David Tierney Is Inducted into MCBA Hall of Fame
Sacks Tierney partner David Tierney has been inducted into the Maricopa County Bar Association Hall of Fame. The induction of David and four other honorees was part of the MCBA’s 2016 annual meeting on October 27 at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix.
The MCBA Hall of Fame seeks to honor in perpetuity “those remarkable individuals who have built the legal profession in this county and beyond, made extraordinary contributions to the law and justice, and distinguished themselves at the highest levels of public service.”
Since its inception in 2008, the Hall of Fame has inducted 32 “Pioneers” and, with yesterday’s honorees, 98 “Modern Era” members. Joining David as 2016 inductees were Steven Hirsch, Hon. Barbara Rodriguez Mundell, Daniel R. Ortega Jr., and Jose de Jesus Rivera.
David Tierney’s induction recognizes his nearly 50 years of leadership in fostering the development of Arizona’s legal community. He co-founded and has chaired the State Bar’s Construction Section; co-founded and chaired the State Bar’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Section; co-edited the State Bar’s Construction Law Practice Manual; was a contributing editor of the MCBA’s Litigation Manual; and is a former ASU College of Law adjunct professor of Construction Law.
The 1965 Harvard Law School graduate and former Peace Corps volunteer also serves as chair or board member of five prominent civic organizations.
