Amy G Law Firm 2019 Access to Education Scholarship
The attorneys of the Amy G Law Firm believe in the notion that everyone is entitled to an equal opportunity when it comes to overcoming adversity and creating a better future for themselves, their families, and society as a whole. Knowing that many individuals face circumstances that put them at a real disadvantage in terms of meeting the above goals, the firm works each and every day to advocate on behalf of those who might otherwise never have a voice or an aggressive champion of their rights. Consistent with this philosophy, the Amy G Law Firm has proudly established the Access to Education Scholarship.
