A Conversation with Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery
Bill Montgomery will share his insights on critical legal issues in our state and county at this informative special edition of Hot Topics and Lunch.
Bill Montgomery was first elected Maricopa County Attorney in a Special Election in 2010 and re-elected in 2012 on a pledge to fight crime, honor victims’ rights, and protect and strengthen our community. As a West Point Graduate, decorated Gulf War Veteran, former Deputy County Attorney and a professional prosecutor, he has dedicated his personal and professional life to serving others.
Bill earned his J.D. from ASU’s College of Law, graduating Magna Cum Laude and receiving the Order of the Coif. As a prosecutor with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, he quickly gained a reputation as a tough but fair prosecutor and served as the Bureau Chief of the Auto Theft Bureau before becoming County Attorney.
Bill has also helped shape legislation designed to protect victims of crime and reform Arizona’s child welfare system, to include the creation of the Office of Child Welfare Investigations and helped create the Department of Child Safety. Bill continues to be a passionate advocate for Crime Victim Rights in Arizona and he also recognizes a citizen’s right to defend his or her family without fear of prosecution.
