The Shorstein, Lasnetski, & Gihon Scholarship

Shorstein, Lasnetski, & Gihon is pleased to announce the Shorstein, Lasnetski, & Gihon Scholarship Awards.  We will be providing applicants with the opportunity to earn one of three $1000 scholarship awards to further their academic career.  

We represent clients in three areas of law that often come with negative perceptions by members of the general public - criminal defense, immigration, and personal injury.  We are looking for applicants to thoughtfully, articulately, creatively and constructively demonstrate the positive impact attorneys can have on people's lives through criminal defense, immigration representation, and personal injury representation.

Why do we need criminal attorneys, immigration attorneys, and personal injury attorneys?  

Have fun.  Be creative.  Use your own personal experiences or create a story of your own.  It's up to you.  Just make it educational and entertaining.
