Why Does Parnall Law Firm Offer This Annual Scholarship?

Parnall Law Firm is invested in the local Albuquerque community. Our founding attorney, Bert Parnall, is a proud Albuquerque Bulldog. He wants to help other students reach their educational goals and give back to the local community. Providing the scholarship is part of our never-ending mission to make Albuquerque an even greater place to live and work, along with our collaborations with M.A.D.D. and other community service work we complete.

The scholarship also provides an opportunity to bring attention to the dangers of distracted driving. Approximately one of every four car accidents today involves texting and driving. Tragically, deaths and injuries caused by texting and driving continue to increase every year. Studies show that texting and driving is six times more likely to cause a crash than drunk driving. Distracted driving is the leading cause of death for teens.

Parnall Law Firm often works with victims of distracted driving accidents and their families. We hope that bringing awareness to this critical topic will prevent deaths and injuries to our beloved neighbors.
