A: That's up to you as long as your lawyer is licensed in both states you can have one lawyer as lawyers are licensed by state. The problem is you want the best lawyer for each case and that may not be a lawyer that is licensed in both states as your lawyer may have a high success rate in PA and a low one in NJ. Obviously it appears your NJ case is the toughest one as you have more than one charge.
