An old maxim is to “leave it better than you found it.”  As serious injury attorneys, we take pride in giving back to our community as much as possible. We can improve the community by helping people get justice for their serious injuries.

Our first philosophy is putting our clients’ best interests first.

We want to hear how you are putting others first and leaving your community a better place.

That is why we are proud to introduce our first annual scholarship contest for those currently enrolled in college. We want to find out how you give back to your community and what you took away from that experience.

Essay Overview:

In 250 – 500 words tell us about an experience where you were able to give back to the community. Here are some basic examples of what we are looking for in your submission:

  • A volunteer program you were a part of. Tell us what that program was and why you decided to help out.
  • Charity events that you participated in.  Tell us what was meaningful to you about participating.
  • A time that you saw an issue and took the initiative to fix or improve the situation.

Then, we will choose the most compelling essay and select one winner (1) and award them $1,500.00 to put towards their college tuition.
