Orlando Injury Attorney Mike Damaso Coaches Barry University Students in Mock Trial Competition
Having competed in mock trial competitions while a law student at Barry University, Orlando injury attorney Mike Damaso supported his alma mater by coaching two teams, along with local attorney Fermin Lopez, for the 2007 American Association for Justice Competition. The two teams competed in separate regional competitions on March 1-4, 2007, Las Vegas and Seattle.
The Las Vegas team won the region defeating California Western in the championship round and advancing to the sweet sixteen out of 224 team. In the words of Professor Mitch Frank, Barry’s Trial Team Faculty Advisor, the Seattle Team “was in its own way an equally amazing story.” None of the four students had prior advocacy experience and advanced to the regional semifinal round.
The Las Vegas team now advances to the National Competition and on March 29 in New Orleans and will compete against the fifteen other regional winners from law schools across the country.
Congratulations to both teams, Mike, Fermin, and Professor Frank – looks like Barry University will be the team to beat!
