At Wells Call Injury Lawyers, we often represent the victims of alcohol and drug-related crashes. It is so hard to see how a senseless choice can destroy the lives of innocent people. Although driving while under the influence continues to be a huge problem for our society, we believe that today’s youth will be the ones who will help to make this problem go away. That’s why we want to give back to our community and give local high school students the chance to compete for some large scholarships.
