Alexander Kolodin is a partner at Davillier Law Group and the head of its Phoenix office. He also serves as co-counsel to the Arizona Republican Party and as part of the core national legal team for the Guardian Defense Fund, an organization dedicated to protecting election integrity and freedom of speech.
Over the years, Mr. Kolodin has served as lead counsel in a variety of high-profile political matters. In 2014, Mr. Kolodin litigated and prevailed in one of the first cases establishing that metadata stored on election tabulator computers is a public record under Arizona law. More recently, Mr. Kolodin won what is perhaps the seminal election case of the past decade. In Arizona Public Integrity Alliance v. Fontes, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that every Arizona voter has standing to challenge violations of election law by public officials and abolished the balancing test for preliminary injunctive relief in such cases. On the other side of the coin, Mr. Kolodin successfully defended the lead contractor of the Arizona Senate’s election audit from attempts to obtain a preliminary injunction.
In addition to his political practice, Mr. Kolodin also has extensive expertise in the fields of commercial litigation and personal injury. He has represented commercial landlords and a variety of other businesses in high-dollar litigation. As a result of these experiences, Mr. Kolodin has frequently been invited to speak at events like Phoenix Startup Week and had the opportunity to teach a course on Business Law at Grand Canyon University’s Colangelo College of Business.
But Mr. Kolodin’s practice is not limited to representing high-profile politicians and companies. One of the most gratifying aspects of his career is representing individuals who have suffered serious injuries and ensuring that they have the peace of mind of financial stability. He enjoys putting the skills he has honed dealing with complex political and commercial cases to work, helping ordinary people get fairly compensated by insurance carriers.
Mr. Kolodin graduated, cum laude, from Georgetown University and the University of Pennsylvania Law School, where he was a Dean’s Fellow. During law school he was a member of the Federalist Society and worked as a Reagan Fellow at the Goldwater Institute’s Scharf-Norton Center for Constitutional Litigation. He is admitted in the state and federal courts of Arizona, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of the United States.
