Felicia Jafferies, an Associate in Ericksen Arbuthnot's San Jose office, participated in the 2010 Santa Clara County High School Mock Trial Tournament on February 2, 2010. Ms. Jafferies and other local attorneys judged the first round of the tournament, which was held at the Santa Clara County Superior Court in San Jose, CA. The tournament was presided over by retired Judge James Chang.
Ms. Jafferies is the most recent attorney from the firm's San Jose office to participate in the tournament. In previous years, partners Steve Dollar, Sharon Hightower and Robert Gerhardt have all judged the competition on multiple occasions.
Sponsored by the Santa Clara County Bar Association, the event draws more than 400 participating students from schools throughout the County. The highest scoring team will go on to represent the County and compete against high school students statewide. The State Finals were held in Santa Clara on March 19-21, 2010.
