Welcome to Arizona’s Finest Lawyers
Our raison d'être is to identify lawyer excellence and inform client choice. As of December 1, 2011, we had identified just over 2,400 members in good standing of the Arizona Bar who met our selection criteria. This core group of active, inactive, and retired members were peer-reviewed and screened from approximately twenty-one thousand enrolled members of the Arizona State Bar Association. Two-hundred and twenty-two of those regular members elected to become Sustaining Members and are profiled here.
Over the course of the next few years, we will expand the database as more of Arizona's best lawyers, prosecutors, public defenders, legislators, professors, and legal thinkers are nominated for regular membership by their peers. Ultimately, our database will reach the top twenty percent of the bar.
This is the first biographical database to profile the mix of individuals seen here. We will continue to scour the lists, groupings, and gatherings of Arizona's best legal thinkers and doers. Everyone profiled in our digital directory will have demonstrated high skill, unquestioned integrity, and full commitment to the rule of law. They serve Arizona in many capacities. What links them is who they are, how they got here, and what they do to advance Arizona's legal, judicial, business, civic, and political communities.
AFL is neither an advertising agency nor a legal talent referral service. Our goal is to inform and validate excellence in lawyering, policymaking, and statesmanship. Those profiled here serve many clients, both public and private. Some charge for their services, all do pro bono work, and many serve the public in appointed or elected capacities. By mixing practicing lawyers, public officials, and leaders in business, civic, cultural, political, and social organizations, we intend to identify the best among us. We expect this biographical database to become a tour de force in Arizona legal circles.
