About Us

Bar Admissions

Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell attorneys are admitted to practice in many states and before numerous federal district and appellate courts, as shown in the following chart.  Where needs of our clients dictate, in states where a firm attorney is not admitted to practice, we will associate with local counsel, seek pro hac vice admission, and take other appropriate actions as required to comply with the state ethical rules applicable to practice law by out-of-state attorneys.  Our attorneys are comfortable navigating the complex web of state rules on multi-state practice and are assiduous in complying with such rules.
