On June 14, 2013 Themis Advocates group hosted its first mock trial event in New York City. The event featured an interesting but simply devised wrongful death fact pattern, a former NYC Judge, a live jury comprised of NYC residents, and nationally recognized forensic experts including former chief of the NYC pathology department Michael Baden. Rick handled voir dire, cross examined a fact witness, and presented closing argument on behalf of the plaintiff. After the case was submitted, the lawyers and audience observed the jurors deliberate. The event was yet another great educational tool presented by Themis and its member firms. RLG is the Arizona member firm of Themis, a nation-wide network of small to medium sized firms dedicated to client service and education within the litigation industry.
