Law Offices of Jeffrey Lichtman Community Service Scholarship

Congratulations to Ella Stiso, our 2023 scholarship winner! Learn more about our previous recipients here!

For nearly three decades, defense attorney Jeffrey Lichtman has worked tirelessly to provide quality legal services to those in his community and beyond. Throughout his time working in the criminal justice system, it has become increasingly clear that there are many ills that our society faces, ranging anywhere from economic hardship to substance abuse epidemics. Yet within each community, there exists a group of individuals who go above and beyond in their efforts to combat such ills and eradicate them through initiatives that ignite progress and hope for a better tomorrow.

In an effort to recognize these individuals, we are offering the Law Offices of Jeffrey Lichtman Community Service Scholarship. The purpose of this scholarship is to honor a student who has made a significant effort to better their community in some specific way, meaning they saw a problem, and took the initiative to try to mend it. The Law Offices of Jeffrey Lichtman is proud to work with community members passionate about laying the groundwork for a brighter future. We look forward to awarding a deserving student for their meaningful work.
