PHOENIX, Ariz.– Arizona Governor Doug Ducey recently announced the appointments of Sara J. Agne, Suzanne Scheiner Marwil, Justin Beresky, Lisa VandenBerg and Kevin Wein to the Maricopa County Superior Court. These appointments are to fill vacancies resulting from the retirement of five judges.

Beresky is a 1990 graduate of Grangeville High School. He is a Commissioner at the Maricopa County Superior Court. He graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelor of Arts in Education. In 1997, he earned his law degree from the University of Idaho College of Law.  

Beresky began his legal career in 1998 in a small civil practice prior to becoming a felony prosecutor in the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. In 2001, he formed Beresky & Fish where he practiced criminal defense law, family law, personal injury, bankruptcy, and general civil litigation. 

In 2013, he began serving as a Maricopa County Superior Court Commissioner. He has been assigned to the Probation Violation Court, designated a Special Assignment Commissioner, assumed two family calendars during the course of one year, completed an assignment on the criminal bench, and is currently assigned to a family calendar. 

“Justin’s versatility and ability to pick up any assignment and work to improve it is admirable,” said Governor Ducey. “He will be a great addition to the court.”
