Las Vegas Federal Lawyers
Don’t let a complex federal system limit the justice you deserve.
The majority of legal issues in this country, whether they involve civil claims or criminal charges are typically handled by state courts. This generally means that most attorneys have very little experience in the federal court system. While the stakes can be incredibly high in a federal case with far-reaching repercussions, there are certain situations where federal jurisdiction applies, or the details suggest the matter should be moved to federal court. Additionally, the procedural rules for litigating in federal court are vastly different than at the state level, requiring extensive preparation, attention to detail, and a thorough understanding of this highly-specialized area of law. Which is why you need an experienced Federal Litigation Lawyer. Things can move quickly, and if you are involved in any type of federal legal proceeding, it is vital to work with federal lawyers, who have the skill and experience necessary to protect your best interests and pursue your case – at the highest level.

When You Need a Federal Lawyer
If you are considering legal action or have been thrust into a situation that you barely understand, it is very important to know your rights and to work with attorneys, familiar with your case and what avenues will put you in the best possible position. Even if your legal issue seems straightforward, you will likely benefit from discussing the matter with a knowledgeable lawyer, who can explain all your options, including when federal rules and procedures apply.
Some issues that will always be handled by federal courts, such as alleged violations of federal statutes, including federal laws prohibiting discrimination based on race, gender, color, national origin, or religion. A common civil mater addressed in federal court is when the parties involved reside in different states. For example, if you are injured in a truck accident in Nevada and wish to file suit against the negligent trucking company, but it is based in Illinois. These cases could likely be heard in the federal system. Additionally, certain illegal activities are classified as federal crimes because they violate federal statutes. These include offenses like white collar fraud, corruption, and conspiracy and may also encompass additional state criminal charges. Because of their intricacy, it is always prudent to discuss federal charges with a capable federal attorney, who can offer practical advice and proactive solutions.
At Paul Padda Law, we take a strategic and well-measured approach to every case and focus on what’s best for our clients from day one. With a wealth of experience and a reputation for achieving positive outcomes, our Las Vegas federal lawyers represent individuals across Nevada in a full range of legal issues within the federal court system.
The federal court system works differently than state courts in many ways. In civil matters, federal courts can typically only hear cases authorized by the United States Constitution or federal statutes, making it essential to work with an attorney familiar with this area.
Our Federal Court Attorneys Can Assist With
- WHISTLEBLOWER / QUI TAM CASES – The federal laws incentivize people that blow the whistle on fraud against the federal government and allow them to receive a portion of any recovery obtained by the federal government against the wrongdoers.

- FEDERAL TORT CLAIMS ACT – If you have been injured due to the negligence of the federal government or a federal employee, you might have legal recourse under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). These lawsuits can be lengthy and complicated, so it is important to speak with a highly-experienced federal attorney, prepared to go up against the federal government.
- CONSTITUTIONAL VIOLATIONS BY FEDERAL EMPLOYEES – The Constitution of the United States affords certain protections from abuse by government agents. If you believe that a government representative has infringed upon these rights and caused you harm, contact a constitutional lawyer as soon as possible about obtaining the justice you deserve.
- VETERANS AFFAIRS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE – U.S. Veterans deserve gratitude and respect for all they have done to serve our country.

Understanding the Federal Court System
We offer support, relief, and practical guidance in a difficult time.
Several lawsuits and other legal actions can be pursued in either state or federal court. Ultimately, how it progresses is determined by the unique facts and how it benefits the parties involved. In some situations, a case may even be transferred from state to federal court if appropriate jurisdiction exists. Both have benefits and drawbacks, which should be weighed with help from a legal professional. For instance, federal cases usually progress faster than those at the state level. By working with a proficient federal attorney, you can evaluate the specifics of your case and make calculated decisions as to where your case should be filed, or if necessary argue for it to remain a state matter.
Generally, legal issues fall under federal jurisdiction if they relate to:
- Diversity – If there is a state legal matter, but those involved are from different states, the federal court will handle the case, but apply state law.
- Constitutional Questions – The case raises U.S. Constitutional issues.
- Civil Rights – State law can still be utilized, but federal law also permits legal action.
- Class Actions – These are intricate cases with multiple parties, often requiring federal resources.
- Environmental Law – Federal regulations are given priority over state law.
- Benefits of the Federal System
Depending on your specific state, individuals with legal business in federal court may see:
- Beneficial discovery practices
- A more impartial setting
- Possible precedent binding on the court
- The right to jury trial in some cases
- Faster trials
- Wider jury selection
