Greetings to all,
We are searching for a pro bono Alabama attorney who is an expert in domestic violence and child abuse to work with a nationally known attorney to support a case pro hac vice.
This case involves a child and a wonderful protective mother who is advocating for her child, other mothers and their children and recently presented her testimony in Washington, D.C.
Time is of the essence. Please forward this request to your lists and call if we can help answer any questions or be of assistance.
Let’s help make a difference for this child and mother.

ADMISSION OF FOREIGN ATTORNEYS PRO HAC VICE
An attorney or counselor-at-law who is not licensed in good standing to practice law in Alabama, but is currently a member in good standing of the bar of another state, the District of Columbia, or other United States jurisdiction may appear as counsel pro hac vice in a particular case before any court or administrative agency in Alabama upon compliance with Rule VII, Rules Governing Admission to the Alabama State Bar.
A foreign attorney appearing as counsel pro hac vice is subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of this state.
To appear pro hac vice, a foreign attorney must associate in that cause an attorney who is a member in good standing of the Alabama State Bar (local counsel). A foreign attorney must then file with the court or agency where the cause is pending a verified application for admission to practice.
The application required by Rule VII shall be on a form approved by the Alabama State Bar and the Supreme Court. The granting or denial of an application for admission as counsel is discretionary with the court or administrative agency before which the application is made.For further information, contact PHV Admissions at (334) 269-1515 or firstname.lastname@example.org
