County Attorney Lauds Governor Brewer’s Appointment of Suzanne Cohen to Superior Court

PHOENIX, AZ (December 14, 2012) – Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery praises Governor Jan Brewer’s appointment of Deputy County Attorney Suzanne Cohen to the Maricopa County Superior Court. Cohen has successfully prosecuted numerous high profile cases during her 12-year tenure with the County Attorney’s Office and has extensive experience in corporate law.

“I am proud that one of our finest prosecutors, Suzanne Cohen, has been selected by Governor Brewer to serve the people of Maricopa County as a Superior Court Judge,” remarked Montgomery. “Having had the pleasure of working alongside Ms. Cohen and seeing her professionalism firsthand in court, I am confident that she will maintain the highest standards of conduct while serving on the bench. I wish her the best and extend heartfelt congratulations,” he added.

Suzanne Cohen is perhaps best known for her successful prosecution of the notorious “Baseline Killer” case, widely regarded as one of the worst serial murder and sexual assault cases in Arizona history. She was recently named Felony Prosecutor of the Year by the Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys’ Advisory Council and is a recipient of the Governor’s Award as Outstanding Sexual Assault Prosecutor, in addition to many other honors.

A graduate of Randolph-Macon Women’s College, Suzanne Cohen earned her law degree from Golden Gate University School of Law in 1997. At the MCAO, she has served as the Bureau Chief of the General Trial Group and the Family Violence Bureau, mentoring numerous attorneys during her time with the office. She has also served as an instructor for the National District Attorney’s Association and the Arizona Bar Association. Prior to her work as a criminal prosecutor in Arizona, she served in the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office in California.

Ms. Cohen will fill a vacancy on the bench created by the retirement of Judge John A. Buttrick.
