The Arizona Association of Defense Counsel’s Young Lawyers Division (AADC YLD) hosted its annual charity softball tournament on Saturday, February 15, 2020 at Tempe Sports Complex. Four law firms sponsored teams and participated in the tournament: Quarles & Brady; Jennings, Strauss & Salmon; Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law; and Jones, Skelton & Hochuli. JSH associate Nic Martino captained the firm’s team which included friends and JSH attorneys Brian Cuevas, John Gregory, Erik Stone, and Evann Waschuk . Nic is a member of the YLD’s Board of Directors and is serving his term as Community Outreach Chair. Through team entry fees, sponsorships, and raffle ticket sales, the tournament raised nearly $9,000 for Southwest Human Development, which supports early childhood development in Arizona through various local programs. The money raised directly supports these programs and the families they serve.
