Timothy M. Hogan
Every successful advocate for social justice must both inspire and educate legislative and judicial leaders to examine old practices, recognize the inequities in institutional policies, and bring about the changes necessary to secure human and civil rights for all. No one has more of the patience and persistence necessary for successful advocacy than Timothy M. Hogan, Executive Director of the Arizona Center for Law in the Public Interest.
For twenty years, Mr. Hogan has worked tirelessly as the Center's Executive Director and lead counsel. During this time, the Center has won major victories for Arizonans in the areas of consumer rights, education, the environment and health care. Mr. Hogan also has been instrumental in the creation of Arizona's progressive energy standards, both for increased energy efficiency and the mandatory use of renewable energy resources.
Mr. Hogan has received numerous awards and honors in recognition of his selfless devotion to the public interest.
In 2015, he was inducted into the Maricopa County Bar Association Hall of Fame, joining 126 lawyers and judges honored for making “extraordinary contributions to the law and justice, and who have distinguished themselves at the highest levels of public service.”
In July 2011, Mr. Hogan received a prestigious award from the National Education Association for his work toward the achievement of equal opportunity for Hispanics.
Prior to joining the Center, Mr. Hogan was Chief Counsel for the Arizona Corporation Commission. He also served as an Assistant Arizona Attorney General in the Civil Rights and Financial Fraud Divisions, and as Program Director of the Phoenix Program at Community Legal Services.
Mr. Hogan received his undergraduate degree from Arizona State University and his law degree from the University of Notre Dame Law School.
