Governor Jan Brewer Announces Appointment of Superior Court Judge in Yavapai County
PHOENIX - Arizona Governor Jan Brewer today announced the appointment of attorney Anna Young to the Yavapai County Superior Court.
Ms. Young is a solo practitioner in Prescott who primarily handles family law matters and insurance defense work, as well as guardianship and conservatorship matters. Prior to opening her own legal firm in 2007, she was a partner with the Prescott firm Boyle, Pecharich, Cline and Whittington from 1999 to 2007, and an associate with the Jensen Law Firm from 1997 to 1998.
In 1994, she graduated with honors with an undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona, and received her law degree from the University of Arizona College of Law in 1997. She became licensed to practice law in Arizona that same year, and is an active member of the Yavapai County Bar Association. Ms. Young is involved with several community organizations and has served on the Board of Directors of the Yavapai Big Brothers Big Sisters since 2005.
"Anna Young has a reputation of honor and integrity, and is known for her professionalism inside and outside the courtroom," stated Governor Brewer. "She is well-respected by her opposing counsel and all others in the legal system who have had the opportunity to work with her."
This appointment was made to fill the vacancy created by the recent passing of the Honorable Thomas B. Lindberg, who admirably served the citizens of Yavapai County for 11 years as a superior court judge.
"It is an honor to appoint Anna Young to the Yavapai County Superior Court," said Governor Brewer. "She is an outstanding attorney who will serve the citizens of Yavapai County well as their newest judge."
