David Bate Law: Protector of Rights Scholarship
David Bate is a lawyer who believes in protecting people. In his practice, he protects innocent people involved in criminal charges, and victims of personal injury and medical malpractice. He has witnessed people’s rights being abused and misappropriated throughout his career. This has made him want to fight harder and to also support others who are trying to defend the rights of everyday people who are going through difficult times.
Mr. Bate’s and his team know that in addition to the legal services they offer to help protect their client’s rights, there are many different professions in many different industries that also help to protect people’s rights. A society that is full of individuals who are able and want to commit their lives to upholding the rights of people who need to be protected, is one that Mr. Bate’s feels good about investing in.
The David Bate Law Office is proud to announce its Protector of Rights Scholarship for an exemplary student who is pursuing a degree in an industry through which they can fight to uphold the rights of innocent people and victims.
