Aggressive Sex Crime Representation in Every State
In general, an attorney must be licensed in a state in order to practice law in that state. However, when an attorney who is licensed in another state wants to represent a client that has been indicted and assigned to an out-of-state court, they can request the court’s permission to represent their client. Although an application for pro hac vice admission is generally approved, some states do require the assistance of a local attorney. Regardless, your attorney will still represent you in court and help you create the best legal strategy for your case.
If you have been falsely accused of a sex crime offense in any state, it is important to hire a criminal defense lawyer who is knowledgeable in all areas of false sex crime allegations and solely dedicated to representing individuals who have been falsely accused of committing sexual offenses, including those involving children, as well as offenses involving family members or domestic violence.
Understanding the Pro Hac Vice Process
When you hire an out-of-state attorney to represent you after you have been indicted for an alleged sex abuse offense, they will have to go through an application process in order to appear as your attorney in the court where your case has been assigned.
Depending on the state’s rules where your case is located, your attorney will have to follow a certain procedure in order to be granted pro hac vice admission. Most states require the attorney to file a motion for pro hac vice admission, show they are in good standing with the state’s bar where they are licensed, and pay a fee to the state bar. Some states require additional requirements. For example, the Texas process for pro hac vice admission is as follows:
- The attorney must first file an application for pro hac vice admission.
- The attorney must also pay the mandatory fee for admission.
- Finally, the attorney must file a sworn motion in the court where they desire to participate, or represent their client.
The decision whether an attorney will be granted pro hac vice admission is ultimately determined by the court where they are requesting admission. Depending on the state where your lawyer is requesting admission, they may also be required to be associated with an attorney who has a licensed to practice law in that state.
When you hire an out of state attorney to represent your case, they will be able to represent your case in the same manner as an attorney in your state. The process for pro hac vice admission is very short, and in some cases, the procedure can be expedited. In general, hiring a pro hac vice attorney is not different than hiring an in state attorney and will not have any adverse impact on your case. The primary benefit to hiring a pro hac vice attorney for your out-of-state case is that you will have a knowledgeable attorney who is vastly experienced in defending cases similar to yours and will aggressively fight the false allegations against you.
