One of the things that we pride ourselves on at GCPC is how often other lawyers hire us to assist them with legal matters. Whether it is due to our experience with the subject matter, or our broad jurisdictional footprint, other lawyers frequently hire us to assist them with certain legal matters.
Most frequently, this occurs with cases that are pending in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, known around the Country as the “Rocket Docket”. Litigating matters in this Court is a unique experience, and follows a complex set of unique local rules.
For instance, in the Rocket Docket, objections to discovery requests are due in only 15 days, a shorter time period than most other Federal Courts and definitely shorter than allowed under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
