David Hicks’s Legal Rating & Professional Standing

He has consistently and without exception been in good standing with every State and Federal Court to which he has been admitted to practice, including the U. S. Supreme Court, the four California federal district courts and the state of Maine, as well as all courts in New York. He was specially admitted phv to practice in the Chancery Courts of Tennessee (sports case) and Delaware (Bank of the West merger—class action case) and succeeded in meeting his client’s objectives in each court.
