NHS Mock Trial Team Comes Out on Top

February 12, 2020

McGahren Law is proud to be an official sponsor of the Norcross High School Mock Trial team coached by our of counsel attorney, Richard Harris, attorney Matthew McGahren and Norcross High School teacher Hal Wright. Most recently, in the Peachtree Corners Magazine the team’s success was made known to the community:

“The Norcross High School Mock Trial Team was undefeat­ed, 3-0, at the Gwinnett region tournament, held the first week­end of February 2020 in court­rooms at the Gwinnett Justice & Administration Center in Law­renceville, GA. “I am very proud, along with fellow local attorney Matt McGahren and NHS Social Studies teacher Hal Wright, to coach this terrific group of young people,” said Richard Harris, PC. This was the second consecu­tive year the NHS team finished undefeated in the region.”

“Juniors Khadijah Akbar and Martin Lachev both earned outstanding attorney awards. Sophomores Aidan Moss and Zach Susskind earned outstand­ing witness awards, with Zach winning twice. Junior Moira Christ received well-deserved high scores for her blistering cross-examination. Juniors Teagan Crye and Ainsley Clayton were believable, vibrant witnesses, and freshman Elyse Loew was flawless in the crucial timekeeping role.”

The NHS Mock Trial team will be competing again on February 22 at the district level where the top two teams will advance to the state final.
