On May 7, Davis Malm attorneys Michael D. Weisman, Daniel T. Janis and Kendra Kinscherf participated as jurors at the Evening of Mock Trials at the Moakley U.S. Courthouse. Discovering Justice and Citizen Schools' Evening of Mock Trials occurs each May and December after a ten-week Legal Apprenticeship Program, in which students from Boston public middle schools work with local attorneys to prepare cases for mock trial. Attorney mentors, family, and supporters gather to watch the student "attorneys" litigate cases before real judges and juries.

Michael Weisman has been a trial lawyer for over 30 years and is uniquely qualified to critique and advise the participants as he has tried to verdict a wide variety of matters, ranging from complex product liability, medical malpractice, and civil rights cases to sophisticated trust, corporate, and commercial disputes. His storied career has earned him a national reputation as a formidable trial lawyer.

Kendra Kinscherf practices in the Litigation, Real Estate, and Employment areas and focuses on commercial, land use, real estate, environmental, and employment litigation. She also has experience in health, discrimination, employment, and corporate law. Prior to law school, Kendra worked for several nonprofit and environmental organizations assisting in real estate transactions, title reviews, and drafting proposed legislation.

Daniel Janis practices in the Business Law area. His practice includes representation of public and private companies in a range of financings, transactions and general corporate matters including mergers and acquisitions, syndicated commercial credit facilities, private equity placements, venture capital financings and joint ventures in a variety of industries.
