Kamper Estrada is a family oriented, multi-generational law firm with roots solidly planted in Arizona. Our families have been helping people in Arizona for many generations. While the practice and specialty areas of our lawyers differ as do the rolls of our support staff, we all come to work wanting to help people in need- and feel lucky to have careers that allow us to feel like we are accomplishing this on a daily basis. As a family oriented team, whether we are working on a personal injury case, bankruptcy, or estate planning, we do this knowing the importance of family and are mindful of how our actions will help to keep the family units of our clients tight and safe.
Because of this we have created the Kamper Estrada Help Your Home State Scholarship to support the education of a student who is also dedicated to helping people in the state that s/he grew up in (or the state that s/he feels most closely tied to). We feel honored to be able to do the kind of work we do in a place that our parents and grandparents worked before us. We know that by investing in a student who has a strong sense of family and the desire to make the place they call “home” a better place, we are investing in a better future.
