    February 3, 2022 at 5:30 PM

    THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. Thank you for your interest in the Top 100 Lawyers in Arizona networking event. Our top priority is the well-being of our clients, customers, partners, employees, and event attendees. With that well-being in mind, we have decided the current climate is not right to host a networking event, so we have canceled the Top 100 Lawyers in Arizona gathering for 2022.

Thank you for understanding.

    Az Business magazine’s Top 100 Lawyers in Arizona are compiled each year by using an independent algorithm that weighs professional ratings, accomplishments and industry impact to determine the 100 most prolific attorneys in Arizona.
