On September 29, 2010, President Obama announced the nomination of Jimmie V. Reyna to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC).

Mr. Reyna is a partner in the Washington, DC office of Williams Mullen.  He sits on the firm’s board of directors, and directs the firm’s International Trade and Customs Practice Group.

The CAFC has nationwide jurisdiction of appeals arising from a range of courts, including federal district courts, the Court of International Trade, and the U.S., Court of Claims. The jurisdiction of appeals also arises from a variety of agencies involving a number of subject matter areas, including international trade, government contracts, patents, trademarks, and certain money claims against the United States government.


With over three decades of legal experience and 24 years as an international trade practitioner, Mr. Reyna is well qualified to serve on the CAFC bench. Mr. Reyna has been a valued and effective advocate for corporate clients in a broad range of U.S. and foreign venues. He has authored numerous books and articles on international trade, trade policy and customs. He has earned a stellar reputation as a practitioner and a scholar.

Mr. Reyna has a long record of service to the legal profession and the community. He served on numerous positions in the American Bar Association (ABA) and the HNBA. He served as HNBA National President from 2006-2007. He founded the HNBA Journal of Law and Policy, and has served as its Editor-in-Chief for many years.  He also has a record of service with the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda, the ABA Presidential Commission on Diversity and the ABA House of Delegates, and within the ABA International Law Section. For over ten years, Mr. Reyna has been a director of Community Services for Autistic Adults and Children, a service organization in Maryland. He has mentored many lawyers and law students over his 30-year career. In 2009, the Government of Mexico honored Mr. Reyna with its Ohtli Award, in recognition of his contributions to opening pathways for the Mexican-American and Latino communities in the United States.

The HNBA is an incorporated, not-for-profit, national membership organization that represents the interests of the more than 100,000 attorneys, judges, law professors, legal professionals, and law students of Hispanic descent in the United States, its territories and Puerto Rico.
