In addition, Sara Agne has been appointed to serve a two-year term on the Committee. Both appointments begin July 1, 2016. The Committee was established by Chief Justice Rebecca White Berch on June 11, 2012. The Committee will periodically conduct reviews and analyses of the Arizona Rules of Evidence, review all proposals to amend the Arizona Rules of Evidence, compare the rules to the Federal Rules of Evidence, recommend revisions and additional rules as the Committee deems appropriate, entertain comments concerning the rules, and provide reports to the Arizona Supreme Court, as appropriate. Refo served on the committee since its inception.

She chairs the firm’s professional liability litigation group. Refo recently received the President’s Award at the annual State Bar of Arizona Convention. Trish is a frequent speaker at international, national, state and local continuing legal education conferences, including annual meetings of the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Bar Association, the American Patricia Refo Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the CPR Center for Dispute Resolution, the Sedona Conference, the Judicial Conferences of the Seventh and Ninth Circuits, the Western States Bar Conference and various state bar conventions. She is former Chair of the ABA Section of Litigation and a former member of the Evidence Rules Advisory Committee of the United States Judicial Conference. She presently serves as Chair of the House of Delegates of the American Bar Association. Agne’s practice is concentrated in government relations and health care matters, including litigation, compliance and regulatory issues, federal and state legislative matters, and professional liability defense. Her experience includes appellate matters, election law and constitutional issues, statutory and rule-drafting matters, immigration matters, criminal defense, licensure board matters, and public records and subpoena issues.
