Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt
Workers’ Justice Scholarship 2023
Everyone deserves the right to work in a safe place, and they deserve to be protected if their workplace fails them. At the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, we are passionate about representing workers to ensure they are treated fairly — and that their place of work is a safe space. Our attorneys care so much about our clients that we work on a contingency-only basis, which means that we do not get paid unless we win the case. Our attorneys have a background on both sides of the law — some of us started out working on behalf of insurance companies, fighting worker’s claims. However, it did not take long to realize that these cases went against our core values of honesty, integrity, and empathy. After all, most insurance companies just want to protect their bottom line. That is why we created our law offices to fight for worker’s rights and to get them the compensation they deserve if they are injured.
Furthermore, we want to encourage young people to think the same way: think about the worker’s and their lives and families. Workers’ comp cases are about more than just a paycheck at the end of the day — they are about providing for one’s family and long-term life goals. Thus, we have created a scholarship fund in which we will give a scholarship to a deserving student who also wants to ensure that employees are fairly compensated and provided with safe spaces to work. If you are a student who wants to advocate for worker’s rights, then this scholarship is for you: the Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt Workers’ Justice Scholarship 2023.
