Licensure and certification. All States, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories license physicians. To be licensed, physicians must graduate from an accredited medical school, pass a licensing examination, and complete 1 to 7 years of graduate medical education. Although physicians licensed in one State usually can get a license to practice in another without further examination, some States limit reciprocity. Graduates of foreign medical schools generally can qualify for licensure after passing an examination and completing a U.S. residency.

Absolutely not. You may hire any attorney you wish, so long as they are licensed to practice before the specific court in question. If you are referring to the US Supreme Court, then the attorney needs to be licensed to practice before the US Supreme Court, as well as in a federal court within the circuit they may need to file. I'm not certain, but that attorney may also need to be licensed to practice within the state in which the federal circuit lies. If you are referring to your State Supreme Court, then that attorney needs to be licensed to practice in that particular state. The information you obtain at this site is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. You should consult with an attorney for individual advice regarding your own situation.

Good luck with that. Your better off trying to scratch up some money and trying to have it done in Mexico. Most doctors in Mexico do twice as many as doctors in the US and are much more experienced. Check out the link below I think it costs about 6500 or so in Mexico may be cheaper in some cities.
