The attorneys at the Berkowitz Hanna Malpractice and Injury Lawyers understand the challenges faced by disability, whether it is personal or not. Disabilities go beyond a medical definition and cause daily challenges in the life of many. We are excited to offer a $1,000 scholarship to help a student overcome a disability.
At Berkowitz Hanna Malpractice and Injury Lawyers, we have experienced how a disability could affect the daily life of someone. We understand that defining disabilities goes beyond a medical definition. We believe strongly in giving back to our community and do not want to see students give up on their dreams because of disability.
