Pro Hac Vice Representation

Pro Hac Vice Representation refers to the application of an out-of-state lawyer to appear in court for a particular trial, even though he or she is not licensed to practice in the state where the trial is being held. The application is usually granted, but sometimes the court requires association with a local attorney.

Mr. Hammond is available to assist local counsel or parties in difficult or contested guardianship as well as conservatorship cases where local circumstances may warrant counsel with skill, experience, or perhaps a certain perspective not available on the local level. Pro Hac Vice Representation may also be considered when local circumstances causes concern about bias or prejudice toward a particular party or perspective.
