PHOENIX, ARIZ. - The national law firm of Quarles & Brady LLP announced that Susan Brichler Trujillo, an associate in the firm's Phoenix office, has been selected as a Fellow in the Flinn-Brown Civic Leadership Academy ("The Academy"), a component of the Arizona Center for Civic Leadership.

This year, the Arizona Center for Civic Leadership selected 26 Arizonans as the fourth class of Flinn-Brown Civic Leadership Fellows. The Academy develops future state leaders through a structured 12-session seminar series that emphasizes skills and knowledge that will help them address Arizona's long-term issues. The seminar series is presented in the fall and spring of each year. The selection process includes an online application, endorsements from two Arizonans, and an in-person interview.

Brichler Trujillo practices in the areas of health law and litigation. Her practice includes the representation of commercial and individual health care clients in contract disputes, licensing and regulatory issues, and litigation matters and the representation of commercial health care clients and health care professionals before state agencies and regulatory boards. Last year, Brichler Trujillo was appointed to Community Legal Services' ("CLS") board of directors by the State Bar of Arizona's board of governors.

She earned her law degree from the University of Notre Dame Law School and her bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Arizona.
