Wyoming Pro Hac Vice

Horizontal Navigation Bar w/Rollover Effect

Wyoming pro hac vice is available. An admitted under pro hac vice can practice in the state before any local board, state court, or governmental admin agency in the state. They will also be admitted if there is a transfer of venue or an appeal. The court can revoke their Wyoming pro hac vice admission at any time if it has jurisdiction. 

Eligibility under Pro Hac Vice

Attorneys must be:

  • In good standing in all other jurisdictions where admitted
  • Of good moral character
  • Cannot be residents of the state of Wyoming
  • Cannot be considered substantially involved with professional or business activities in Wyoming

Pro Hac Vice Application

The ability for an attorney to be admitted to a state based on pro hac vice is wholly dependent on the discretion of the ruling board, court or government admin agency. Usually an attorney in good standing and licensed in another state will be able to obtain Wyoming pro hac vice on a temporary status if they follow the application procedures as required.

A non admitted attorney must file an original and a copy of their application with the state bar they are seeking admittance. This includes a certificate from a state bar of which the attorney is currently admitted indicating they are in good standing and when they were licensed in that state. Of course, the attorney must also pay a fee equal to what active members currently pay in Wyoming, however it can be waived if the representation is based on a pro bono purpose.
