isa Curtis and the lawyers and staff of Curtis & Lucero are dedicated to finding justice for their clients who have lost beloved parents, children, or spouses, or who have suffered catastrophic damage as a result of poor medical care. “Medicine is a business now,” says Lisa Curtis, the firm’s founding partner. “Finding accountability for the people who have been hurt, and having an impact by making medical care safer, is the point of our practice. A fundamental part of being American is that no corporation or person, no matter how big or powerful, can refuse to be accountable when they wrongfully take or damage someone’s life.”

Joining Curtis at the firm are three attorneys—partner Amalia Skogen Lucero and associates Joshua Curtis and Kinzer Jackson—along with a long-term, experienced support staff. Together, this team handles a varied and challenging caseload. “Malpractice cases are particularly challenging intellectually and are expensive to prosecute. Experience makes an enormous difference in the outcome of the case,” notes Curtis, who has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America. Among its recent results, the firm secured a $2.5 million verdict in a wrongful death case where a New Mexico nursing home gave a patient

an MRSA infection that took her life. Curtis and her colleagues also handle specific cases for children who have suffered sexual abuse. “These are incredibly tough cases, but they need to be done,” says Curtis, who also works to strengthen the law for children and the vulnerable through the legislature, the courts, and the New Mexico appellate courts. In addition, Curtis is trustee of the LK Curtis Children’s Fund, which donates to worthy organizations that improve the lives of children. The people at the firm see their work as a way to make a positive difference in the world, and Curtis is honored to be recognized among the nation’s Best Lawyers.

allagher & Kennedy’s corporate and securities law group is here to take care of business. The full service law firm’s corporate and securities group provides cradle to grave legal services—from choice of entity and formation to the ultimate sale or end of life dissolution, and everything in between. “We manage commercial transactions and day-to-day contractual work for our clients,” says Tim Brown, lead attorney of the tax law practice and corporate law group member. “We handle all matters of corporate governance, from the preparation of bylaws, to shareholders agreements, to internal disputes between shareholders and directors. The team also assists public companies with regulatory compliance, and helps with mergers and acquisitions, private equity transactions, and preparing private placement memorandums seeking exemptions from the registration of securities.” The competencies of Gallagher & Kennedys’ corporate law group are seemingly endless and the practice group has worked with every type of business client, from startups to Fortune 500 companies, from corporations to LLCs to tax-exempt organizations and nonprofits. Part of the key to the corporate law group’s success, says Terry Thompson, lead attorney of the corporate law group, is that the attorneys give their clients their all. “We provide timely, high-quality service. And as business lawyers, it’s incredibly gratifying for us to help our clients achieve their business goals in what are ultimately win-win situations, where everyone has accomplished something at the end of the day.” The firm is proud of its strong commitment to a work-life-balance for attorneys and staff, too, says Brown. “Everyone works very hard, but we try to insure that folks have their priorities in order in terms of family and work. We encourage a family-orientation and have a friendly, collegial atmosphere in our office.” The bottom line, perhaps, is that Gallagher & Kennedy and the corporate law group have values: they value their clients, value their employees, value hard work, and place a high value on the variety and excellence of the service they provide. ■

Fennemore Craig: Theresa DwyerFederhar (appellate practice, 2013) was elected to the board of directors of the Herberger Theater Center.

Ballard Spahr: David J. Bodney (advertising law; First Amendment law, 1995) contributed an op-ed article to The Arizona Republic, “Lawmakers want to hide what police officers see,” arguing that an Arizona State Senate bill that would prohibit the release of the names of police officers involved in death or serious injury until 90 days after an incident should be opposed because it would decrease police accountability. William A. Hicks III (corporate law; mergers & acquisitions law; municipal law; public finance law, 2003) received the Adoption Sustaining Award of Excellence from the Children’s Law Center. Hicks has volunteered at the Children’s Law Center for many years, helping concerned relatives and others get custody of children whose parents are unable or unwilling to care for them.

Freedman Boyd Hollander Goldberg Urias & Ward: Nancy Hollander (bet-thecompany litigation; criminal defense: nonwhite-collar; criminal defense: white-collar, 1989) is the attorney for Chelsea Manning, the transgender Army private serving a 35year sentence in military prison for releasing classified information to WikiLeaks. In 2014, Hollander filed a request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain records of the FBI’s investigation into Manning. Hollander recently filed a complaint against the government for denying the request, arguing that, because the FBI’s investigation records were not used in Manning’s military trial for the same crimes, the records cannot be part of an ongoing investigation and are not exempt from release under the FOIA.

Bryan Cave: George C. Chen (intellectual property law, 2012) is president of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association and recently led the NAPABA in calling for the U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to investigate the rising number of criminal prosecutions of Chinese Americans by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), GEORGE C.

including Jones, say has been used to target transgender women, when she accepted a ride from an undercover police officer. The charges against Jones were dismissed when Jones’ JEAN-JACQUES CABOU legal team appealed an initial guilty verdict, but the law itself remains unchallenged.

Quarles & Brady: John A. Harris (bankruptcy and creditor debtor rights / insolvency and reorganization law, 2009) and Lori L. Winkelman (bankruptcy and creditor debtor rights / insolvency and reorganization law, 2013) represented the bankrupt in-flight shopping catalog SkyMall in its sale of assets to C&A Marketing for a sum of $1.9 million. The catalog once reached an estimated 650 million airline passengers each year on airlines such as Delta and Southwest; its bankruptcy has been attributed to several factors, including the rise of on-demand wireless internet on airplanes. W. Scott Jenkins (bankruptcy and creditor debtor rights / insolvency and reorganization law, 2015) joined as a partner from Ryley Carlock & Applewhite. Stephanie J. Quincy (labor and employment law, 2008) joined as a partner from Steptoe & Johnson.

IN THE NAME OF SERVICE A t Gallagher & Kennedy, the attorneys have always understood the importance of being a positive influence in their community. That firm tradition continues and is expressed nowhere better than with the firm’s personal injury and wrongful death practice group. They know that their work doesn’t start with a lawsuit any more than it ends with a settlement or verdict. Whenever possible, G&K’s injury team not only helps its clients achieve fair and full compensation for catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims, but also transforms that tragedy into constructive change to prevent similar disasters in the future. “We think of it as paying social rent,” says Patrick J. McGroder, practice group chair and Lawyer of the Year in Phoenix for personal injury litigation. “We are very selective taking cases. We want cases that create positive social change, recall cases, and cases that result in legislation that improves safety. We help our clients while helping the community at large.”

And the injury lawyers at Gallagher & Kennedy have made a name for themselves successfully doing just that. Together, the group’s 13 attorneys have centuries of combined experience representing the victims of devastating injuries and have won more than $500 million for those clients in Arizona and across the country. “We really believe in what we do, and we have a lot of compassion for what our clients are going through,” says Lincoln Combs. Combs and group members Ray Norris, Bob Boatman, Mark O’Connor, Jeff Pyburn, and Shannon Clark were selected for inclusion in 2016’s Best Lawyers for personal injury litigation. “Catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death can impact the client for the rest of their life,” says Combs. After the Yarnell Hill wildfire killed 19 firefighters in Yarnell, Arizona, in June 2013, McGroder, Clark, and Combs represented families of the fallen first responders. In addition to securing financial compensation for the families,

Gallagher & Kennedy’s personal injury group rights wrongs—for their clients and for their community. they worked with experts, safety agencies, and members of the Arizona State Department of Forestry to secure improvements in wildland firefighting practices and procedures, with a mutual goal of making Arizona a model of best practices for wildland firefighters around the country. “We help people who have suffered unthinkable tragedy,” says Clark. “But our work goes well beyond financial compensation. We feel a social obligation to do what we can to help ensure preventable injuries aren’t recurring tragedies; that work is not limited to the courtroom.” Indeed, while pursuing the wrongful death litigation, McGroder and Clark successfully tried three cases before a local benefits board to secure lifetime retirement benefits that had been denied to families of some of the fallen. Backed by the support of a large, full service firm with the resources to tackle the most complex and difficult cases for those who have been injured due to the negligence of others, the plaintiff’s personal injury attorneys at Gallagher

& Kennedy keep a perspective on humanity at the forefront of their work. In the last five years alone, Gallagher & Kennedy attorneys have spearheaded efforts to secure passage of the Motorcoach Safety Act, which now requires seatbelts on motor coaches; achieved results that enacted recalls and safety modifications of firetrucks, police vehicles, and sport utility vehicles; aggressively pursued litigation to effect positive changes in health care management and transportation safety (aviation, automotive, and road design); and proposed and obtained legislation enhancing safety at trampoline parks. “So often, investigating our clients’ claims reveals that their injuries are not isolated, but are part of a much larger systemic problem,” says Bob Boatman, who was recently nominated to serve as co-lead counsel for plaintiffs in the federal multidistrict litigation involving Bard IVC filter defect cases. Boatman and O’Connor are currently in litigation on behalf of a client who became paralyzed as a result of a hospital chain’s “no leakage policy” and unwillingness to send a patient to an unaffiliated hospital. “When we learn of malfeasance on a corporate level, we have a responsibility to our clients and future potential victims to bring that malfeasance to the light.” “Service should always be at the forefront of a personal injury lawyer’s thoughts,” adds O’Connor, who undertook years of pro bono representation of victims and families of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks to the Victim’s Compensation Fund. “To us, ‘personal injury lawyer’ means advocate, counselor, advisor, social architect, and shoulder to cry on. Our emphasis is always on service.” www.bestlawyers.com

Nancy Hollander Criminal Defense: Non-White Collar Albuquerque, NM ■ Nancy Hollander is not your run-of-the-mill criminal defense lawyer. Globe-trotting and highly sought after, Hollander practices with Freedman Boyd Hollander Goldberg Urias & Ward P.A. in Albuquerque, is an associate tenant at Doughty Street Chambers in London, and gives occasional lectures on the finer points of criminal defense law in the U.S. and Europe. While recently in London, Hollander was invited to teach visiting Swedish lawyers what she calls “the art of cross-examination,” and was subsequently invited to speak in the fall to the Swedish Bar Association in Stockholm. No stranger to a controversy or the spotlight, Hollander currently represents former U.S. army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, convicted of espionage for her disclosures of classified material to WikiLeaks, and two detainees at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. One of the detainees Hollander represents at Guantanamo is Mohamedou Ould Slahi, who has been held since 2002 and has never been charged with a crime. Hollander has worked completely pro bono as lead counsel on Slahi’s case since she met him in 2005. “Slahi has written a bestselling book, Guantanamo Diary. He has a movie contract, and the book is now out in 17 languages, with 10 more coming out in translation soon, “she notes. “Tragically, he is not out.” In 2010, Hollander and her cocounsel won a habeas corpus case for Slahi, and a judge ordered his speedy release—this ruling was

quickly appealed by the Department of Justice, however, and they are still fighting for his release. Hollander also represents Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Gitmo detainee facing the death penalty for his alleged involvement in the U.S.S. Cole bombing. She works with military counsel in that case, and her efforts are paid for by the American Civil Liberties Union. “AlNashiri is being tried in a military commission, if you can call that a court,” says Hollander, adding: “It’s not really a court in my view—we all wear little kangaroos on our lapels.” Hollander may not have always had the high profile cases and the public intellectual credibility that she’s built now, but one gets the sense that she has always had a strong sense of ethics and responsibility to those she defends—she’s been in practice for 37 years and you can tell that the experience has only sharpened and polished her wit and her compassion. “The most rewarding cases are those that never go to trial and nobody knows anything about,” says Hollander. “I usually tell clients early on that although everything looks bleak, something good will come of this, and they don’t know what it is yet, but it will happen. A good criminal defense lawyer is someone who devotes themselves to their client’s case from beginning to end, realizing that this case is the most important thing in a client’s life— whether it’s DWI case or a murder case, it really doesn’t matter.” By Nathaniel Barr
