Jennings, Haug & Cunningham announced, Tuesday, that the firm added two Arizona lawyers, Blake Whiteman and Brian Myers.
Whiteman and Myers, who both practice in commercial litigation, join the firm as partners. Whiteman is also an experienced family law and domestic relations lawyer.
Whiteman’s practice is focused in business disputes, construction and commercial litigation, including breach of contract claims, reputation management and commercial leases. His family law practice primarily involves representing successful business owners and individuals involved in complex high asset divorce and community property cases, white-collar and other criminal law.
Formerly a Judge Pro Tem for the Maricopa County Superior Court, Whiteman earned his law degree from the University of Nebraska College of Law in 1985 and graduated from Arizona State University in 1982.
Myers represents clients in a wide variety of commercial litigation, including matters involving commercial lending, construction, and real estate litigation.
He represented numerous financial institutions and equipment leasing companies in actions to recover equipment and other assets/collateral through the use of pre-judgment Orders of Replevin, coordinating with the U.S. Marshall’s Office and various County Sheriff’s Offices across Arizona as a result of this representation.
In 1996, Mr. Myers earned his law degree from Whittier Law School and received dual degrees, Bachelor of Science/M.P.A. from Arizona State University in 1990/1992.
