Can an attourney outside the state of california give legal

Resolved Question:

Can an attourney outside the state of california give legal advice on a case filed in the state of california

The attorney can give advice, and can even represent a party if he/she applies to be admitted "pro hac vice". If the attorney is not familiar with the particular laws of the state, or has not researched the law, he/she should make this point clear to the clients.

 

However, it is not uncommon for attorneys to practice in several states.
