From the Carl David Ceder Attorney at Law website
Carl received his Juris Doctorate Degree from the University of Houston Law Center in December of 2007, graduating in just under 27 months. He sat for, and successfully passed the Texas Bar examination earlier than most of his classmates, and was admitted to the State Bar of Texas on May 2nd, 2008. Carl excelled in many advocacy-related activities while in law school, most notably as a senior member of the University of Houston Interscholastic Mock Trial Team. Carl traveled as a student attorney every semester while participating on the team, including representing the Law Center at the American Association for Justice (AAJ) National Student Trial Advocacy Competition, and the Tournament of Champions Trial Competition hosted by the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA) in Denver, Colorado. While in law school, Carl served as a criminal law clerk for the United States Attorney’s Office, Southern District of Texas and also in Dallas, Texas for the plaintiff’s law firm, Waters & Kraus. Carl obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance in just three years with a dual minor in Accounting and Management from the Red McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to law school, Carl worked as an analyst in the Finance industry for Goldman Sachs. Carl is a fifth generation Texan, and is proud to live in the state where he was born and raised. Carl graduated salutatorian (2nd out of 436 students) from Austin Lanier High School, and perhaps his proudest accomplishment is starting both ways on his varsity football team, including playing on the 1998 26-4A district champion Lanier Vikings. Carl is also the proud son of a former Austin area Texas High School Football Coach. He believes that many of the same fundamentals that lead to success on the football field (discipline, work ethic, and preparation) also apply to winning in the courtroom.
