Brandy Austin Law Scholarship 2017
The trustworthy and caring team at Brandy Austin Law is committed to helping those who cannot help themselves by promoting equity, justice and opportunities for all.
We demonstrate this commitment by providing remarkable representation and personalized, cost-effective legal services to each of our clients. We know that everyone has their own, deeply personal story and we think everyone’s story should be heard- especially those stories made in the face of injustice.
Unfortunately, many voices are not heard because people do not have access to the resources and knowledge it takes to be heard by mainstream society and by those who have the power to make changes. Through our professional and volunteer work, the team at Brandy Austin is working to help unheard and marginalized voices be heard.
Without education and dedication, change is hard to implement. By investing in the education of our youth today we know we are helping to provide a stepping stone for future leaders to take a step towards making our future society, a safer and healthier place for ALL its inhabitants.
We offer our scholarship in the hopes of promoting a bright student’s education that will lead them to a life that is committed to promoting social justice for all.
