Setting Bounds on Lawyers Premission to Appear

In Kemp v. Florida East Coast Railway Co., 1 Fla. L. Weekly Supp. 385 (Fla. 4th Cir. Ct. May 13, 1993), the trial court denied a non-Florida attorney permission to appear pro hac vice after determining that members of the firm had "either appeared or moved to appear in approximately 25 cases in Florida" within three years. Id. at 385. The attorney in Kemp who was seeking pro hac vice admission had "appeared or moved to appear" in nine cases with nine different clients within two years. Considering the frequency of the appearances, this Court has a substantial interest in regulating the lawyers' practices.
