particularly my own practice’s growth.” Members of the federal bar must renew their registration every 5 years, beginning on the date of admission.
