Hiring Antonelli Law Is No More Expensive than Hiring a Local Attorney in Your State
Hiring Antonelli Law to represent you in your federal case is not more expensive, or more difficult, compared to hiring a local attorney assuming you could find one experienced in BitTorrent copyright infringement defense.
Why isn't it more expensive? Federal courts require attorneys to file their papers electronically and often conduct hearings by telephone. This makes frequent trips to the courthouse unnecessary. Also, we do not charge for airline flights or flying travel charges. Clients pay only for the normal travel time to the courthouse any local attorney would charge.
Finally, we have affiliated local counsel in a number of states who have earned our trust and can appear in court if necessary on an expedited basis (see below). We will make arrangements to be in court personally when necessary such as non-routine hearings or a trial.
If you are comparing lawyers, ask if they are admitted to the federal trial bar, and ask if they are admitted to the federal district your court case is in - or if they ever had an actual case in that court. Do they answer all of your questions? We have those credentials and more to back up our advice and settlement postures and the other side knows it. We have the experience to deal with unexpected problems. They may not.
