The Friends are extremely excited to have local triathlete, Frederik Stig-Nielsen representing us and raising funds as he competes in this year’s IRONMAN 70.3 Michigan event. As you’ll learn in the following entertaining interview, Fred is quite well-known in the community. Not just for providing criminal defense services as part of his law practice in Frankfort with his wife, Betsy, but also for his popularity at open mic nights at the Cabbage Shed where he and Betsy have lived since 2014.
