After months of applicants and interviews, Joseph Estes has been approved as the new Page City Attorney.  Estes has been a Mesa attorney working in a firm specializing in construction law. He is a former city council member of fast-growing Maricopa, the second-largest municipality in Pinal County. He also had served on the community’s planning and zoning commission.

The new attorney is ready to go with a start date of next Tuesday February 18th.  Estes will replace Robert Wingo, who took a job in the Valley in early December.

A city attorney generally handles all legal matters for the city, from traffic tickets to civil lawsuits to acting as a general counsel, giving legal advice for city departments.

Areas of focus may include:

  • Civil claims against the city
  • Criminal – prosecute misdemeanors and violations (felonies are usually prosecuted by a district attorney, State’s Attorney or Commonwealth’s Attorney)
  • Real estate – drug/alcohol nuisance, substandard housing or code enforcement
