What Compelled You to Become a Lawyer?

As serious injury attorneys, we are motivated every day to help our injured clients after what is often one of the most difficult moments in their lives.

We want to hear from current law students about their motivations in seeking a legal education.

We are proud to be awarded a scholarship to whoever writes the best essay on that topic. 


In your essay submission, we want to hear about:

  1. What compelled you to become a lawyer?
  2. Are there any meaningful reasons that you wanted to enter the legal field that you feel are unique?
  3. Are there any special areas of law that you would like to target? 
  4. What are the goals through your first years as an attorney that you would like to accomplish?
