Happy Law Day from The Maddox Law Firm!

May 1, 2013 is Law Day, but it is not celebrated by the common folk. "We the People," started this Nation with our Constitution a few years back. Then President Eisenhower declared May 1st should be observed as Law Day. It was originally the idea of one Charles S. Rhyne, acting president of the ABA from 1957-1958. 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation written by President Lincoln, where part-free/part-slave men were given equal rights. That Proclamation paved the way for Reverend Dr. King some 50 years later to lead the Civil Rights Movement and give the profound famous speech, "I Have a Dream." Rev. Dr. King wrote in a letter from a Birmingham jail, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."  Please find below the link to President Obama's Presidential Proclamation regarding Law Day 2013.

Virginia Bar Ranks 4th in Difficulty

This spring, if you were admitted to the Virginia State Bar, you should be proud of your accomplishment. Passing the bar exam in Virginia is nothing to sneeze at. Virginia ranks 4th in the list of the toughest bar exams, surpassed only by Delaware, California and Oregon. Three states- Alaska, Idaho and Nevada tie for fourth place with Virginia. On a 200-point grading scale and according to NCBE, the Delaware bar cuts its scores at 145, California at 144, Oregon at 142 and the tying four states at 142. For those sitting for the Virginia bar when the boiling point is 100 °C, these numbers look steamy.
