Kudos to my niece, Aimee Ezzell!!!

I am very proud to report that my niece, Aimee Ezzell, just recently passed the North Carolina Bar Exam on her first attempt. She attended Wake Forest University for her undergraduate degree, finishing first in her class. Subsequently, she worked for three years at a law firm in Washington, DC, and then attended Yale Law School. Over the years, Aimee has worked at law firms in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and in Wilmington, NC and at the Unrepresented Nations and People Organization (UNPO) in The Hague, Netherlands. She also clerked for the Honorable Rosemary Barkett on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Miami, FL.

Aimee has taken and passed the bar on her first attempt in New York and California prior to passing the Bar in North Carolina. These two states have the most difficult Bar exam in the USA. To put Aimee’s latest success into perspective, only 53% of the people who took the Bar in North Carolina this spring did so successfully. Congratulations, Aimee…I am very happy to be able to brag about you! It is worth noting that she accomplished this task while we as a family were all camping out at the hospital with my mom. Nonetheless, I never once doubted that she would succeed.
