Maggie Robertson with the Yavapai County Attorney's Office has been named the Arizona Outstanding Legal Assistant of the Year for 2012. The award was given to Robertson on Friday, Nov. 2, at the APAAC (Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys Advisory Council) Legal Assistants Seminar in Gilbert, Arizona.

Robertson has worked in the Yavapai County Attorney's Office for over 25 years and has been the sole paralegal for the Civil Division for the last 20 years. She provides litigation services to the Civil Division attorneys, including legal research and trial assistance.

Robertson was recognized for the key role she played in the recent litigation by the Yavapai County Attorney's Office to obtain injunctions against all known retailers of synthetic drugs such as "spice" and "bath salts." Robertson worked to gather affidavits from over one hundred community members, including law enforcement, paramedics, doctors, hospitals, mental health professionals, schools and users, detailing the horrors of synthetic drugs. These affidavits were crucial to obtaining the Temporary Restraining Order and to the successful outcome of the case. She also assisted with the drafting of pleadings and organization of the litigation.

Sheila Polk, Yavapai County Attorney, stated, "Maggie is always there with a smile on her face but serious in purpose. Day in and day out, her work is superb and she is clearly deserving of this statewide recognition. I am so proud of her and her accomplishments."

Robertson was joined by her husband Jim and her mother-in-law, Gerry Emmett, age 98, at the APAAC Awards Luncheon.
