ZKS Attorney Jamie M. Blucher ('08) Organizes Mock-Trial
ORLANDO, FL -- Attorney Jamie M. Blucher of Zimmerman Kiser Sutcliffe (ZKS) law firm recently organized a mock-trial for students at Carver Middle School, as part of the Orange County Public School system's annual Teach-In Day held November 20.
Blucher assembled a group of attorneys to work with the students to present the mock trial of B.B. Wolf vs. Curly Pig. The legal professionals volunteering their time included: Alvin Benton, Holland & Knight; Wilbert Vancol, McEwan, Martinez & Dukes, P.A.; Jennifer Morando, The Rosenthal Law Firm; Leigh Ann Miller, Brownstone, P.A.; and Amy Jellicorse also of Zimmerman, Kiser Sutcliffe, P.A.
The students acted as jurors for the case, listening intently as both B.B. Wolf and Curly Pig presented evidence through their counsel. The students then retired to their “deliberation room” where they discussed the case and their respective positions on a verdict. The students had thoughtful insight on which party should prevail based upon the evidence presented. The students elected a jury foreman who presented the students’ verdict in the case. After the verdict was announced, the attorneys answered questions from the students about the practice of law.
Blucher, a recent recipient of a Young Lawyer Pro Bono Award of Excellence from the Young Lawyers Section (YLS) of the Orange County Bar Association, is an active community volunteer with a passion for helping children. As a member of the Legal Aid Society, she provides pro bono representation to abused and neglected children and has currently logged more than 200 volunteer hours representing vulnerable youth. Blucher was the valedictorian of her Barry University School of Law class, and she practices in the area of bankruptcy and commercial litigation.
