Scholarship

The Rosenblum Law Firm is the largest and highest customer-rated traffic violations law firm in both New York and New Jersey. For the past 12 years we have been dedicated to providing statewide representation for traffic violations and related matters as well as educating the general public about how a traffic ticket can lead to points, high fines, license suspension or revocation, and even jail time. In addition to our websites which are regularly updated with relevant content and news, we also provide ebooks and email newsletters including email alerts during times of heightened traffic ticket enforcement.

In furtherance of our goals of public education and awareness, and to have a means to give back to the community, our firm has endowed a number of undergraduate and graduate scholarships. The scholarship being offered here is the Rosenblum Law Firm Traffic Ticket Law Scholarship.
