NATIONAL PRACTICE

Our legal practice spans beyond NJ, NY, PA and TX.

 

Although we have offices in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas, that is not the end of the story. Our firm handles many matters in states where it does not have offices.

Although the Nissenbaum Law Group has offices in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas, it is not limited to those jurisdictions. The firm handles cases in other states where it does not have offices. That is essential for a full-service commercial law firm with clients doing business across state borders. 

This is possible because there have been many changes to the rules that govern legal practice, the most significant of which are the Multi-Jurisdictional Rules of Professional Conduct. They stem from a model template promulgated by the American Bar Association a number of years ago and submitted to the Bars of all fifty states. The rules were adopted by a surprising number of those states. This represented an acknowledgment that although it was important to maintain the integrity a particular state’s Bar, there was also a corresponding benefit to clients nationwide being able to utilize one attorney in multiple states.

Accordingly, the Nissenbaum Law Group has utilized the multi-jurisdiction rules to handle transactions in states, such as North Carolina, Massachusetts, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nevada, Ohio, South Dakota and Georgia, to name just a few. The list of states in which the firm has practiced continues to grow.

There are a separate set of rules that allow out-of-state attorneys to handle lawsuits in jurisdictions in which they are not licensed. Those procedures authorize attorneys to obtain permission from the court in which a lawsuit is pending for admission on a pro hac vice basis. The Nissenbaum Law Group has availed itself of this procedure in such states as Florida, Texas, Nevada and Ohio.
