Strasburger Partner Elizabeth Copeland Nominated to U.S. Tax Court
Strasburger & Price, LLP (Strasburger) is proud to announce that President Donald Trump has nominated our partner Elizabeth A. Copeland, for Judge of the United States Tax Court.
“The firm is incredibly proud of Elizabeth and her accomplishment,” said Dan Butcher, Strasburger’s Managing Partner. “This nomination confirms that she is one of the finest tax attorneys in the country and is highly regarded by her peers in the legal community. All of her colleagues at Strasburger know Elizabeth will be an outstanding judge.”
The United States Tax Court is a court of record established by Congress under Article I of the U.S. Constitution and is composed of 19 presidentially appointed members. While the Court is physically located in Washington, D.C., the judges travel nationwide to conduct trials in various designated cities. The nomination requires senate approval.
San Antonio Partner-in-Charge Marty Roos added, “I have worked with Elizabeth since 1992 and know she is a preeminent tax litigator. I believe her passion for justice, fairness, upholding the law and helping others is extraordinary; she will bring exceptional talent to the bench.”
