Attorneys from Texas advertised on their website that they could represent in all 50 states.  Rhode Island plaintiff sought out and retained the firm.  After the Texa firm settled plaintiff’s claim and plaintiff becoming dissatisfied with the settlement, plaintiff sought out counsel to file claim against the Texa firm.  Judge Smith from the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island sided with the plaintiff that Texa firm had enough connection to Rhode Island during the handling of the case and found that Texa attorneys were subject to lawsuit in Rhode Island.  See Judge Smith’s opinion at:  Dennett v. Archuleta
