A lawsuit can be filed where the plaintiff resides or where the defendant resides or where the claim arose.  The lawsuit can be filed where the partners reside or where the partnership property is located.  You can retain an attorney licensed in either state.  It would be preferable to retain an attorney in the state where you are planning on filing the lawsuit.
