Pursuant to Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.510, an out-of-state attorney wishing to appear in a Florida case must be granted permission by the court where the case is pending by filing a Motion to Appear Pro Hac Vice (PHV). A copy of the Motion is to be sent to The Florida Bar. The Florida Bar will send a letter to the movant with their PHV number.
The attorney must use the PHV number to register with the Portal and e-file future pleadings. Until the attorney receives their PHV number, all pleadings will be e-filed by the local attorney designated in the Motion. If an attorney has a pending case and needs a PHV number, a number will be assigned. For questions on obtaining a PHV number, call The Florida Bar at 850-561-5840.
