PCAO Paralegal Named ‘Legal Assistant of the Year’

FLORENCE, AZ - The Pinal County Attorney's Office is proud to announce one of its paralegals was named Legal Assistant of the Year.

Elle Deavult, a senior paralegal in the Major Crimes Bureau, won the 2022 Legal Assistant of the Year Award from the Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys' Advisory Council (APAAC).

Elle was nominated and subsequently won the award due in large part to her organizational skills, ability to coordinate with multiple agencies, focus on details, tenacity and overall office contributions.

Despite a large number of complex cases, Elle finds ways to consistently help not only both of her assigned attorneys, but also co-workers and supervisors. Such was the case when she assisted her colleagues on the transition to a new case management system based on her prior experience on the platform.

Elle is a valued member of PCAO, has earned the trust of her attorneys and deserves this recognition.

The Arizona Prosecuting Attorneys' Advisory Council (APAAC) was created by the Arizona Legislature in 1977. The primary mission is to coordinate and provide training and education to prosecutors across Arizona. The organization serves approximately 885 full-time state, county and municipal prosecutors.
