It’s critical that you hire a lawyer that’s admitted to the US Court of Federal Claims because you absolutely have to be admitted to that court. You should also be a member of the Federal Vaccine Bar. So, for example, if you had a vaccine and you had an injury in the state of North Dakota, you do not need to hire a lawyer that’s admitted in North Dakota. The lawyer can practice anywhere in the United States, they just have to be admitted to the US Court of Federal Claims.
So, it really doesn’t matter where you find your lawyer. They just have to be admitted to the proper court. And it’s important that you hire someone with experience, because this is a very – it’s a novel procedure for lawyers. It’s a unique, statutorily-created scheme. Most lawyers don’t have any experience with vaccine law. Certainly, most personal injury lawyers are not admitted to the US Court of Federal Claims. So, it’s important to find someone with the expertise that’s necessary.
