Attorney Daniel Benji has worked with many individuals who have experienced injuries and losses. It takes dedication and patience to overcome hardships and our firm is proud to support people through the recovery process.
This year we are excited to announce our One Step at a Time Scholarship. This scholarship was created to encourage those who have faced adversity to reflect on their experience and discuss the steps they took to pull themselves through a difficult situation. We are looking for students to explore their past adversities and delve into how they have grown through what they have gone through. Is there anything you wish you knew then? What did you learn from the experience? How has overcoming a hardship impacted you and has it changed your outlook on life?
