The Cost of DWI Scholarship

August 2017 Update – Please Read

From the webmaster: Dear Students and Potential Scholarship Applicants: This website is currently under new administration. The previous law firm displayed on this website instituted a Scholarship in early 2017. Currently the new law firm associated with this site is not accepting applications for any scholarship.

Please check back to this page periodically as we are in a transition of on-boarding a new law firm to this site and they may begin accepting scholarship applications soon.

For informational purposes, we have left the text of the old scholarship below.

Please do not submit any scholarship applications at this time. Further investigation by potential applicants wishing to pursue a career as a criminal lawyer may lead you to find this Houston DWI Lawyer who has also posted a criminal lawyer scholarship, but we believe it is only open to Texas applicants.

We are pleased to announce the “Cost of DWI Scholarship.”
