About Me

Hi.  My name is Galen Satterlee.  For the last several years I have been ranked among the top 2.5% of lawyers in Arizona under 40 years old (SuperLawers Magazine) and practice law throughout Arizona (and beyond via temporary admission).  My practice places a particular emphasis on coordinating litigation for public and privately-held retail companies across the Western United States and representing victims of drunk and impaired drivers.  

I am particularly passionate about avdvocating for victims of drunk driving and work hard to ensure they have a voice in the criminal prosecution, as appropriate, and vigorously pursue any and all civil remedies available to them.   

Please follow me on Twitter @GalenSatterlee to keep up on my practice and other musings about golf and life.
