Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

Yes, a party's attorney can appear without his/her client IF there is no reason for the client to be there --- namely to testify.

What about court hearing? When can you appear by phone?

Yes, the lawyer can go without you in any situation.....unless you have a summons requiring you to appear.

Whether or not the party can testify via phone is up to the judge.
