Out-of-state claims and lawsuits

At Frenkel & Frenkel, our Dallas personal injury attorneys can represent you even if you sustained injuries in an accident outside of Texas. Pro hac vice—a Latin term that translates to “for this occasion”—grants temporary permission to lawyers to practice law in a state where they are not licensed. Contact us today to find out more.

Your out-of-state injury case and our firm

Attorneys are licensed to practice law in their jurisdiction or state, which they gain by passing the bar administered by the state where they plan to work. If asked to provide legal representation for a case in another state, securing a license to practice law in that state would be unrealistic, which is why attorneys in good standing may be admitted pro hac vice. For an attorney to practice in another state, they would be required to enter into an agreement with an attorney licensed in the state in question. The agreement will state that the pro hac vice attorney will learn and comply with the state's laws, where they will temporarily practice law.

In some states, whether or not an attorney can practice pro hac vice is a decision left up to the judge on the case.
