As a former prosecutor who is now a personal injury and criminal defense attorney, I have spent extensive time on both sides of a courtroom to understand how important having proper legal defense is to freedom. I have created a scholarship to promote the importance of liberty and justice through video essays that answer the question “why is it important for those charged with a serious crime to have proper legal defense?” The winner will receive a one-time $500 scholarship towards their education.


Current students or those who have been accepted to an accredited college, university, or trade school.
