Auto Accident Survivor & Friends Scholarship

FREE Case evaluation

Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

auto accident lawyer in DCCohen & Cohen, has been protecting the rights of auto accident victims and their families  for over 25 years. Our dedication, skill, tenacity, and compassion, for the people we serve and for what we do, has made us one of the top personal injury law firms in Washington, DC. We have seen auto accidents devastate families in many different ways. From losing a loved one to losing abilities, to mounting financial debt and more, an auto-accident can change peoples lives for the worse in just moments.

Throughout our time serving them, Cohen & Cohen’s admiration for auto-accident survivors, and for the friends and family that take care of them, has continued to grow. To this end, our law firm has created the Cohen & Cohen Auto Accident Survivor & Friends Scholarship, for a student who has been a victim of an auto accident and did not let this stop them from pursuing their academic dreams; or for a friend or family member who stood by an auto accident victim in their time of need and was inspired to pursue their own academic goals.

We know that no amount of money can really make up for the many losses auto accidents cause but we hope that by funding an inspiring survivor’s education, or that of a friend or family member’s, we will make the financial part of their education just a little bit easier. Life is full of difficulties and challenges to overcome but we hope that with our help, the recipient’s educational financial hardship will not be one of them, or at least will be lessened.

Even though auto accidents often take away precious things, we know that survivor’s often get a new aspect and appreciation for life. We believe that by funding a survivor or someone who has stood by one, we will be funding someone who plans to try to make the most out of their lives in ways they might not have known about were it not for their experience with an auto-accident.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
