Polsinelli's Maria Fernanda Hubbard Appointed to Serve on Attorney Ethic Advisory Committee
Maria Fernanda Hubbard of Polsinelli’s Phoenix office has been appointed to serve a three-year term on the Arizona Supreme Court Attorney Ethics Committee. Chief Justice Scott Bales issued an Administrative Order establishing the committee, which will issue formal opinions on issues of ethics, professionalism, and the unauthorized practice of law.

As a member of the newly formed 15-member committee, Hubbard will receive questions from the State Bar, any State Bar member, non-attorneys, and the Supreme Court.
