Chukwuma Law Group Annual Adversity Scholarship
Chukwuma Law Group will award a $2,500 scholarship for school supplies to a university/college student who has undergone adversity, and despite all odds overcame, it.
Growing up with a criminal defense attorney for a mother, Jeff Caesar Chukwuma, founder of Chukwuma Law Group, witnessed the importance of advocacy for those who faced adversity in life and often did not have a voice.
