Bar News - April 6, 2007


Admission-by-Motion Brings Attorneys from Several States


At a special ceremony at the NH Supreme Court on March 20, 2007, there were 39 attorneys admitted to the NH Bar, 37 of them by motion. In addition to those admitted by motion, Mary Ellen Tedeschi was admitted by bar exam and Jodi N. Bourque was a readmission from inactive status. Only one attorney was unable to attend the ceremony.

 

Twenty-five of the new NH Bar members are men and 14 are women. Twenty-seven are over 40 years of age and 12 are 40 or under. Those working for firms number 22; three work for the government and three for corporations. Eight are solo practitioners and one is a U.S. Air Force judge advocate general (JAG) colonel.

 

Five of the six New England states were represented by these admissions: 18 came from Massachusetts, six from Maine, two from New Hampshire, two from Vermont and one from Rhode Island. The one remaining attorney is the colonel who is stationed in California.

 

Nineteen law schools were represented, the most far-flung being the University of Miami (Coral Gables) and Case Western Reserve University (Chicago).

 

One of the two lawyers admitted from Vermont had “read” for the law before being accepted by the Vermont Bar, a practice which only a few states allow.
