During a distinguished 38-year career at the Department of Justice, Edwin Kneedler has represented the government’s interests before the Supreme Court more than any other attorney currently practicing law. He has personally argued 125 cases on matters ranging from immigration and heath care to affirmative action and free speech. As a top career deputy in the Solicitor General’s Office, Kneedler has lent his immense experience, institutional knowledge and credibility to help craft the government’s positions in hundreds of additional cases before the nation’s highest court, assisted attorneys preparing legal briefs and arguments, and served as the conscience and moral compass of the office.
