On January 19, 2016, Grand Rapids attorney Britt Cobb of Willey & Chamberlain was admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. She traveled to Washington, D.C. for the Supreme Court admission ceremony, which preceded the oral arguments scheduled before the Court that day.
Gerry Morris, President of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL), moved for her admission, along with nine other NACDL members. Chief Justice John Roberts granted her admission and she was sworn in before the entire Court.
This admission allows Britt to practice before the United States Supreme Court, including submitting petitions for writ of certiorari and arguing any cases in which cert is granted.
Willey & Chamberlain’s Chip Chamberlain and Larry Willey are long time members of the bar of the United States Supreme Court.
