ARIZONA'S LAW SHORTS: New AZ AG Mayes Brings In Dan Barr, Experienced Litigator, As Chief Deputy AG

Although there has not yet been an official announcement, Arizona's Law can confirm that experienced litigator Dan Barr will become the Chief Deputy AG in new Attorney General Kris Mayes's office. Barr today filed a notice of withdrawal from representing private citizen Mayes in the Abe Hamadeh Election Contest in Mohave County.

Barr has been practicing at Perkins Coie, and litigating cases in the area of civil litigation involving constitutional, employment, media and political law issues. He has practiced law for more than 30 years, and also represents the First Amendment Coalition of Arizona and several news media organizations.

Barr tells Arizona's Law that he will start on the 17th, and that he's making the move "to make a difference" in our state.

"AZ Law" includes articles, commentaries and updates about opinions from the Arizona Supreme Court, U.S. Supreme Court, as well as trial and appellate courts, etc. AZ Law is founded by Phoenix attorney Paul Weich, and joins Arizona's Politics on the internet.
