Lawyers are permitted to represent clients in lawsuits outside of the state in which a lawyer is licensed to practice law. This is accomplished through a "pro hac vice" motion or application [pronounced pro hock veechee], and requires the assistance of a lawyer (called "local counsel") licensed in the outside state. This video gives a short history and a brief explanation of how lawyers are being hired to represent clients in lawsuits brought in states other than the lawyer's state of licensure. I have represented clients in litigation in various states through this pro hac vice process.
