At Nadia von Magdenko & Associates, we are dedicated to providing trustworthy and effective legal counsel to individuals who have been injured due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party. We know that immediate counsel can be invaluable for those who wish to file a lawsuit for their injuries — but we also know that long-lasting support can be just as invaluable for accident victims.

For this reason, we’re proud to announce our 2017 Personal Injury Scholarship, worth $500, to one outstanding student who has been the victim of an accident. Rather than asking applicants to submit a traditional written essay, we’re asking that applicants submit a short video telling us about their experiences overcoming their injuries.
