Tuttle Law, P.A. Scholarship

Personal Injury Legal Studies Scholarship

To support the education of those interested in dedicating themselves to passionate advocacy on behalf of injury victims, Tuttle Law, P.A. proudly announces its sponsorship of a new scholarship opportunity. The Tuttle Law, P.A. Personal Injury Legal Studies Scholarship application process is now open to those interested in pursuing the study of personal injury law. 

The celebrated poet Robert Frost once surmised that “A jury consists of twelve persons chosen to decide who has the better lawyer.” Unfortunately, in the context of personal injury law, this observation is not wholly without merit. Especially when personal injury victims are trying to hold powerful entities accountable for wrongdoing, the skill, experience, and dedication of the lawyers involved can make or break the outcome of an individual’s justified claim. As a result, it is critically important that those who have been injured as a result of another’s negligence, recklessness, or intentionally harmful behavior are provided with knowledgeable, focused, and determined legal counsel. Our firm is honored to support the legal studies ambitions of those students eager to provide the high-quality legal advocacy that personal injury victims deserve. 

Tuttle Law, P.A. will be awarding a $1,000 scholarship to a Junior/Senior in high school, and to a student pursuing college or an advanced degree of any type. Those awarded these scholarships must meet the eligibility and selection criteria outlined below.
