I am humbled that my years of doing work I love have led me to the U.S. Supreme Court bar. Admission to that court will allow me to more fully represent my clients since I can take their cause all the way to the nation’s highest court
Fresno, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 15, 2011
A longtime Fresno attorney was recently sworn into the U.S. Supreme Court Bar, an honor and privilege bestowed on only approximately 5,000 lawyers annually. Jeff Hammerschmidt, a former prosecutor now in private practice with Fresno’s Hammerschmidt Broughton Law Corporation, took the oath to be admitted to the nation’s highest court at the U.S. Supreme Courthouse in Washington, D.C. in early January.
“I am humbled that my years of doing work I love have led me to the U.S. Supreme Court bar. Admission to that court will allow me to more fully represent my clients since I can take their cause all the way to the nation’s highest court,” said Hammerschmidt, who is a certified Criminal Law Specialist by the State Bar of California.
According to Hammerschmidt, who has represented clients accused of crimes in both Federal and State courts for over 23 years, United States Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Jr. granted the motion to admit him to the bar of the nation’s highest court.
Hammerschmidt Broughton Law Corporation is a Fresno, California-based law firm specializing in criminal defense matters, including those accused in white collar crimes. Hammerschmidt has appeared on several television programs, such as American Justice, Dominic Dunne’s Power Privilege and Justice, and most recently, Discover Channel’s ‘Solved.’ He is "AV" rated by Martindale-Hubbell, is listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, and received the designation of Superlawyer by Superlawyers Magazine in 2010. In 2011, Hammerschmidt accepted an appointment to the Superlawyer Blue Ribbon Panel, a committee that rates attorneys for selection as a Superlawyer.
