Giving Back – University of Akron
Richard West is the founder and lead bankruptcy attorney at the Richard West Law Office. As a law firm that helps families rebuild their financial lives, we routinely encounter clients who are burdened by student loan debt. He has devoted 100% of his practice and professional career to helping people – good, honest, hard-working people – solve their debt problems.
In the spirit of their mission, Richard West Law Office, is offering one fortunate candidate a scholarship to help support the costs of tuition and books. Each year, the Richard West Law Office will chose one qualified applicant to receive a $500 scholarship.
Mr. West hopes that these scholarships will reward the efforts of motivated members of the community by helping take some of the financial pressure of education off their shoulders as they work towards advancing their goals.
