Betsy Chestney selected to be United States Magistrate Judge

It is with great pride that Cornell Smith Mierl & Brutocao, LLP announces that our partner, Betsy Chestney, has been nominated to serve as a U.S. Magistrate Judge for the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, San Antonio Division.  We will post details regarding the investiture ceremony for the Honorable Elizabeth S. Chestney when they are finalized after her official appointment 

 This appointment is well-deserved and reflects both the degree of respect for her intellect and confidence in her judgment that are shared by her partners, clients, and fellow colleagues in the bar.   While the bonds of friendship will follow her, she will be deeply missed.   “Law:  the only game where the best players get to sit on the bench.”  (Anonymous).   Congratulations, Betsy.
