This map shows the Best Lawyersdesignated “metro areas” in this publication. In order to collect feedback on firm and attorney work within specific regions, Best Lawyers curates “metro areas.” For research purposes, smaller and more rural cities located within a reasonable distance to larger cities are combined into single geographical regions— metro areas—to help us collect as much feedback and data for specific individuals, firms, and practice areas, as possible. We also award “Lawyer of the Year” accolades through these metro area distinctions.

For more than three decades, Best Lawyers lists have been compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on our lists. Best Lawyers’ peer-reviewed listings are now published in almost 70 countries around the world, and our presence has grown substantially in the international legal community. In the U.S. alone, Best Lawyers lists reach more than 17 million readers through newspapers and regional magazines. The 23rd edition of The Best Lawyers in America (2017) includes 54,889 attorneys in 145 practice areas, covering all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and inclusion in this year’s publication is based on more than 7.3 million detailed evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers.

CLARE H. ABEL

ROOPALI DESAI

Clare H. Abel (real estate law, 2013) from Burch & Cracchiolo and Roopali Desai (civil rights law; commercial litigation, 2015) from Coppersmith Brockelman were named among the “Most Influential Women in Arizona Business” for 2016 by AZ Business Magazine.

ON THE MOVE

► Montgomery & Andrews: Deborah

E. Mann (medical malpractice law – defendants, 2013), shareholder at the firm, participated as a panelist among other regional legal and business leaders in the “FOCUS” summit hosted by the New Mexico Association of Commerce and Industry (NMACI).

► Osborn Maledon: David B.

Rosenbaum (bet-the-company litigation; commercial litigation; litigation – construction; litigation – intellectual property; litigation – mergers and acquisitions; litigation – securities, 2005) is representing the Gila River Indian Community as they fight to pause construction on the South Mountain Freeway. Federal Judge Diane Humetewa rejected the requests for a pause, to which Mr. Rosenbaum argued that continuing to allow construction to proceed could potentially lead to the damage that the appeal seeks to avoid.

► Freedman Boyd Hollander

Goldberg Urias & Ward: Nancy Hollander (bet-the-company litigation; criminal defense: general practice; criminal defense: whitecollar, 1989) represents Mohamedou Ould Slahi, a Guantanamo detainee whose memoir, Guantanamo Diary, is now being produced as a featurelength film by Benedict Cumberbatch. Slahi has been approved for release after serving 14 years in custody without a charge, alongside 31 other prisoners who have also been approved for release. The date of his release is still to be determined.

► Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie:

Robert G. Schaffer (antitrust law; appellate practice; litigation – antitrust, 2010) is one of 11 applicants for the two openings on the Arizona Supreme Court.

► Modrall Sperling: Roberta Cooper Ramo (arbitration; mediation, 2010) spoke at the New Mexico Bar Association’s annual conference in Sante Fe this August alongside U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Ramo was the first woman to serve as president of the American Bar Association (from 1995 to 1996) and was also the 2015 recipient of the American Bar Association’s highest award, the ABA medal.

Sanders & Parks: Mark Worischeck (aviation law; commercial litigation; insurance law; litigationconstruction; MARK WORISCHECK litigation – insurance; personal injury litigation – defendants; personal injury litigation – plaintiffs; product liability litigation – defendants, 2013) was honored with the 2016 Client’s Choice award by the International Law Office and Lexology.

► The Cavanagh Law Firm: Timothy

R. Hyland (insurance law, 2015) is one of five nominees from the Phoenix area for a new judicial role on the Arizona Court of Appeals.

IN-HOUSE & GOVERNMENT:

► Whitney Sedwick Meister

(employment law – management, 2016) left private practice to become corporate counsel at Best Western International. She was previously director of Fennemore Craig in Phoenix.

PRIVATE PRACTICE:

► Bacal & Garrison Law Group:

The past year has held a lot of changes for the previously named Bacal Law Group. After five years with that name, they became Bacal Andersen & Garrison Law Group in January when David B. Andersen (copyright law; trademark law, 2015) and Sean Garrison (commercial litigation; copyright law; litigation – intellectual property; litigation – patent; trademark law; technology law; trade secrets law, 2007) became named partners of the firm. In July, the firm changed names again to Bacal & Garrison following Mr. Andersen’s appointment to Brigham Young University’s counsel.

► David F. Gomez (employment

law – individuals; employment law – management; litigation – labor and employment, 1995) moved his practice from Phoenix to San Diego, California.

► Foran Glennon Palandech Ponzi

& Rudloff: Amy M. Samberg (insurance law, 2009) joined the firm in Chicago, Illinois. She was previously at Snell & Wilmer in Tucson.

He began his career by receiving a Bachelor of Science in 1968 from Northwestern University as a Clarion de Witt Hardy Scholar. From there, he went on to attend Northwestern University School of Law where he received a Juris Doctor cum laude in 1971. In addition to being able to practice law in Arizona state courts, Galbut can also practice before the U.S. District Court of Arizona as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He was also an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association and FINRA. Galbut is the cofounder and managing partner of Phoenix, Arizona’s Galbut & Galbut, P.C., where their main focus is business litigation and transactions. They assist clients throughout Phoenix with cases pertaining to securities law, shareholder disputes, antitrust violations, intellectual property protection, employment law, real estate dealings, and health care concerns. They fervently assess all legal situations and either pursue business litigation or provide arbitration and mediation services, depending on what is needed. On top of his work within his firm, Galbut has also lectured about his various practice areas at continuing legal education program conferences. He’s also published pieces about securities law, arbitration and mediation, and more. And on a more personal level, Galbut is a connoisseur of art and antiques, a talented painter, and was appointed to serve on Arizona’s Air Quality Control Hearing Board to combat urban air quality issues. Mr. Galbut also won the Arizona State Bar’s Creative Arts Competition in painting in 2016. Galbut & Galbut, P.C., works often with financial institutions and businesses to find solutions to a varying range of businessrelated issues. They tackle these situations with an enviable level of professionalism and skill, and their team of lawyers has been aptly awarded for their efforts throughout the years. Mr. Galbut has been listed with The Best Lawyers in America since 2001 for his work in business and securities and was also featured by SuperLawyers Magazine. Keith R. Galbut and Olivier A. Beabeau are also recognized by Arizona Business Magazine as Top Lawyers.

Gordon Lewis EDUCATION LAW

As a partner in Jones Skelton Phoenix, AZ & Hochuli’s Employment Law Section, Gordon Lewis works often with educational institutions—particularly K–12 schools—on employment matters that involve teachers. Lewis notes that it is rewarding to work for schools, as they almost always have their hearts in the right place when it comes to doing what is best for both teachers and students. “School employees have due process rights, and there are procedures that must be followed if you are going to discipline or terminate a teacher. Schools, and all employers, must also adhere to the state and federal laws that protect people from discrimination by virtue of their membership in a protected class. I most commonly work with districts on these issues, and they take both the rights of their employees and their responsibility to their students very seriously. I am certainly gratified to be able to help districts in circumstances where there may be people who should not be around children or teaching children. I’ve also recently been working with my clients on transgender employee and transgender student issues, and making sure that those employees and students are honored and respected in the educational setting.” Lewis became a lawyer after the bottom fell out of the financial market in 1988–1989. He studied economics at Pomona College in California, graduating in 1987, and became a banker in California. After moving to Arizona to be with soon-to-be wife, Kara Stuart Lewis, as she embarked on medical school, he couldn’t find a banking job, so he applied to the University of Arizona Law School and got in. Mr. Lewis is a member of the board of directors and an executive committee member of the Girl Scouts of Arizona’s Cactus Pine Council and has long been involved in pro bono service efforts in the Phoenix community, including past board membership with Community Legal Services, which provides direct legal services to the poor in family law, domestic violence, housing, and other critical areas of need. Lewis currently volunteers his time with the Morris Center for Justice, which addresses legal issues for the poor on a more systemic basis through collective actions and agency and legislative efforts. He has been listed among The Best Lawyers in America for education law, labor and employment litigation, and employment law – management since 2007.

New Mexico teeters on the edge of setting a national precedent as Special Prosecutor Randi McGinn determines the next step in a pivotal case.

COVER STORY

On the Precipice By Nicole Ortiz

and a Taser fired. Sandy and Perez then discharged their weapons when they allegedly believed that the K-9 officer, who had lost control of his police service dog, may be at risk. McGinn maintained that the police put themselves at risk by advancing on Boyd, didn’t allow him enough time to speak with a crisis intervention officer, and shot him in the side and back when he was surrendering. Another issue she cited with the case was that it relied on fellow officers for witness testimony on how the events unfolded, which created an inherent bias.

rosecutor Randi McGinn is working on a mistrial case that could set a precedent in regards to police shootings and use of deadly force by officers not only in New Mexico, but perhaps country-wide. In 2014, two New Mexico police officers, Keith Sandy and Dominique Perez, shot and killed a mentally ill homeless man, James Boyd. Boyd was confronted after a neighbor called the police, reporting that a man had been camping for a month in an area of the mountains behind his house where camping was not permitted. After the initial two open spaces officers began to pat down Boyd, he pulled out two pocketknives, and additional officers arrived in waves until there were a total of 19 officers surrounding Boyd, including Sandy and Perez. Although an officer with crisis intervention training was working and making progress with Boyd, Sandy and the K-9 officer with him requested that he instead secure the perimeter. The K-9 officer then began negotiating with Boyd, and although Boyd agreed to leave and began to depart from the scene, a flash-bang device was thrown

“We were hoping to create a template for these cases moving forward.” When the helmet camera video went live—the first police shooting video to be released to the public—frustrated citizens took to the streets and marched for hours. Between 2010 and 2014, Albuquerque police have fatally shot 28 people, a per capita rate that doubles Chicago’s and is more than eight times that of New York City’s. A Department of Justice report also revealed that most shootings by city police were unjustified and unnecessarily used deadly force or were circumstances where the officers’ actions had led to their need to use force. The case is one of the most important for Albuquerque. McGinn’s appointment to the case came after the local District Attorney was excused because of a conflict and no other prosecutor in the state wanted to review the controversial case. When no one else would prosecute, McGinn stepped in and agreed to handle the case for $5,400— the same amount contract public defenders receive for defending a first degree murder case. Since the police shooting of Freddie Gray, there has been a precedent of

appointing special prosecutors to criminal cases that involve police. McGinn is noted for having won a $6 million state court verdict against the Albuquerque Police Department and two officers for the 2011 fatal shooting of Christopher Torres, a 27-year-old paranoid schizophrenic man. Through their civil lawyers, Boyd’s family won a $5 million settlement in a wrongful death suit against the city; however, prosecuting the officers would prove to be trickier. Originally the officers were charged with an open count of murder in January 2015, with a preliminary hearing held in August 2015 and a trial that began in September 2016. After three weeks of a publically broadcast trial, the case was announced as a mistrial on October 11, 2016, when the jury deadlocked with three votes of guilty and nine votes of not guilty, leaving Perez and Sandy both charged with second-degree murder and Sandy also charged with aggravated battery. Given the polarized views across the nation on police shootings, the verdict came as no surprise to McGinn. She will now work with incoming District Attorney Raul Torrez to review evidence before deciding on how to proceed with the case. “We were hoping to create a template for these cases moving forward,” McGinn remarked, according to WXPI. “They need somebody outside investigating, whether they have an attorney general investigate them all, or put together a team of outside law enforcement.” At this time, it’s uncertain what the following months will hold for this case and if McGinn will continue to work on it. “Everything is on the table,” McGinn was quoted as saying, according to KRQE News 13. “I’m going to take a completely independent viewpoint on this. I may decide to dismiss the case altogether. I may decide that the pending charges are appropriate and proceed from there. And I may decide to file different charges.” W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM
