The social security and disability lawyers at Khattar Law have recently announced they will be holding a semi-annual essay contest with a $1000 scholarship as the grand prize.
The contest will be open to anyone who will be enrolled in a U.S. accredited college or university the semester in which the amount will be dispersed. The contest will take place twice a year, in the spring and the fall.
