Kamper Estrada Helping Families Scholarship, 2018
Kamper Estrada, LLP is among the highest rated law firms and is nationally recognized for providing clients with the highest level of skill and integrity. We specialize in personal injury, bankruptcy, and estate planning. What sets us apart from other top law firms is our personal approach. We take time to get to know our clients. We want to know their greatest concerns, their long and short term goals, and the dreams they have for their children and their lasting legacy.
We believe the basic idea: family is your most important asset. This is why we have created a different type of law firm that treats clients like family. We strive to foster uniquely personal service and a family feel that we feel our clients deserve. Our goal is to provide personal attention and superior legal service at a reasonable cost to our clients.
Even the happiest and most loving and functional families struggle. When someone steps in to help a family in trouble this can be a pivot point where the family starts to get back on their feet. Families often struggle because of financial, health, emotional and/or spiritual problems, to name a few. We want to help a young person who is committed to helping others. We know that education can become a turning point for a person to gain knowledge and access to systems that they did not use to have. We have come up with the Kamper Estrada Helping Families Scholarship, 2017 to help a student who is committed to helping others. We know that investing in education today will help to make the world a better place tomorrow.
