Personal injury cases usually require resort to state courts for resolution. The state where you were injured, where your defendant resides, or where your corporate defendant regularly does business, generally determines where a lawsuit should be instituted. Your attorney generally needs to have a license to practice law issued by that state, or must associate such an attorney before filing a lawsuit in the proper state. The attorneys at Goss & Fentress have a variety of state licenses that make it possible to represent clients in personal injury cases in Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, West Virginia and New York.
Social Security Disability and SSI
While state law licenses are not required in representing claimants in the Social Security Administration’s administrative courts, local experience does count.
Goss & Fentress, PLC is a regional law firm, representing disability claimants primarily in the regional administrative courts headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland; Washington DC; Richmond, Virginia; Norfolk, Virginia; and Raleigh, North Carolina. These regional courts in turn have jurisdiction over a group of Social Security District Offices where disability claims are filed.
