The Barone Defense Firm Win Back Your Life Scholarship

Here at the Barone Defense Firm, many of our clients are hurting and at a low point in their lives. They feel as if they have been knocked down and they do not know if their lives will ever be the same. Every day, we get a close-up look at their struggles and are often impressed with their inner strength and personal perseverance to carry on and face their futures with heads held high. While the easy thing would be to give in to despair, they refuse to do so. We strive to join with and support their efforts to put their lives back in order, and always do our best to help provide them the second chance they deserve. That is why the partners at the firm, who have a long history of promoting education, decided that they wanted to provide a scholarship to a student who has persevered and grown by overcoming some form of adversity; someone who did not falter in the wake of personal difficulty. In the spirit of giving deserving people additional opportunities, we are proud to announce the inaugural Barone Defense Firm Win Back Your Life Scholarship.
