John DeWulf has been recognized for the second time as one of the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services and Education’s Top 50 Pro Bono Attorneys for work he has done through the Volunteer Lawyers Program (VLP). Serving the organization for more than two decades, he earned this latest honor for his outstanding pro bono work on behalf of a senior who was at risk of losing his home.
The Arizona Bar Foundation created the Arizona Foundation for Legal Services & Education to level the playing field so that all Arizonans have knowledge and access to the justice system. Driven by his dedication to serving the community, John demonstrated his commitment to this mission when a real estate company deceived a retired disabled man into selling his home. John and his legal assistant Verna Colwell were able to save the client’s home and force the real estate company to pay the client $15,000.
In addition to his work with VLP, John’s stellar reputation as one of the Southwest’s finest litigators has earned him a variety of recognition. Chambers USA has ranked John as a top general commercial litigator since 2014. Best Lawyers in America© has honored him consistently in the practice areas of Bet-the-Company litigation and securities litigation, for which he was honored as “Lawyer of the Year” in 2018. Also, Southwest Super Lawyers regularly recognizes John for his business litigation, securities litigation, and professional liability defense practices, including him among the Top 50 Lawyers in Arizona for several years.
