2021 Value of Mentorship Scholarship - McDonald at Law

McDonald at Law and its attorneys strive to be an example for those in the community and are firm believers that mentoring matters. Time and time again, studies have shown that mentorship aids in retention in schools, increased graduation rates, and a greater sense of fulfillment for both parties in the relationship. Head attorney, Michael McDonald, has mentored and taught many young lawyers and has helped them both inside and outside the law firm. He has taught classes and held seminars on everything from automobile insurance law to winning your first civil trial. Attorney McDonald is very passionate about mentoring Pennsylvania’s youth and helping guide them towards future success.

That is why our law firm has decided to offer the Value of Mentorship Scholarship! For this scholarship, we want you to tell us about a time where you had to mentor someone.
