Information About Pro Hac Vice
Pro Hac Vice is a term used to describe lawyers who practice outside of their jurisdiction. For example, a criminal defense attorney from California might want to handle a case in Phoenix, but if they are not admitted to practice in Phoenix courts, then they would have to make a motion for Pro Hac Vice. This right is not guaranteed, and only granted in certain circumstances.
Lawyers who wish to handle cases outside of their jurisdiction usually must petition to their bar association to get a let of recommendation. The bar association must provide information that this particular attorney is a member in good standing, and in addition to that document, the lawyer will likely also have to pay a fee. Fees for acting as Pro Hac Vice differ depending on jurisdiction.
