Share Article

Lujan plans to help expand The Foster Group’s presence in Arizona and continue his work to improve Arizona’s academic issues.

The Foster Group welcomes the addition of its newest partner to their Arizona office, David Lujan. David’s area of practice will focus on education law, employment matters, public policy issues, and a variety of other matters given his diverse and rich background. David served three terms in the Arizona House of Representatives, representing central Phoenix, as well as serving as the Arizona House Minority Leader. In 2010, David was a candidate for Arizona Attorney General. He also served for eight years as a member of the Phoenix Union High School District Governing Board, including two years as the Board President.

“One of the reasons I became a lawyer is to make sure that people get justice within our system,” states Lujan. “People need someone who can help them navigate the legal system; which in and of itself can be overwhelming. The slightest mistake can permanently derail even the noblest of causes. I’ve been in the courtrooms dealing with cases and I’ve legislated Arizona’s state laws. I understand the challenges our citizens, businesses, and institutions face and look forward to the opportunity to continue to be a part of the solution with The Foster Group. As a partner with The Foster Group, I will continue to make a difference.”

David was an Assistant Attorney General where he successfully represented the State of Arizona on a variety of public education issues including serving as the State’s attorney for a $1.4 billion school construction program and on the Open Meeting Law Enforcement Team. David also worked as an attorney for the National Labor Relations Board and as the attorney for a non-profit organization which provides legal services to help children who are victims of abuse. He is co-author of the book “Child Advocacy 101” which examines the child protection systems in America.

“We’re absolutely thrilled that David has joined our team. He’s an amazing talent. His passion, skill, and legal intellect truly go unparalleled. David is one of the finest lawyers in Arizona,” says Kristen Foster, managing partner of The Foster Group. “David has had such a positive impact on the state of Arizona, especially in the areas of education and child welfare. We fully expect that trend to continue in the years to come.”

David is the recipient of the 2010 Association of Family and Conciliation Courts Public Policy Award, the 2009 National Association of Social Workers Legislator of the Year Award, and the 2009 Greater Phoenix Child Abuse Prevention Council's Cherish the Children Award in Media/Public Policy. He received the 2009 Cesar Chavez Continuing the Legacy Award from the Latino Law Student Association of William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 2008, he received the "Golden Apple Award" from the AZ Parents for Education in recognition for his continued support for public education, the 2006 Arizona Students Association’s Legislator of the Year Award, and the Arizona Business and Education Coalition’s Legislative Partner Award. He is also a volunteer attorney coach for the Central High School mock trial team.
