Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 04, 2012
Houston, Texas criminal defense attorneys, David Reddell and Jim Story traveled to Washington, DC recently to be formally admitted to the United States Supreme Court bar on April 23rd. The swearing-in ceremony means both of the lawyers are permitted to argue before the justices if a client's case results in a U.S. Supreme Court appeal.
“We pride ourselves on bringing a certain level of excellence to our criminal defense work, so this is a great opportunity to show that we are both willing and able to fight as hard as we can for our clients,” Reddell said. “Now that officially includes arguing their case all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States if necessary.”
In order to be eligible for the SCOTUS bar, Reddell and Story were required to show they were already admitted to the Supreme Court of Texas bar and be sponsored by two attorneys who have already been admitted to the SCOTUS bar. “It's an honor to be able to come to Washington, DC for this swearing-in ceremony and having a former law partner of Chief Justice John Roberts be one of our sponsors,” said Story. “It was important to us to be able to offer the very best in criminal defense, and this was the final piece of that for our firm.”
David Reddell is a former District Attorney who never lost a felony jury trial case. Jim Story, a former Assistant District Attorney, has exceptional courtroom experience, serving as lead prosecutor in more than 40 jury trials. Combined with his defense work, Story has led over 70 jury trials in virtually every type of criminal case.
