Review Richard Cruz

About Me

Richard Cruz, a native of Phoenix, Arizona, earned  a B.A. degree with honors in
1995 from the University of California, Irvine. Mr. Cruz earned his J.D. from
the Arizona State University School of Law. His law education included trips
abroad to Cambridge, England and Geneva, Switzerland. During the pursuit of his
educational credentials, Mr. Cruz worked as a clerk for the U.S. District Court,
District of Arizona, which set the foundation for his valuable trial skills.


In 2003, Mr. Cruz obtained his J.D. from the Arizona State University
School of Law. Mr. Cruz continued to enhance his trial skills by successfully
completing the Arizona College of Trial Advocacy program offered by The State
Bar of Arizona. With over nine years of legal experience, and admittance to the
Arizona Supreme Court, the United States District Court, District of Arizona and
the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit in 2004, Mr. Cruz demonstrates
the same knowledge and analytical skills usually witnessed from attorneys with
longer tenures.
