Injury attorney Sakall appointed to Pima County Superior Court

Daniel Gregory (Greg) Sakall, a lawyer for accident attorneys Goldberg & Osborne, will sit on the bench of the Pima County Superior Court, Gov. Doug Ducey said Tuesday.

A 2001 graduate of the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, Sakall has worked for the firm that bills itself as "the injury lawyers" since 2004. His practice has focused on insurance bad faith, commercial trucking accidents, fire and explosion accidents, and dram shop liability, the company's website said.

Before entering privtae practice, Sakall clerked for Judges William Browning and Cindy Jorgenson of the U.S. District Court in Tucson for three years.

An adjunct professor at the UA law school, he has served as a judge pro tempore for the Pima County Superior Court and chair of the Rules Committee of the Pima County Bar Association.

Sakall graduated summa cum laude from Hillsdale College in 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and Spanish, Ducey's office said. Sakall was salutatorian of his graduating class. He graduated summa cum laude and Order of the Coif, and was co-valedictorian of his law school class.

"Greg is an intelligent and impressive litigator, and has demonstrated his commitment to the citizens of Pima County. His service as an adjunct law professor at the University of Arizona College of Law for the last 13 years is especially impressive, given that he also maintains a busy law practice," said Ducey in a news release about the appointment.

The appointment was made to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Carmine Cornelio.
