We are also able to assist attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions who seek pro hac vice admission in Wisconsin. This is a two-step process.
An attorney seeking admission pro hac vice in Wisconsin must file an application with the Office of Lawyer Regulation, along with a $50 registration fee. The application is available here.
After submitting the application, Wisconsin local counsel must file a motion with the trial court in which the matter is pending for pro hac vice admission of the out-of-state attorney. The motion must be accompanied by a copy of the completed application to OLR along with the supporting materials and proof of payment of the fee, by either photocopy or affidavit.
Some counties also have local rules concerning pro hac vice admission, which must be followed in addition to the statewide rules. For example, Milwaukee County requires that attorneys seeking pro hac vice admission attest that they will abide by the court's local rules. Some counties do not have specific local rules, but follow local procedures that may vary by judge.
