PHOENIX, Ariz. (June 2, 2014) — The law firm of Gallagher & Kennedy announced today that shareholder Jennifer A. Cranston has been selected as the Co-Chair of the Steering Committee for the Valley of the Sun United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council (WLC).
The mission of the WLC is to build a powerful network of women who support the work of Valley of the Sun United Way by giving, advocating, volunteering and inspiring others to join in creating lasting change in the community. Established in 2011, the WLC has grown to 600 members who have invested nearly $800,000 to support education and youth in the Valley.
In addition to serving as Co-Chair of the WLC Steering Committee, Ms. Cranston will continue to serve on the Valley of the Sun United Way Public Policy & Advocacy Committee. She is also one of 18 Gallagher & Kennedy women attorneys who volunteer by reading to school-aged children as part of the Valley of the Sun United Way’s Million Minutes Reading Challenge.
Ms. Cranston focuses her practice on three primary areas: real estate disputes, including condemnation and valuation matters; insurance coverage analysis and bad faith litigation; and public utility regulation. In 2013, she co-authored the third edition of the Arizona State Bar Association’s publication of Eminent Domain in Arizona. She earned her J.D. in 2000 from the University of Arizona and her B.A., summa cum laude, in 1997 from St. Mary’s College of California.
