Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.An admission to a civil case on a Pro Hav Vice basis provides that attorney with all of the benefits that a local attorney would have including the right to appear in court as a formal member of the bar. Consequently if local attorneys are permitted to appear via phone, the Pro Hac Vice attorney can likewise request such permission from the judge--it would still be up to the judge to grant permission, but it couldn't be denied purely because this is a foreign attorney.Good luck.
