The 2023 Safe Driving Scholarship

The deadline for applications has passed for the 2023 Safe Driving Scholarship. Any new entries will not be considered. Entries will be accepted again for 2024 starting in January.

Springs Law Group is passionate about making the roads a safer place to drive. In a world filled with electronic devices, texting and driving is a leading cause of car accidents. According to, “One of every four car accidents in the United States is caused by phone usage behind the wheel”, and “Drivers under 20 years old have the highest proportion of fatal accidents related to distracted driving.” That’s why we are offering the Safe Driving Scholarship to help raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving, especially when it involves young adults.

Our firm is happy to offer this $1,000 scholarship to students who want to share their ideas on the current texting and driving laws in their state and what could be improved to promote safety on the roads.

Scholarship Winners 2023

Winner #1

Logan Hart
Long Valley, NJ
Indiana University

My name is Logan Hart and I am from Long Valley New Jersey. I am currently enrolled in the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, with concentrations in information systems, business analytics, and economics. I am pursuing a career in actuarial science, and working in NYC for the summer as an actuarial intern for a health consulting company. This scholarship will be monumental in helping me minimize my student loans and pay for my exam fees and study material as I work to become a credentialed actuary. Additionally, it will help me focus more on my academics, extracurriculars and social skills as I actively work multiple jobs at school to fund my education.

Outside of my professional aspirations, some of my passions include backpacking, deep-sea fishing, and snowboarding. A fun fact is that I once trekked for 2 weeks and roughly 100 miles through the rocky mountains with my scouting troop! Through the Boy Scouts, I earned my Eagle Scout designation, which is one of my proudest achievements. Scouting instilled valuable skills such as leadership and service that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Winner #2

“I cannot thank him and his team enough for their support.”

Big thanks to Mr. Jake Kimbell and his team for their assistance with my case. He helped me through an incredibly challenging part of my life, and most importantly helped navigate through the convoluted legal channels of my case. I cannot thank him and his team enough for their support.

"If you are hesitant to retain an attorney, stop stressing it - call these guys!"

I never have a problem with getting a response when I need them – which is not the case with most other firms. They really truly care about each client. As a plus, they always have positive attitudes, which matters tremendously when you are in a stressful legal situation.
