Congratulations to our 2020 scholarship winner, Kennedi!

Kennedi was selected by our scholarship committee as the 2020 winner of the award due to her perseverance, dedication to her education, and continued positivity.
As accident lawyers, we help clients who have suffered severe injuries in car crashes. In fact, Arizona had 129,750 car accidents just last year. As car accident lawyers, we have helped clients who suffered severe injuries. We have consoled clients who have lost family members to a careless driver. We have also seen car accident survivors who inspire us with their bravery and determination.

Suggestion to Help Your Essay
Your essay should focus on how a car accident affected your life, not the parties to blame or a detailed account of the collision. Our scholarship committee is looking for an applicant who best describes an enduring and positive attitude despite this misfortune.
Some of the points that you could include in your essay are:
- How you coped with your physical and emotional injuries
- What you did to help your family or friends who were also involved in the car accident
- What important life lesson(s) you gained from this experience
- We’d love to get to know you! In addition to your essay, send us a short video (under 3 minutes) introducing yourself with a brief overview of your essay.
