If the matter is resolved without a trial, there won't be any issues. If, however, a trial must be scheduled, you will have to travel back to Virginia for the trial, as well appear at any depositions. You should make sure your attorney has your contact information and is aware of your relocation.

Good luck.

It shouldn't be a problem as long as you return for necessary appearances.


You have a lawyer. Why do you need to seek free advice from other lawyers you don't know? This may depend on your contract and your ability to come back for court dates, depositions, etc. Keep trying to contact him or her and wait on a reply. Try emailing them.


It should not be a problem if you do what is necessary.

Mr. Crosner is licensed to practice law in California and has been practicing law in California since 1978. The response herein is general legal and business analysis.. It is not intended nor construed to be "legal advice" but rather it is analysis, and different lawyers may analyze this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. Oftentimes the question does not include significant and important facts and timelines that, if known, could significantly change the reply and make it unsuitable. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. See also terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.


As long as you can make your appearances, you'll be fine.
