PBA Mock Trial - RJG

RJG Associates Volunteer as Jurors for the 2020 PBA Young Lawyers Division Mock Trial Competition

On Tuesday, January 28, associates Nick Marinelli and Christyan Telech of our Business & Finance Department, and Rob Gawlas and TJ Jensen of our Litigation Department, volunteered as jurors for the 2020 PBA Young Lawyers Division Mock Trial Competition.

The Mock Trial Competition runs throughout the state, and local high school teams from Luzerne and Schuylkill counties participate in simulated trials at the Luzerne County Courthouse, in which local judges preside over the “case.” Jurors score the teams based on PBA-established criteria and the teams compete to advance to the Pennsylvania state finals held in Harrisburg on March 27th and 28th.

The winner of the Pennsylvania competition advances to the National Championship in Evansville, Indiana in May. Our firm is proud of the efforts of our associates in participating in this great event and congratulates the Young Lawyers Division and all of the participants in the event.

RJG - Rockin' Raffle

Dream Builders: Rockin’ Raffle

Our own Nick Marinelli, an associate in our Business & Finance Department, is participating in Leadership Wilkes-Barre. His group, Dream Builders, is asking for community members to play a role in a project that will make a huge difference in the lives of foster youth in our community.

Their goal is to acquire and install a new play area in the back yard of Brandon’s Forever Home (BFH) in Hazleton, in order to give the foster youth that receive services at BFH a safe, fun space to enjoy. Right now, they are holding a Rockin’ Raffle! Tickets are $25 each and only 200 are being sold. The grand prize winner will win 2 tickets to all three shows in Hershey: Motley Crue/Poison, the Hella Mega Tour (Weezer/Fallout Boy/Green Day), and Journey/The Pretenders. To purchase a ticket or to learn more about their project, please visit https://www.facebook.com/LWBDreamBuilders/ or contact any member of the Dream Builders team on the their Facebook Page.
