Lincoln High School’s mock trial team took third place (out of 75 teams) in the 2019 statewide high school mock trial competition championship. The Lincoln High team took first place in the regional competition as well.
Founding Shareholder, Rob Shlachter, along with his wife, Mara, have been coaching high school mock trial teams for 23 years. They have coached to four state championship designations, earning the titles in 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2018. They earned state runner-up in 2008.
Over the years, Stoll Berne attorneys have been active in coaching, mentoring, and volunteering for this event sponsored by the Classroom Law Project. Steve Berman, Nadia Dahab, Yoona Park, and Josh Ross, along with former Stoll Berne attorney Mark Friel, have all participated. The students use the firm’s space for practice and preparations.
“Mara and I are honored to have participated all these years with these wonderful, intelligent, and bright students. Even more rewarding is watching them grow with the process as well as staying in touch while they make their way in to their futures. Congratulations to the mock trial team of Lincoln High School!” says Rob Shlachter.
