Simon Law Firm September 2018


september 2018


At Simon Law Firm, we do everything we can to give back to the wonderful community of people who have made our firm possible for more than ten years. We know that, without those we serve placing their trust in us in the midst of crisis, we simply could not exist. So, it’s important to us that we invest in initiatives that we believe truly make a difference. And what better way for a law firm to do that than by giving a boost to the next generation of talented attorneys? That’s why we created the Christopher Simon Attorney-at-Law Scholarship, a $1,000 scholarship awarded to one young law student to put a small dent in the considerable expenses that come with law school. This year, we put out a challenging essay prompt dealing with the same kind of personal injury cases we cover here at the firm, and we received applications from promising young law students all over the state, each hoping to make a positive impact in the world. We’d like to give a sincere thank-you to everyone who applied. It was heartening to read all the applications that came in. Clearly, there are dozens of up-and-coming future lawyers eager to equip themselves with the skills to be the best attorneys they can be. But, as challenging as it was, in the end we had to choose a single recipient for the scholarship. So, without further ado, congratulations to Chicary Smith, winner of the 2018 Christopher Simon scholarship award!


Chicary is an Atlanta resident and a recent graduate from Kennesaw State. She submitted a thorough analysis of our insurance problem, offering the kind of fresh perspective that will serve her clients well in the future. We’re thrilled to be able offer her a small token of encouragement as she starts her first year at the Syracuse University law program this month! Congratulations also to the winner of the $250 runner-up scholarship, Julie Schwarzwald of Tulane Law School. It was a tough decision picking the winners of the scholarship, but rest assured, we have the utmost confidence that both of them are going to succeed with flying colors in their future careers as attorneys.

It may be small in the grand scheme of things, but it means a lot to be able to contribute even a small amount toward someone’s future. We trust that these students will be conscientious stewards of the law and will work to serve their clients with the highest standards of ethics, attention, and skill. We look forward to seeing all that Chicary and Julie accomplish in the years to come!
