Announcing the Sieben Edmunds Miller Criminal Justice Scholarship

by Jan 5, 2021Criminal Defense Attorney, Firm News

2020 was a challenging year, but the attorneys at Sieben Edmunds Miller were touched to see so much generosity and compassion in our communities during this difficult time. In the spirit of giving back, Sieben Edmunds Miller PLLC is proud to announce the formation and launch of our new Criminal Justice Scholarship for students interested in pursuing a career as a criminal defense attorney. Our team continues to look for ways to support and uplift the next generation of criminal defense lawyers.

Welcoming the Next Generation of Criminal Defense Attorneys

Attorneys Kevin Sieben and Sam Edmunds first met while attending law school. At the time, they couldn’t have imagined the connection they made there would lead to their partnership at Sieben Edmunds Miller PLLC years down the road. Clearly, higher education is about more than just obtaining a degree. It’s about the relationships you form and the lessons you learn both in and out of the classroom.

We don’t want a lack of funds to be an impediment to any student eager to learn these valuable lessons. We know criminal defense students will go on to support individuals who would otherwise be unable to successfully navigate their criminal case. This is a vital role in our legal system, so we’re happy to encourage students to pursue a career as a criminal defense lawyer with our financial contribution.
