Meet Our Staff  

Amar Patel

Communications & IT Associate
Pittsburgh, PA

As a two-time Empire participant, Amar knows first hand the benefits of an Empire Mock Trial event. Amar joined the Empire staff soon after high school. Since 2008, he has helped offer students the same unforgettable experience that he once had. From organizing the database of judges, to reaching out to former Empire alumni, there is no task too big or small for Amar.

Amar graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in December of 2013, earning a B.S. in Information Science.  His orderly, systems-based mode of thinking is the perfect complement to Justin’s visionary outlook. Like many at Empire, Amar is an alumnus of the Tottenville High School mock trial program.  During his sophomore year, his team won the New York City Championship and finished second in the state.  In 2009, he returned with his fellow Pirates to win both the New York City and State Championships.  A master of Indian accents and self-deprecating humor, Amar continued his mock trial success in college, earning an All-Regional Witness award in 2010.
