Managing Attorney Ernest Calderón, a native of Morenci, Arizona, has more than 20 years of experience in Arizona. From 1990-2004 he was a partner with Jennings, Strouss & Salmon, PLC, one of Arizona's largest and most prestigious law firms.
During the course of representing a diverse client base ranging from entrepreneurs and emerging businesses to some of Arizona's largest private and public sector employers, he has developed the skills and experience to handle legal issues ranging from routine day-to-day matters to complex business transactions and litigation.
Mr. Calderón is skilled at providing advice and dispute resolution techniques that can help keep a client out of situations requiring costly litigation. However, if litigation becomes necessary, he has extensive experience representing clients before administrative agencies and has litigated cases in Arizona's state and federal trial courts and before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
Mr. Calderón also has substantial in-house legal experience with some of Arizona's most prominent companies, having served for several years as the Director of Legal Affairs for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Arizona, and as a litigation attorney for Arizona Public Service Company.
