A: A Washington attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Until you speak with an attorney in your state, the first thing an attorney would ask you is what the lawsuit involves. You'd probably want to seek law firms that practice in that area. In terms of geography, that's something to discuss with attorneys. Nationwide, attorneys can work within the bounds of their state. On some types of matters, it could make sense to use someone situated close to the court. With virtual technology today, it could also enable using more remotely located attorneys who are good in a particular area of law if the setting allows for virtual depositions, etc. These are things to sort out with attorneys you might reach out to. Good luck
