$1,000 In Scholarship Prizes To Be Awarded In Essay Contest About Choosing a Trustworthy Law Firm

Attention college and law school students in Indiana!

Vaughan & Vaughan will award $1,000 in scholarship prizes as part of an essay contest sponsored by our law firm. Our Indiana firm created this essay contest because we strongly believe in financially supporting the educational needs of students and promoting community involvement.

The topic of the essay contest concerns what you should do if you’re hurt in an accident. Getting the right legal representation is important for injured people, and that means choosing the right law firm. The essay topic is:

“From your perspective, what makes a car or truck accident law firm trustworthy and respectable?”

Scholarship Prizes

Our law firm will award three scholarship prizes worth a total of $1,000 for general education-related expenses:

  • First prize: $500
