Clarke Greger
Don’s career is a long list of service to both the legal community and Arizona as a whole, including having served as the president of both the Maricopa County Bar Association and the State Bar of Arizona. He has led, partnered, and formed some of the most notable organizations and committees in Arizona and nationally. He is the founding president of the Thurgood Marshall Inn of Court and a current member of the American Law Institute. He leads internal investigations for corporations and special committees of corporate boards on a variety of issues.
With more than 30 years of leadership, Don has contributed to the community beyond the legal profession. He acted as co-chair of the Equal Justice Campaign, assisting in raising $5 million to help legal aid in Arizona.
At his own church, Saint Barnabas in Scottsdale, he has served as Senior Warden and Chancellor.
