Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Just Answer. I would like to assist you today. The proper venue for this matter is most likely in California. (I do not know the way in which your debt work was to be structured, but if you hired an attorney in California for the purpose of having them conduct the work away from your home state, there would be a strong presumption against proper venue in Penn.).
With that being said, you can find a professional liability (or legal malpractice lawyer in particular) in California, or one in Pennsyvlania that is also licensed in California if you are willing to pay for some travel expenses (most cases resolve with relatively few personal appearances, but it is a risk with out of state counsel).
To find a legal malpractice attorney in California, you can locate one through the California Bar Association, Martindale Hubble, or AVVO.
I hope that my answer was of assistance to you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. Thank you for your business!
