The City Attorney is an integral part of the City’s management team and works closely with the City Manager and collaborates with key staff across all departments to provide legal advice and ensure projects are completed in a timely and responsible manner.

The City Attorney contract is at the direction of the City Council with a salary range of $124,032 - $186,048 and will depend on the qualifications of the successful candidate.

With unquestioned integrity and sound ethics, the City Attorney is considered a thought partner and works in the best interest of the City at all times.


The City Attorney has substantial local government law experience and leverages that knowledge to anticipate issues and proactively mitigate risk. The ideal candidate is thoughtful with a proven track record in developing strategies for legally sound positions.

A confident leader, the City Attorney navigates controversial issues with ease while still providing sound legal advice to advance City Council goals and initiatives.


A collaborative leader with demonstrated success in maintaining positive relationships internally and with intergovernmental partners and other stakeholders, the successful candidate creates an environment of trust and reliability. The City Attorney effectively engages in processes that enhance the productivity of the organization and creatively solves problems while aligning decisions to the City’s core values and mission. Considered a generalist, the City Attorney assists in all aspects of the legal needs of the organization and is actively invested in the success of both the organization and the community as a whole.

The ideal candidate calls Cottonwood home yet enjoys the opportunity for limited telework when necessary. The City Attorney is a contributing member to the community and appreciates the City’s history while helping the organization move forward with its structured future growth.

Marine Judge Advocate, Commissioned Officer in the United States Marine Corps


Have you or anyone you know thought about becoming an attorney in the United States Marine Corps serving as a Judge Advocate?

A Marine Judge Advocate is a commissioned Officer in the United States Marine Corps executing the following duties:
-In prosecution bringing felonies and misdemeanors to courts martial as a first chair.
-In defense upholding constitutional protections.
-As a Staff Judge Advocate advising commanders and generals while at home or deployed.
-In legal assistance providing legal advice on matters related to family, consumer, tax, estate, and immigration law.
-In civil law ensuring compliance with federal statutes and regulations.

The Marines are looking for certified bar attorneys from all walks of life who desire to practice law and lead their team of legal service clerks. Serving as a Marine Judge Advocate, you will gain incredible courtroom experience and leadership experience that many firms seek from their attorneys.

Some of the benefits include:
-Immediate courtroom experience as a first chair.
-Public Service Loan Forgiveness.
-Transferrable years of service to a federal attorney position.
-Full health care (including dependents).
-Life insurance.
-Non taxable housing allowance or free on base housing.
-Non taxable food allowance.

A commonly asked question is if the Marine Officer Program incurs a service obligation?
The answer is not automatically. The contracts are non-binding. This means that if you get selected to attend Officer Candidate School (OCS), you are still not obligated to serve any time in the Marine Corps until you choose to accept your commission at the completion of OCS. You do not owe any time, money, or service back to the Marine Corps if you decide to walk away before accepting your commission.

Knowing that, why wouldn’t you apply? If you want to learn more about this opportunity you can reach me via this email or via the number listed below. Thanks in advance for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

About the Position

Arizona, like the other western states, is conducting general stream adjudications of most of the state’s appropriable water. Currently, there are two general adjudications of rights to appropriable water that cover large areas of land in southern and northern Arizona. The general adjudications require users of appropriable water who wish to have a water right to file claims for those water rights. More than 100,000 claims have been filed by individuals, farmers, ranchers, small businesses, cities, tribes, mining companies, the State of Arizona, and the United States. Arizona Department of Water Resources (“ADWR”), which serves as a technical advisor to the court, investigates those claims and prepares reports. The court then considers the claims for water rights and the objections filed to the report prepared by ADWR and issues final decreed water rights.

The Arizona Supreme Court has appointed a water judge for the general adjudication proceedings. The water judge may appoint a special master. The special master is responsible for conducting hearings and other proceedings necessary to consider the claims for water rights and the objections filed to the ADWR reports. The cases are generally conducted under the Arizona Rules of Civil Procedures and can involve discovery disputes, motions in limine, dispositive motions, and evidentiary hearings. The cases run the entire gamut in terms of size and complexity. Once all of the claimed rights have been litigated for a watershed or a reservation, the completed abstracts, which have been assembled in a catalog of proposed water rights, are submitted with a final report and a recommended decree to the water judge for final consideration and a final decree. In addition to deciding individual cases, the special master will decide legal issues of broad legal importance to large numbers of claimants in the general adjudications. Those decisions are included in final reports that are submitted to the water judge for a final determination.

The Special Water Master, under the supervision of the Water Judge, is responsible for conducting hearings and other proceedings necessary to consider the claims for water rights and the objections filed to the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) reports.
