Litigation Attorney - Pennsylvania

Everyone will have the same questions as @Josh Caldwell . At a minimum, we will need to know: (1) location of the dispute; (2) type of litigation; and (3) the approximate level of damages. 

One the first point, you may want to review if there are any facts that bind you to a certain location. For example, if this a contract dispute, the contract may mandate a certain venue if there was a lawsuit. I had a case a long time ago where the two parties (one from California and the other from Pennsylvania) couldn't agree on a venue. So they ended up picking some random place in the middle as the venue. 

Type of litigation matters obviously. At a big enough firm, it's not unusual to have a litigation specialist that work with other legal experts on a case. Those firms also happen to charge anywhere $750 to $1,000 (or more) per hour per attorney. So often times you are better off finding a litigator who also specializes in the specific type of dispute. 

Finally, it's important to see what level of damages you are expecting in the best case scenario. Are we talking five figures, six figures, seven figures, or more? Depending on the damages at stake, you may want to use a different level of lawyers. Let's say it's a dispute over $5,000. If so, you may want to use a local attorney or just try to see if you can settle the dispute. If you are talking looking at a $20 million case, then you have a wide range of options.

@Chris K. thank you for the response, by the way I contacted you long time via email about this case, you probably did not get it.  

(1) Berks County
(2) The misrepresentation by the seller in the contract. (I am not sure how to classify it.)
(3) $450,000

There is no facts about the location. 

We purchased the property for $200,000. However, the issue it causes now based on the misrepresentation is $450,000.

You may have sent it to my old email address. Unfortunately, there were some technical challenges there so it may not have been forwarded! 

I'll shoot you a PM to discuss. I don't really litigate anymore due to my schedule, but I've been involved in many misrepresentation cases on both sides. I should be able to find someone for you depending on the facts.
