You Can Count On Our Knowledge And Tenacity

Litigation in federal court requires specialized knowledge and experience. Federal law is complex, and processes, procedures, and other matters are handled differently than they are in state courts. Our federal litigation attorneys are licensed to practice in federal court and are well-versed in the nuances of court procedures and law. They are committed to staying up-to-date on the ever-changing legal landscape by attending continuing education seminars, classes, and conferences.

Several lawyers on our teams at Gross McGinley, LLP have worked as law clerks for federal district and appellate judges, and as both prosecutors and defense attorneys. This broad range of experience provides the depth of knowledge required to create successful legal strategies. We are well-versed in the judicial mindset of federal judges, which helps our team develop strategies specific to the federal court in which a trial will be litigated.   

Our team also includes a seasoned federal litigation attorney who has appeared and argued before the United States Supreme Court. Over the past five decades, he has also represented civil and criminal defendants in federal trials and appeals courts in multiple states.



Types Of Federal Cases We Handle

Our Sectors

Healthcare law, insurance law, real estate law, and other private sectors involve a maze of regulations and ever-evolving legislation. Whether federal litigation involves building a solid defense for a lawsuit against a healthcare organization or advocating for an individual who has been charged with a white-collar crime, our teams work collaboratively to provide top-notch representation for any legal issue that comes our way.

We represent clients within a broad range of sectors, including:

  • Healthcare
  • Insurance
  • Banking
  • Real estate

  • Media and publishing

Building Strategies That Get Results

Whether a case involves a civil or criminal matter, our federal litigation attorneys use every tool at our disposal to work toward successful outcomes. We develop legal strategies that can give us leverage for negotiating an agreement outside of court, set us up for successful outcomes at trial, or even result in dismissal of a case by a judge. Our lawyers understand that each case is different, and requires a strategy that’s unique to the specific circumstances and how the law may apply to them.

Thorough investigation and preparation are vital prior to trial. Our federal litigation team invests the time and work that’s required to properly prepare for what lies ahead. We’ll discuss our strategy with you, prepare you for trial, and ensure all evidence, witnesses, and experts are ready to go.



Resolving Disputes Through Mediation And Arbitration

Our federal litigation attorneys are skilled negotiators who thrive on creating innovative solutions for legal disputes.  Federal civil matters can often be solved through mediation or arbitration, which are alternative dispute resolution (ARD) methods that help settle legal issues before going to court. In some cases, arbitration is required before a trial commences. Both of these ARD methods help clients reach quicker resolutions than going through the court system, saving clients time and money.
