Jahna Lindemuth, 46, will be the state’s second female attorney general. August 24, 2016

Lindemuth’s first day as Alaska attorney general — the job pays $138,000 a year — was Aug. 8. She only had to move down the hall from her old partner-in-charge office at Dorsey and Whitney to her new digs with the Alaska Department of Law on the sixth floor of the Brady Building in downtown Anchorage.

In addition to her private work, Lindemuth is known for providing free legal work to people who need help. She played a key role in the Fairbanks Four case that ended in December, helping to challenge the convictions of four men for a 1997 murder they said someone else committed.

Lindemuth will face a confirmation decision by the Legislature this spring.

Alex DeMarban, Nathaniel Herz: Jahna Lindemuth, 46, will be the state’s second female attorney general.
