The Mike Morse Law Firm Scholarship
At Mike Morse Law Firm, we recognize the important role that giving back to the community plays in education. Not only does community service empower youth but it also allows the community and the next generation to grow stronger together.
Our work with auto accident victims on a daily basis also highlights the importance of safe driving. Preventing distracted driving is a huge challenge we deal with on a daily basis and is something that’s very important to us.
