Multidistrict Litigation Attorney
Hundreds of thousands of civil cases are filed every year, and oftentimes several cases will be of a similar nature against one specific defendant. In order to cut costs and increase efficiency, the U.S. courts implemented the multidistrict litigation (MDL) process to consolidate similar cases and try them under one single court. MDL began as a special federal procedure meant to simplify and speed up the handling of complex cases that spread across multiple districts. These large cases are often difficult to defend because the case may leave the plaintiff’s home district. As a result, it is imperative to have strong legal representation at your side if you are the plaintiff in an MDL case.
It takes dozens or even hundreds of cases to combine before becoming a MDL case. With this large number of legal suits happening at the same time, it is difficult to ensure that your interests receive adequate attention and protection. At Mokaram Law Firm, our attorneys strive to defend your legal rights no matter what happens. We have extensive experience dealing with the MDL process and understand how to guarantee your case will not be lost in the crowd.

Typical MDL Cases
To receive consideration for the MDL process, one must first submit a case to the U.S. Judicial Panel for Multidistrict Litigation for approval. Once approved, all cases move to a central federal court for discovery proceeding and pretrial motions. These MDL cases can involve a variety of topics across personal injury law. Some of the most common cases include:
- Airplane Crashes
- Dangerous Drugs
- Product Defect
- Product Liability
- Employment Practices
- Premises Liability
While MDL cases should reduce court costs and save time for all parties involved in the case, it is easy for attorneys not to account for evidence adequately during discovery, and information may be lost.
