In a profile by the Arizona Capitol Times, then Arizona Corporation Commission Chairman Gary Pierce was asked about Jordan and responded, “Nowadays, you turn around and say, ‘Oh Jordan’s doing that and that too. Jordan’s firm is representing that group and that group.’ And she got there because she works hard. She’s unafraid to do what it takes to ethically advocate the positions she’s been hired to take.” Of her ability to come up with creative solutions to complex problems, Arizona Supreme Court justice, Clint Bolick, said, “It’s very instinctive for her, and that’s unique. It’s not something they teach you in law school.”
