Attorney Jay Cohen, the founder of Blass Law, has a profound understanding of the devastation that a DWI conviction can have on one’s life and future. Unfortunately, teens sometimes fail to recognize the repercussions if they are charged with, and convicted of, driving while intoxicated.
“Driving while under the influence of alcohol and drugs wreaks havoc on people’s lives,” said Cohen. “Not only could it cause a serious accident, but young people who are convicted of DWI are beginning their lives with a black mark on their record before they even become adults.”
Blass Law created this scholarship to encourage teens to think about ways to create a safer driving environment for everyone in their community.
