Attorney Ross L. Sundeen, past president of the North Dakota Association for Justice, has been honored by his government colleagues and elected president of the North Dakota States Attorney’s Association (NDSAA).
NDSAA provides North Dakota prosecutors with continued education and training, and unifies the voice of prosecutors on local, state and national legal policy.
Sundeen said he’d earned the respect of his peers and adversaries for his commonsense approach to public service by being fair handed and truthful in pursuit of justice.
“A true call to public service is to work for the common good,” says Sundeen.
“If you want to be good a public servant, you need to effectively apply seven core values: responsiveness, integrity, impartiality, accountability; respect; leadership and human rights.”
According to Sundeen, NDSAA embraces those core values and strives to improve public service through education and strategic and innovative policy advice to build confidence in government.
Sundeen, who is a 1993 graduate of the University of North Dakota School of Law, served as Dunn County States Attorney’s for 18 years, McKenzie County Assistant States Attorney for 20 years, and currently practices law with the firm Johnson & Sundeen in Watford City where he continues to represent government part time.
