Darrow K. Soll 1966-2005     Named after the legendary lawyer Clarence Darrow, Darrow K. Soll was passionately committed to securing justice for the accused.  He was born and raised in Glendale, Arizona, in a large and active family.  He served his country in the U.S. Army Ranger Battalion of the 82nd Airborne Division, earning numerous military awards for his courage and achievements.

He earned a B.A. degree in Russian from Arizona State University and attended the Norwich University School of Russian Language, where he received the A.S. Pushkin Award for Highest Academic Achievement.

Darrow graduated with honors from Arizona Law in 1992, having served as the Articles Editor and writer for the Arizona Law Review, and was an active member of the law school community.

Over the course of his career, Darrow pursued justice with the law firm of O’Connor Cavanagh, the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, the Pima County Public Defender’s Office, the Maricopa County Public Defender’s Office, and Quarles & Brady LLP. His practice was diverse and included corporations, public officials, law enforcement, professional athletes, and celebrities, in
addition to the many “ordinary people” whose  causes he took up as his own.

He was an inquisitive learner and a gifted teacher at the James E. Rogers College of Law where he was a member of the adjunct faculty and shared his talents and skills with countless others as an instructor for continuing legal education and professional development workshops. He wrote numerous newspaper articles and was frequently featured as a legal consultant on MSNBC and CNN.

His life in the law continues to be a source of inspiration and pride for those who were fortunate enough to be his friends and colleagues.
