Freidin Brown, P.A. Donates to St. John Children’s Center & St. Jude’s
In October 2012, Freidin Brown, P.A. donated new uniforms to kids at the St. John Children’s Center in Overtown. Lawyer Philip Freidin was accompanied by Maria Elena Delange and visited the school to meet the children who received the new uniforms. Earlier in the month, Mr. Freidin was also presented with a plaque by Bishop Adams for his commitment to the center and the surrounding community. A current project is in the works, backed by our law firm, to add a new playground to the center as well.
For more than a decade, Freidin Brown, P.A. has also helped raise money for St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital.

It is widely-regarded as the most-trusted charity in America and the nation’s top children’s cancer research center.

Freidin Brown, P.A. Runs Mock Trials for Alexander Mentessori Elementary School
We arranged for the third graders of the Alexander Montessori School to put on a trial and learn about the criminal justice system during a field trip to the courthouse. The children performed the trial of State. v. Gold E. Locks, a fun twist on the classic Goldilocks tale. They also were able to speak with and ask questions of the Honorable Peter Lopez, and later observed a jury being selected in front of the Honorable William Thomas. Judge Thomas did an excellent job of explaining the presumption of innocence and the rights afforded to individuals who are accused of a crime. Overall, this was a fantastic day for the bright minds of tomorrow’s legal professionals.
