Bucks County Local Counsel


Moving any piece of civil litigation through the court system is an important aspect of service to the client.  Efficiency in advocacy is critical to representation.  A litigator must be aware of the local landscape and use that backdrop to the client’s advantage where possible.  Knowing when action is required or not required, ascertaining deadlines and effectively communicating with court administration and staff enhances the representation of the client.  Moreover, awareness of local practice allows the litigator to focus on substantive issues pertinent to the matter without becoming bogged down by the mechanism by which those substantive issues will be presented to the Court.  

The Bucks County Court of Common Pleas, like many jurisdictions, maintains practices and procedures unique to the practice of law in the County relating to issues and matters such as discovery, scheduling of preliminary injunction hearings, local rules relating to other matters such as timing of memoranda in support of motions and responses, jury selection, voir dire and the order of presentation.  These areas can be problematic to the out of county practitioner.
