BREAKING NEWSCave Creek Council chooses law firm

CAVE CREEK – The Cave Creek Council terminated Dickenson Wright, formerly Mariscal Weeks, on May 18, 6-1 with Mayor Vincent Francia dissenting. Although Dickenson Wright served the town for 16 years, this council strongly felt they weren’t serving the town well.

In a special meeting on Wednesday June 10, the council met in executive session to interview ten law firms. Council met in executive session at 5:30 p.m. and finished at 9 p.m.
After the council was seated they quickly and unanimously chose the Sims Murray, Ltd. Law Firm.

Jeff Murray was already the town’s lawyer with the risk pool and is defending the town’s interests in the proposed horse trail paralleling Gerald Freeman and my easement. Both Murray and his partner Bill Sims are highly regarded attorneys.

Francia was impressed with the attorneys they interviewed and thanked them for undergoing the scrutiny of council.

Welcome to Bill and Jeff!
