Biography

As a member of the Litigation Practice Group, Arturo works with the firm’s litigators on a wide variety of civil and commercial litigation matters. He regularly adds value to litigation strategy development by conducting in-depth research and analytical writing on key areas of the law. His experience includes federal water law, federal and Arizona contract law, post-judgment relief, civil racketeering statutes, advertising law, and technology/intellectual property issues in the workplace.

While in law school, Arturo was actively involved in the Chicano/Latino Law Students Association, culminating in his service as the organization’s President from 2015-2016 year. That same year, the organization was selected as the 2016 National Law Student Organization of the Year by the Hispanic National Bar Association. In law school, Arturo was a school Moot Court finalist in both the Jenckes Closing Argument Competition and in the Oplinger Closing Argument Competition. Arturo was recently recognized as a 2016 Valdemar A. Cordova Scholar by the Los Abogados Hispanic Bar Association and was voted by his peers to serve as the 2016 Student Commencement Speaker at his law school graduation ceremony. Now, as a proud ASU alumnus, Arturo is regularly invited to speak at events for incoming students and helps welcome and encourage new law students at the law school.

Arturo is passionate about education advocacy. Before attending law school, Arturo completed two years as a Corps Member in the Teach for America program, where he taught American History to high school students on the Navajo Reservation in rural New Mexico. Arturo remains an active volunteer with several local youth outreach programs in Phoenix, and recently began his own educational scholarship, the “Mi Futuro” Scholarship, to benefit underserved students from his hometown high school in Taylorsville, North Carolina. Arturo is fluent in Spanish.
