Arizona Lawyers for the Freedom to Marry


As members of Arizona’s legal community, we took an oath through which we promised to uphold the principle of equal protection and the due process rights safeguarded by the United States Constitution. Legalizing the freedom to marry for same-sex couples is crucial to fulfilling the promise of fair and equal treatment under the law for all couples in Arizona. No one should be treated unequally under the marriage laws because of who they are and who they love.

Allowing all loving, committed couples in Arizona to obtain a civil marriage license would strengthen Arizona by ensuring fairness and respect within our legal system and the community at large.

Arizona Lawyers Speaking Out for Marriage

Terry Goddard

Former Arizona Attorney General and Former Phoenix Mayor

“This is a matter of fairness under the law. As attorneys here in Arizona, we believe in equal rights and freedom for all.  And, marriage is a fundamental freedom.  We hope that one day soon, marriage equality will be the law of land.”

Andy Silverman

Joseph M. Livermore Professor of Law and Director of Clinical Program at the University of Arizona

“All across the country, judges from across the ideological spectrum have come to the same conclusion: same-sex couples deserve the dignity of marriage, and anti-marriage laws are indefensible.”

Grant Woods

Former Arizona Attorney General

“There is no legal justification to have one set of rules for straight couples and a different set of rules for gay couples. That’s not how we do things in America. This is nothing but discrimination.”

Tom Simplot

Former Phoenix City Councilmember

“As lawyers, we believe that allowing all loving, committed couples in Arizona to obtain a civil marriage license would strengthen our state by ensuring fairness and respect within our legal system and the community at large. Legalizing the freedom to marry for same-sex couples is crucial to fulfilling the promise of equal treatment for all of Arizona’s people.”
