About the Safe Roads Policy Scholarship
We have been serving our community for over 25 years, working to protect the rights of victims following an accident. Inspiring people to consider alternate ways to improve public roadways is paramount to promoting the safety of others.
“As a law firm specializing in personal injuries, we see the many issues pertaining to the safety of our roadways. We are starting this scholarship as a way to get young people’s ideas on how to improve the safety of our roads,” said attorney David Bressman, a partner of the firm.
By offering this scholarship, we hope not only to promote education but also encourage safe driving practices for those who get behind the wheel.
“Road safety is a major concern, and we would love to hear more about ideas that the younger generation may have about improving our roadways, which is why we decided to offer this scholarship,” said Thomas F. Martello, Jr., an attorney at Bressman Law.
Our goal is to give back to our community and the surrounding areas. We feel that awarding this scholarship to a student who shows a well-thought-out and researched plan for road improvement is a great place to start. By offering this scholarship, we hope to provide great suggestions to our lawmakers about things that can be done to improve the overall safety of our roadways.
