3.  How do I register as a Pro Hac Vice attorney?

Click here for the procedures on how to make a Limited Appearance in the State of Florida.

Once you have obtained a Portal registration number from The Florida Bar Association use that number as your Bar ID on the registration page. Florida has to be selected as the State.

Please note that the out of state attorney has to work with a local attorney (Florida) to obtain a registration number (Pro Hac Vice (PHV) number) from the Florida Bar Association. The Florida attorney has to be designated in the Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice. There is a required $250 fee for the Florida Bar Association which must be submitted with a copy of the Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice.

The out of state attorney will register through the portal using the PHV number obtained from the Florida Bar Association. Florida must be selected as the state.

After the account is established, the out of state attorney will need to file the Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice with the local court and pay an additional $100 filing fee.

4.  May I have more than one Portal Account
(User Name and Password)?

Yes. As a filer, you may be a part of an organization in which filing fees are exempt while at the same time accepting clients for which you will be subject to payment of fees. Your first account, if it matches the Florida Bar information, will be systematically approved. Subsequent accounts will be processed by the FCCC Service Desk.
