“You are a very interesting mix of tiger and kindness”
I would like to testify as to the qualifications and expertise of my company’s attorney, who has also become my personal counsel. His approach is direct, honest and committed to his client. With a dedicated work ethic, he tenaciously works in the interest of his client with a take-charge attitude that demonstrates his knowledge, honesty, enthusiasm and caring.
We have been working with John for the last couple of years as a business transaction attorney. He continues to be, and has been, nothing but timely, professional, and knowledgeable in all services rendered for us. He is meticulous and thoughtful in every aspect, and we would highly recommend his services and still continue to build our relationship with him. His alacrity is continually a pleasant surprise.
After looking at several attorneys to handle my case, I selected John. It was the best choice I could have made. He has given me peace of mind and has handled my case with pure professionalism. I would definitely recommend using John to my friends or family if asked.
Austin Business Being Sued in State Court
Business Litigation Attorney in Austin
When a party is being sued in state court, an effective business litigation attorney must consider every possible option to maximize the party’s chances of a successful outcome. One such possible option is removal to federal court.
At my Austin, Texas, law firm, I am fully vested in my clients’ pursuit of solutions to complex litigation. My dedication to success sometimes means that I explore with my client removal to federal court as a litigation strategy.
There are many situations where this strategy may be used. Especially in complex or sophisticated litigation, federal court provides the opportunity for the matter to be heard by a different trier of fact. The federal bench is widely considered to be more knowledgeable about certain technical business, intellectual property and financial matters. Removal to federal court often provides the parties with the opportunity to bring a dispute before such a judge — providing the basis for a just and favorable outcome.
More than finding a forum in which certain complex business matters can be effectively litigated, removal to federal court gives my clients a way to resolve matters while avoiding some local prejudice. This is especially important for Texas business owners with widely known businesses and reputations. These business owners may find it difficult to bring a matter before an impartial jury in state court.
Removing a matter to federal court can be tricky, especially if there are multiple defendants involved. As an experienced lawyer, I have the skill necessary to successfully navigate sophisticated legal matters. I have the knowledge and familiarity necessary to comfortably handle matters in federal court and to guide my clients to achieve the best possible outcomes.
When I handle your business litigation case, I personally handle your concerns and take your calls, unless I am in a meeting, on the phone or asleep. I respond to your e-mails, when I receive them, on the same basis. I am willing to work for you, 24/7/365.
The quality of my work has been well recognized by my clients, and I have received the AV rating* under Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review system. Call 512.457.1177 to speak with me, Attorney John McDuff, about your legal concerns.
