Richard A. (Dick) Segal, a partner with Gust Rosenfeld for 55 years, and founding Secretary of the Phoenix Community Alliance (PCA), was honored by friends and colleagues with a special tour of the Maricopa County Justice Museum on September 10, 2014. Segal, who passed away on April 18, 2014, was a lawyers' lawyer who loved the practice of law. He had requested that PCA members visit the Museum, which is on the 6th floor of the Old Maricopa County Courthouse, to gain an appreciation of the importance of the Rule of Law to the growth and development of Phoenix.
Segal was President of both the Maricopa County Bar Association and the State Bar of Arizona, and a fellow in the American College of Trial Attorneys. He served as an officer and legal counsel to the Phoenix Community Alliance, which is dedicated to the revitalization of downtown Phoenix.
The program featured Don Keuth, President of the Phoenix Community Alliance; Martin L. Shultz, immediate past chair of the organization; the Honorable Terry Goddard, former Arizona Attorney General and Mayor of Phoenix; and the Honorable Greg Stanton, Mayor, City of Phoenix. The Honorable Glenn Davis, former Maricopa County Superior Court Judge, led the tour of the museum.

Opened in 2012, it contains a restored cell block, which has been renovated to its full 1929 grandeur.

The museum is open Monday through Thursday from Noon to 1 p.m. and tours are available at 12:15 p.m. and 12:45 p.m. Group tours can be scheduled at email@example.com
