On Friday, February 10, 2023, Margaret H. Downie, Presiding Disciplinary Judge of the Arizona Supreme Court recommended to the Court the reinstatement of Phoenix attorney Jennifer Diann Murray. The case is styled “In the Matter of Jennifer Diann Murray”, case #2022-9086-R.

According to the court filing, Murray was suspended in 2015 for nonpayment of dues. Murray sought reinstatement by filing her application for reinstatement on November 1, 2022, and an amended application on November 29, 2022.

The filing states:

“After the State Bar completed its investigation, the parties filed an Agreement for Reinstatement (“Agreement”) on February 9, 2023, that is supported by stipulated facts, stipulated conclusions of law, and stipulated exhibits. The Agreement is incorporated herein by reference.”

The parties agree that Murray should not be required to take and pass the bar examination to establish competence because Murray has been suspended for more than 5 years, as provided in Rule 64(c) of the Arizona Rules of Supreme Court.

Accordingly, Judge Downie agreed that Murray’s waiver of the bar examination is appropriate and that Murray is fit to practice law, is competent to do so, and has complied with all discipline rules and orders, thereby, entered an order accepting the parties’ agreement for reinstatement and recommending Murray’s reinstatement to the practice of law.

Ms. Jennifer Diann Murray practiced in Phoenix, Arizona. She attended the University of Virginia School of Law. According to Avvo, Ms. Murray has been licensed in Arizona as well as in New York.
