Butler Law Firm People Helping People Scholarship, 2019

The dedicated team at Butler Law Firm feels fortunate to be able to spend our workdays helping people. We work hard to provide top-notch legal representation to people who have been seriously injured, and to families who have tragically lost a loved one because of someone else’s negligence, malice or reckless behavior. We choose to take a small number of cases to ensure that we can focus on giving truly personalized help to our clients.

We take pride in the work we do and place high value on being able to provide people with the kind of help we do. We also know that many people who need help need more than one kind of help and we value others who try to help people in ways that are different than what we can provide.

To this end, we have created the Butler Law Firm’s, People Helping People Scholarship, 2019, for a student who is committed to helping people in need. We feel like the world is a better place every time someone commits to trying to help people who are in need. We believe that by helping to fund the education of a student who is committed to helping people in need, we will be helping to make our world a better place.
