Ruth McChesney Admitted to the U.S. Supreme Court Bar

Long-time DMCA Managing Partner Ruth McChesney, currently Of Counsel to DMCA, was admitted to the U.S. Supreme Court Bar earlier this month. She summarized her experience as follows:

“It was an extraordinary experience being formally sworn into the U.S. Supreme Court Bar by Chief Justice John Roberts with all the Supreme Court justices after hearing four decisions. I was impressed by the solemnity of the process and was privileged to hear Ruth Bader Ginsburg issue a majority opinion (https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/18pdf/18-525_m6hn.pdf) on a jurisdictional issue of a discrimination case. Afterwards, Justice Ginsburg visited with the new members. I learned and appreciated that she has grown fond of Richard Strauss’s opera “Der Rosenkavalier” (about a woman growing old) and I was honored when she said she was “proud that today we have sworn into the U.S. Supreme Court Bar more women than men”. Later that afternoon, I attended a by-invitation-only Conversation with Associate Justice Clarence Thomas who was quite engaging. It was quite a day in D.C.

I am proud to be a female, Hispanic immigrant and privileged to be a member of the legal community fighting for and representing so many in the immigrant community, and equally privileged to represent so many foreign investors and professionals, and U.S. companies with their global mobility needs. It is truly an honor to continue to advocate for what is right.” –  Ruth McChesney
