Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.

JD 1992 :

Where did you see that language?

Customer :

at a lawyer site

JD 1992 :

That doesn't have a specific legal meaning but what it sounds like, based on it being a lawyer's website, is that they assist with cases in federal court. This can mean filling in at hearings so the lawyer doesn't actually have to travel to court every time there is a hearing, providing local resources during trials, etc.

JD 1992 :

In cities with a busy federal court it is often very helpful to have a local attorney serving as local counsel.

Customer :
