Make a Difference Scholarship

Mitch Grissim & Associates is dedicated not only to protecting the legal interests of Nashville residents, but also to finding ways to make our community a better place to live.

With this in mind, we’re excited to announce our Make a Difference Scholarship, which will offer two students a $1,000 scholarship each to be applied towards their tuition or other education-related expenses.

For over 35 years, the team at Mitch Grissim & Associates has been representing individuals who have suffered serious injuries or lost loved ones in accidents due to the negligence of someone else.

When people call our office, it’s usually one of the worst days of their lives. Many times, they’re battling debilitating injuries that have led to high medical expenses and property damage, impacting their ability to work and support their families financially and emotionally. Even worse, sometimes our clients are dealing with the death of a loved one.

It’s OUR job to make a difference in these people’s lives by obtaining justice for what they were forced to endure. But we don’t want to stop there. Through our commitment to helping these victims, we are inspired to continue pursuing opportunities that allow us to give back to the people of our community.

At Mitch Grissim & Associates, we love our town, our state, and the people who make it home. It’s our mission to help others go out and do good in the world. As a law firm, providing a scholarship opportunity for students is one way we can pay it forward and work towards something bigger than ourselves. After all, young people are the future, and the future will only be bright if we invest in their growth and encourage them to make a difference.
