Since the U.S. Supreme Court began historic telephonic arguments in May, more than two dozen attorneys have made their arguments to the justices for the first time in cases ranging from a water fight between two states to LGBT discrimination in foster parenting to “faithless electors.”

Some of the debut advocates are veteran appellate lawyers such as Wiggin and Dana partner Jonathan Freiman, who has argued extensively in state and federal appellate courts. Others are former Supreme Court clerks and law professors, including Aaron Nielson of Brigham Young University law school, who was tapped by the court to argue as an amicus curiae.
