Gov. Doug Ducey has tapped Yuma attorney Brandon Kinsey to be appointed to the Yuma County Superior Court.
Kinsey, a founding partner of Garcia, Kinsey & Villarreal law firm where he practices civil litigation and business law, will fill the court’s vacancy left by Judge Maria Elena Cruz. Cruz was appointed to the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division One, according to an announcement.
Kinsey also serves on the Yuma Community Food Bank board of directors and is a past president of the Arizona Western College Foundation board of directors.
“Brandon has a reputation in Yuma County for professionalism and community service,” Ducey said in the announcement. “His work with the Yuma Community Food Bank and Arizona Western College, while also maintaining a busy law practice is remarkable. His dedication to the citizens of Yuma County and to the practice of law will make him an excellent Superior Court judge."
Kinsey is a graduate of Brigham Young University’s Marriott School of Management from which he received a Bachelor of Science in business management in 2002. He received his Juris Doctorate from Brigham Young University’s J. Reuben Clark School of Law in 2006.
