The Silverman, McDonald & Friedman Educational Scholarship

At Silverman, McDonald & Friedman, we are dedicated to representing the injured. When a man, woman or child is hurt because of the negligence of another person, in a car accident, or when a worker is injured in the course of his or her duties, we commit to holding the responsible parties accountable for their actions.

We know that the best chance our clients have for a more secure future is the civil justice system. To that end, we are committed to keeping that system strong. That starts with finding passionate, driven individuals who will advocate for their clients, and who will seek justice on their behalves.

That is why we are proud to announce the annual Silverman, McDonald & Friedman Educational Scholarship. This yearly scholarship will be awarded to a law student who is dedicated to upholding the rights of the injured. The successful candidate will be enrolled, or have proof of future enrollment, in an accredited college, university or law school for the upcoming academic year. The scholarship can be paid directly to the student’s institution, at his or her request.

Scholarship amount: up to $5000
