Attorney John A. Birdsall Admitted to The Bar of The United States Supreme Court



On Nov. 4, 2013, Attorney John A. Birdsall traveled to Washington D.C. to be admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. Admittance to the bar of the United States Supreme Court is a great honor for any lawyer. John is particularly proud of this accomplishment. While it is rare for a case to reach the United States Supreme Court, this honor is a validation of John’s experience and dedication which has made him one of Wisconsin’s best criminal defense lawyers. In order to receive this honor, a current member of the Supreme Court Bar must file a motion of nomination and then that motion must be granted by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
