For the second time in two years, I have been named to the Southwest Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” list. It is honor to be recognized and it is honestly humbling to be in the company of what I consider to be some of Arizona’s most capable and impressive lawyers. Being named a Super Lawyer Rising Star has many benefits. Most notably, itcreates confidence that the countless hours of hard work and zealous advocacy are being recognized by my peers and the Judiciary. However, it also comes with a responsibility. I am thankful to be selected but am dedicated to proving myself worthy of this distinction and honor. To any fellow lawyers or judges who may be reading this blog and who voted for me,I say thank you.
