Law Offices of Jason Turchin Scholarship

Win $500 for Books - Accident Victims

The Law Offices of Jason Turchin is proud of those who achieve success through adversity. We fight tirelessly to help victims of negligence and their families.


Accidents often create a sudden, unexpected burden on not only the victim, but on their family. Accidents can also create physical, emotional and financial strains on the victim and family.


Caregivers and accident victims play an important role in helping to recover from a sudden accident. Whether it is building strength through physical therapy to heal injuries, or finding strength to move forward after a fatal accident, these victims deserve support from those of us who recognize that they did not ask to be in that difficult situation, yet found the strength to move forward.


This is why we extend a special scholarship to those who were injured in an accident, whose immediate family member was injured, or those who lost an immediate family member in an accident.
