Lindsey Obenhaus, associate attorney at Atkins O’Toole & Briner, and her father were recently sworn in together as officers of the U.S. Supreme Court. To become licensed to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States, an attorney must be admitted to the bar of the highest court of a state, be sponsored by two attorneys already admitted to the Supreme Court bar, pay a fee and take an oath.
This was an unusual father-daughter swearing in. Lindsey said this was a “bucket list” item for her father, James Galbraith, former solo practitioner who practiced in personal injury and medical malpractice.
“My dad is a former attorney who keeps his license active,” Lindsey says. “He loves courtrooms and litigation. He is trained in both law and medicine, and currently works as a physician.”
