Bringing Suit: you must do so before evidence disappears or the statute of limitations runs.

Defending Suit:  a default judgment may be entered against you or important defenses can be waived, if you do not act timely.  Once a judgment is obtained against you in PA, it's fairly easy for the party suing  you to transfer the judgment from PA to your home state, to attempt to execute against your assets.  The "Full Faith and Credit" clause of the US Constitution allows this practice. 

Suit in Pennsylvania.  A lawsuit may be filed in PA if (1) the alleged conduct at issue  took place in PA, or (2) any dealings between the parties took  place in PA (such as contract negotiation, the acceptance, or performance in PA), or (3) the parties agreed that PA will be the forum  jurisdiction, or (4) defendant does enough business PA to  expect to be sued in PA.


Our Resources

We use technology to make it cost-effective to rely on us. We have experience representing parties (plaintiffs and defendants) who have pending cases in PA but reside elsewhere throughout the duration of the case.
