Helping Victims Scholarship 

In the world of law, a victim of a personal injury is someone who has suffered from an injury that was caused by another person or entity’s negligence, recklessness or malice. In the United States, a victim of a personal injury may become injured and/or ill, physically and/or psychologically. The dedicated team at the Mishkind Kulwicki Law Co takes pride in being able to help victims of personal injuries and their families to get restitution in the form of monetary compensation from the person or people who wronged them.  

We feel fortunate to be able to do the work we do and take pride in being able to shoulder our clients’ legal burdens so that they can put their energy into trying to heal and to get back to the way their lives were before they suffered an unnecessary injury or loss. We also know that there are many disciplines besides law that give help to victims of many different kinds of situations. We are thankful that victims in need have resources such as the ones we provide, as well as ones from other disciplines that assist them with other, much-needed forms of help. 

Because of this we have created the Mishkind Kulwicki Law Co’s, 2020/2021 Helping Victims Scholarship for a student from any discipline, who is committed to helping people who are victims because of another’s negligence, or senseless, reckless or malicious actions. We think that the more people who are out in the world doing the work of good to help victims who need it, makes the world a better and more compassionate place, and we want to support the education of a goal-oriented student who has a passion for helping others.
