The Cooper Hurley Distracted Driving Awareness Scholarship
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers set up its scholarship program in 2017. The firm will award three scholarships of $2,000 to 2018 graduating seniors in schools in the Tidewater and Eastern Shore area.
For years, the personal injury lawyers have been supporting good causes in our community and taking on young people as interns. Now we are happy to be able to help them during their studies.
