Pro Hac Vice Admission

In order to be admitted to the bar of this court pro hac vice, a motion must first be filed in the action in which the attorney seeks to be admitted. The motion cannot be filed by the attorney seeking admission, but must be signed and filed by a member in good standing of the bar of this court. Note, it is the duty of the moving attorney to first verify the bar admission status of the attorney he or she is sponsoring for admission to the court pro hac vice.

The motion must be accompanied by an affidavit stating that the attorney: is a member of the bar in good standing in every jurisdiction where admitted to practice; there are no disciplinary proceedings pending; and the attorney is familiar with the Local Rules of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts. Refer to Local Rule 83.5.3.

A filing fee is required with the filing of the motion for each attorney seeking admission. The amount of the fee is posted on the court's fee schedule and is not refundable should the motion be denied.
