Adrian Altshuler’s Annual Just Need a Chance Educational Scholarship

Whether you are practicing family law, criminal defense, personal injury, or any other area of law, you will frequently hear your clients tell you that they, “Just need a chance.”

  • A chance to learn from their mistakes
  • A chance to recover from an injury
  • A chance to move on from a bad marriage
  • A chance to create a business

As attorneys, we often are able to help give people the chance they need to take the next step in life. That is why I have created the “Just Need a Chance” Educational Scholarship. I would like to take that same concept and give one lucky student who believes they have a future in law, a chance at furthering their education. The details, requirements and form to apply can be found below.
