May 4, 2015

On May 31, 2011 Barrett R. King, Esquire, an associate attorney at Elville & Associates in the Columbia, Maryland office, was admitted to the United States Supreme Court in a formal ceremony. Following the ceremony, Mr. King and peer inductees met for a luncheon attended by Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.To have the right to appear and argue cases in front of any court, a lawyer has to seek admission and be sworn in by that court. For example, all Maryland lawyers are admitted to practice before the Maryland Court of Appeals, which gives them the right to practice in any state court in Maryland. To practice in the US Supreme Court Bar, a lawyer must be sponsored by attorneys already admitted to the Supreme Court and appear for a swearing-in before the Justices in attendance.
