Information about Noah…

In 2013 Attorney General Bob Ferguson appointed Seattle attorney Noah Guzzo Purcell as the Solicitor General for the Washington State Attorney General’s Office.

Most recently, he, alongside Bob Ferguson, Judge James Robart, and Governor Jay Inslee played a major role in litigating Donald Trump’s executive order that restricted travel to the United States from seven Muslim majority countries.

Purcell’s diverse litigation experience includes constitutional issues, antitrust claims, environmental law, preemption, campaign finance, and administrative law.

Purcell served in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Office of General Counsel from 2009-2010, advising on security and immigration issues and working extensively on the federal government’s challenge to Arizona’s immigration law.

After graduating magna cum laude from Harvard Law School, where he served as an editor of the Harvard Law Review, Purcell worked as a law clerk to former U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge David Tatel of the D.C. Circuit.

A native of Seattle, Purcell attended the University of Washington, where he received a Mary Gates Leadership Award for his work founding and running Affordable Tuition Now!, a student advocacy group dedicated to keeping tuition at UW and other state universities affordable.
