The personal injury attorneys of Hach & Rose, LLP have built a reputation as the go-to law firm for injured individuals in New York City. Our commitment to those who have been injured as a result of a catastrophic injury is unwavering, and we are proud of the verdicts and settlements we have won on behalf of our clients.
The entire team at Hach & Rose, LLP strongly believe in giving back to our community in any way we can. That's why we created the $5,000 Hach & Rose, LLP Annual College Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded in the name of our clients, whose strength through adversity after suffering a serious injury is an inspiration to us every single day. Hach & Rose, LLP is proud to designate Kevin Vandermark as 2020's honoree. Because the cost of education is rising every year, we created this scholarship to assist graduating high school students, or current college students, with the costs of attending college or graduate school. We hope that this scholarship can ease some of the burdens that deserving students face while supporting themselves and shouldering a heavy workload in school.
