Please Note the Following:
Pro hac vice attorneys also licensed in New Jersey - Attorneys who are licensed in New Jersey and who have paid the annual assessment are not required to pay an additional fee for pro hac vice admission. Attorneys licensed in New Jersey who maintain a bona fide office in any state or territory of the United States, Puerto Rico, or the District of Columbia need no longer be admitted pro hac vice to handle a matter in New Jersey. Rule 1:21-1(a).
Ineligible Attorneys - Attorneys who are ineligible to practice law in New Jersey due to nonpayment of fees are also ineligible for admission pro hac vice. They must first pay all fees due.
Only one fee per year - The fee is assessed once per calendar year per attorney. Attorneys admitted for additional cases within the calendar year should submit the appropriate paperwork; however, no additional fee is required. If a case continues into the next calendar year, the fee for that year will have to be paid. An attorney's appearance continues until either the matter is concluded or there is a substitution of counsel. The fee for the current calendar year is noted on the PHV-12 form.
Payment if admitted in Federal Court - Attorneys admitted pro hac vice in Federal Court in New Jersey are similarly obligated to pay. L. Civ. R. 101.1(c)(2).
