PHOENIX - Governor Jan Brewer today announced the appointment of Danelle B. Liwski to the Pima County Superior Court.
Ms. Liwski currently serves as a juvenile hearing officer for the Pima County Superior Court, a position she has held since 2003. Prior to serving in that capacity, she worked as a prosecutor with the offices of the U.S. Attorney and Pima County Attorney from 1991 to 2003. From 1990 to 1991, Ms. Liwski served as an associate with the law firm Richards & Pennington. She received her undergraduate degree from New Mexico State University in 1987, her law degree from the University of Arizona College of Law in 1990, and was admitted to the State Bar that same year.
"Ms. Liwski is known as a person of high ethics and integrity, and she has established an outstanding record as a Pima County Superior Court hearing officer," stated Governor Brewer.
