I think out-of-state practitioners should have to associate with a licensed practitioner in the state in question. I've never had a problem doing that, when my clients (in VA, MD and DC) had aspects of their affairs in other areas, and it would be irresponsible (and cause an increase in the malpractice premiums of the more prudent of us) to encourage lawyers to take on such work without having a clue as to local differences in the law and the rules.
