On May 31, 2017, Ray Ortiz graciously sponsored Megin Koch for her swearing-in at the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, San Antonio, Texas. The Honorable Fred Biery, who has known Megin’s parents for many years, performed the ceremony and administered the oath. Megin reflected on the day, saying “As always, being admitted to practice in a federal court is an honor and a privilege. Judge Biery made the proceedings entertaining, while also stressing the seriousness and importance of our Constitution and the citizenry’s access to the courts. It was a pleasure to sign the Attorney Roll Book, and to find Ray’s name signed in 1993”.
