She has extensive experience  working with businesses to resolve legal issues in a way that focuses on business goals and the  bottom line.  A Minnesota native, Ms. Denton moved with her family to Arizona  and graduated from Arizona State Law School.   Ms. Denton’s law career began by working for the Arizona Appellate Court where she clerked for the Chief Judge.  She later served as general counsel for a large closely held Arizona corporation which had diverse multi-state subsidiaries and divisions,  including heavy equipment sales, rental and service, real estate development, an agriculture division, a heavy-haul trucking company, and an  international sales division.
