The Reeves Law Group Scholarship

The Reeves Law Group is awarding a $2,500 scholarship to a deserving student and future lawyer who authors a winning essay in our third annual Scholarship Essay Contest.

Our law firm specializes in representing victims of accidents and other tragic circumstances. As lawyers, we feel fortunate to be advocates in the justice system for those who have no voice of their own. Helping people in need by providing them with our resources and expertise in the legal system is one of our greatest rewards.

America has a superb justice system, but it could use more exceptional individuals with a passion for improving our society through the legal system. For our third annual scholarship contest, we are pleased to support a future lawyer who has a dream to make a significant contribution to society through the legal field. Such a contribution may be to help an institution, a specific group, or the public at large.
