We at D’Amico & Pettinicchi know that searching for and parsing out the truth can be a difficult task. For personal injury or other legal matters, discovering the truth is of paramount importance as it is the difference between justice being achieved or a responsible party walking away unaccountable. Similarly, truth in everyday life has been under siege.
In an effort to highlight the importance and reward honesty in both the legal realm and in personal experiences, we are proud to announce the inaugural D’Amico & Pettinicchi Truth Scholarship, a $2,500 scholarship available to all students trying to further their education through law school. In 750-1000 words, we would like to hear from you: How would you describe the importance of truth and honesty in the judicial system and the degree to which it is respected currently? In your experience, how does this compare to the role of truth in your own life and in society as a whole? Please read the eligibility criteria below and apply before the September 30th, 2024 deadline!
