Giving Back to the Community and Recognizing Our Local Heroes

Scholarship Contest

As injury attorneys, we understand the importance of helping those within our community. We fight for justice on behalf of our clients every single day. But, outside of the legal world, we are also proactive in giving back to our community to help better the lives of our residents. 

Friedman Injury Law wants to hear from you and what it takes to better help your community. 

We want to hear about a time you gave back to your community, current charitable events happening in your community, stories about a local hero, or examples of how specific community work can help the community. 

We want to hear your creative side and for you to tell us the most compelling story!

Essay Overview: 

We want you to tell in 300 – 400 words about your community. This can include, but is not limited to: 

  • A time that you volunteered to give back to your community;  
  • Current charitable events happening in your community that you are involved with;
  • Stories about a local hero or charitable event that was beneficial to your community; or
  • Examples of how specific community work can help the community.

*We also encourage you to sign up for a community program and describe what you took away from that experience

Then, we will choose the most compelling essay and select one winner (1) and award them $1,000.00 to put towards their college tuition. 

We want to hear your creative side and look forward to your submission!
