"In August 2023, I argued before a Fifth Circuit panel in a case involving the first amendment and sovereign immunity. I took the lead in writing the appellate briefs, and, after the Court granted oral argument, the partner and client agreed that I knew the case better than anyone and would give us the best shot at winning the appeal. As a third-year lawyer, I never imagined that I would have the opportunity to do an oral argument in federal court. And make no mistake—I got this opportunity because I work for McGinnis Lochridge. It’s a firm where hard work and talent are rewarded with responsibility and confidence. Which is exactly what drew me to McGinnis Lochridge. As an associate, I am entrusted with meaningful opportunities to represent clients firsthand before judges and juries in state and federal court. It’s a lot better than carrying someone’s briefcase." - Ian Davis, Associate
