On Dec. 5, 2023, our founder Charles R. Frazier was admitted to practice before the US Supreme Court during the 38th annual Tennessee Bar Association Academy. A group of nine attorneys from Tennessee traveled to Washington, D.C. for the swearing in ceremony.
“Swearing the legal oath of practice before the highest court in our nation is an achievement for which I am very grateful and humbled,” Frazier said. “I don't take for granted the responsibility I have to my clients throughout the country, and I will continue to do my best to represent them with professionalism and proficiency in tax and estate planning law.”
The swearing in ceremony allows for Frazier to become a part of a limited number of Tennessee attorneys who are given the ability to practice in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. In a letter from United States Representative Scott DesJarlais, he commended Frazier saying, “this act, like many others throughout your life, exhibit the respect, love and natural interest you have in our Nation's legal system.”
Following the swearing in ceremony, Frazier team members stayed to observe oral arguments in the case of Charles G. Moore et al. v. United States, which centers on the constitutionality of the federal mandatory repatriation tax.
“We are extremely proud of Charles for this accomplishment,” said Rick Miller, Frazier Tax Matters-Advisory Team Lead. “Even more, the Law Offices of Charles R. Frazier can now take a client from filing a tax return to defending a position before the high court.”
