Michael Geraghty J.D. ’78, an Anchorage attorney, will be Alaska’s next attorney general. Geraghty was born and grew up in Fairbanks before joining his current Anchorage law firm in 1979.
Geraghty has received national recognition in his handling of cases in personal litigation and construction law. He is a commissioner with the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws. The appointment will go to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees for consideration.
The full legislature will have to approve the appointment in a joint session, although Geraghty can begin the job before then.
