Gammage & Burnham was recently featured in the Volume 14, No. 2 issue of Attorney at Law Magazine© as their Lawfirm of the Month. The feature article discusses Gammage & Burnham’s new leadership and outlook for the future.
In 1983, Grady Gammage Jr. and Richard B. Burnham sat down at Clyde’s Bar in Washington D.C. and toasted to their future law firm. Now, almost four decades later Gammage & Burnham has built deep roots in the Arizona legal community with more than 30 attorneys and a cross-section of practice areas.
While its heritage as a locally grown firm may not be unique in the Arizona legal community, its innovation to continue into the next generation sets it apart.
Gammage & Burnham is proud to announce that seven of our attorneys have been named by Southwest Super Lawyers® as being among the top attorneys in Arizona for 2022. Three additional attorneys were named to the 2022 Southwest Rising Stars list.

On March 8th, 2022, AZ Central published an opinion piece from G&B Founder Grady Gammage Jr. Among the topics discussed are the proposed Arizona Water Authority, the potential for desalination as a long-term augmentation project, and the lessons learned from his 2021 study “Return to Watering the Sun Corridor“.
Legal Alert: Supreme Court Issued Stay On OSHA ETS Vaccine Or Testing Mandate For Companies With 100 Or More Employees
On Thursday, January 13, 2022, the Supreme Court stayed the OSHA COVID-19 vaccination or testing mandate for employers with 100 or more employees. This relieves large employers of the legal obligation to require employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide weekly negative COVID-19 testing. Employers, however, should still ensure that they are taking appropriate steps to prevent or limit the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.
The Supreme Court majority in NFIB v. OSHA focused on the fact that “OSHA is tasked with ensuring occupational safety” and enforcing standards “reasonably necessary or appropriate to provide safe or healthful employment.” The Court concluded that the vaccination or testing mandate exceeded OSHA’s authority to set standards for workplace safety, and amounted to a broad public safety measure.
Arizona’s minimum wage was increased by $0.65/hour to $12.80/hour effective January 1, 2022. This is an increase of approximately 5.3% from the $12.15/hour minimum wage in 2021, based on the rise in the Consumer Price Index from August 2020 to August 2021.
The new minimum rate for tipped employees was increased to $9.80 per hour.
