Law school alum takes reins of State Bar


August 18, 2010

Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law alumnus Alan Bayham Jr. (Class of 1976), the new president of the State Bar of Arizona, is featured in an article in the July/August edition of Arizona Attorney magazine, “Trust & Service,” by editor Tim Eigo.

The article traces Bayham’s roots, from his position as eldest in a family of 10 children who experienced a lasting trauma in 1969, to his position of respect and admiration as a Phoenix attorney and partner in the law firm of Bayham Jerman, PLC.

“Alan has always been motivated by an innate sense of fairness and justice. He has such a sense of professionalism and wanting to help,” said Greg Novak, a friend and lawyer at Kleinman, Lesselyong & Novak.

Added Michael Perry, of Carnahan Perry Hanlon & Hudson, PLC, “Alan’s word is truly his bond. If Alan agrees to something with opposing counsel, there is no need to memorialize it in writing, although we do so by habit. He has that Boy Scout quality of being ‘trustworthy.’”
