Pennsylvania Legal Research Services


Pleadings and Discovery

Our team of attorneys has helped clients with pleadings in every state and federal court, including Pennsylvania state courts. To help our attorney-clients with their cases, we can prepare pleadings for complaints, motions to compel, motions for summary judgment, motions to dismiss, motions to strike, and more.

In cases ranging from complex multidistrict litigation to relatively simple state court proceedings, the National Legal Research Group's attorneys have assisted our attorney-clients with the following discovery-related services: motions to compel discovery, deposition summaries, interrogatories, requests for production, requests for admissions, and preparation for depositions. 

Legal Document Review

As attorneys, we understand the lengthy amount of time it can take to review legal documents for a case. While this process is critical, it can be quite cumbersome. This is why we offer our clients the highest quality of legal document review services to help them save time, and better predict cost upfront to better meet their deadlines. 

Telephone and Email Reports

If a written product is not needed, our attorneys can provide you with a more cost-effective solution through our email and telephone reports. This allows you to gain the same access to our expert legal research and legal analysis, but for a fraction of the cost. Submit your case using the form on this page to have our attorneys discuss these options in more detail with you.

"John Buckley did a superb job in my case. He gave me the case which 'carried the day.'  It could not have been more on point than if I had written the opinion...He is a very good man and was great to work with...I am grateful that he was assigned to my case."

-John I. McMahon Sr., Norristown, PA

"I used your memo and wrote my brief, with very few changes or additions. It was exactly what I needed. The other side could not write a brief refuting any of it, and at argument the Court verbally agreed with our position on the first issue. I have not received a final decision yet, but I want to thank you for the great research. Keep up the good work."

-John W. Purcell Jr., Harrisburg, PA

"Exceptionally helpful brief because it helped me to prepare for the hearing and gave me some confidence. Quality work done on short notice."

-H. Charles Benner, Leola, PA


"First class work - Excellent job!"

-Richard P. Anton, Pittsburgh, PA
