Can a lawyer who is not in the PA Bar Association represent a client in PA?

Asked over 5 years ago - State College, PA

My past employer is fighting a charge that I filed on discrimination with the PA Human Relations Commission. I just learn that their lawyer can only practice law in the state of Delaware. If they have a lawyer to represent them in lieu of the company representing themselves does the lawyer need to be able to practice law in PA?

    Answered . You are asking two different questions here. An attorney must be licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania in order to represent a client in hearings in Pennsylvania.

    BUT, the attorney does NOT have to be a member of the Pennsylvania bar association.
