Thank you to Sustaining Members Michele and Matt Feeney for hosting our Year-End Reception - on December 10, 2015. One of the busiest traffic days of the season, and we packed the house with holiday cheer.

Our biographical database serves as a meaningful structure to identify and advance excellence in lawyering, judging, policymaking, and statesmanship. More than validation -- our membership represents Validation In Action.
We are particularly proud of our Mentor Program, which paired 36 Sustaining Members with law students in 2013-14 and 40 in 2014-15. In March 2014 we selected the first recipient of the Arizona's Finest Lawyers/George H. Lyons Mentor Award. Congratulations Danny Ortega! We recently honored Christina M. Cabanillas as our second annual recipient. Our 2014-15 program encompassed all three Arizona law schools. For 2015-16, we are providing mentors to the second-year associates at the ASU Alumni Law Group, as well as second-year students at the Arizona Summit Law School and the James E. Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona.
As new Sustaining Members join, our ranks grow both qualitatively and quantitatively. Each Sustaining Member adds strength, diversity, and recognition to AFL’s role as a validation authority.
