After serving for two years as a Judge for the the New York State Bar Association's High School Mock Trial Program, then four years as the Attorney-Advisor for the Batavia High School team, followed by eight years as the local Coordinator, Genesee County District Attorney, Lawrence Friedman has decided that his this year will be his last year of involvement with the Mock Trial Program.   "I have enjoyed each of these roles, but feel that it is time for someone else to take over as Coordinator," Friedman said.  When asked about his replacement, Friedman responded "I am very pleased to report that Kristie L. DeFreze, Esq. of the Law Firm of Bonarigo and McCutcheon has enthusiastically agreed to become the new Mock Trial Program Coordinator for Genesee County. I am sure that, like me, you all appreciate Kristie's willingness to take on this very important responsibility. I am confident that she will do an excellent job as the Coordinator of this great Program!"

Friedman will finish out this season and then, after the Regional Tournament is completed in late April or early May, all future communications regarding the Mock Trial Program should be directed to Defreze. Friedman intends to work with Defreze to make sure that there will be a smooth transition of responsibilities and will remain available for any questions or advice as they arise.

DeFreze will attend the Annual Law Day/Awards Dinner at Terry Hills Restaurant to be held on Thursday, May 1, 2014 and will be introduced as the new Mock Trial Program Coordinator for Genesee County.
