Fair Fee Legal Services Bank Scholarship

Fair Fee Legal Services Bank Scholarship

The Fair Fee Legal Services Bank Scholarship values the importance of education and the challenges some students face affording it. We believe that every student with the desire and drive to attend college should have that opportunity, regardless of financial status.

As the #1 bankruptcy filer in Nevada, Fair Fee Legal Services is committed to:

  • Providing students with assistance in securing a higher education 
  • Taking some of the financial burdens off dedicated, hard-working students

All students should have the opportunity to attend college and achieve their goals. Fair Fee Legal Services is awarding a $1,000 scholarship to cover education expenses for the 2020-2021 school year. The scholarship is available for Nevada high school students who plan on enrolling in a community college or university.

We are offering a scholarship for college and college-bound students who understand how to overcome life’s financial challenges and are committed to demonstrating a determination to build useful lives, pursue higher education, and achieve career success.

Seth D. Ballstaedt, Esq. has handled thousands of bankruptcy cases under Chapters 7, 11, and 13. He has earned a reputation for being one of Nevada’s top-rated bankruptcy attorneys currently in practice. Seth is passionate about bankruptcy because he has witnessed how it completely transforms lives and gives people a fresh start in life. Starting on the right foot is always a plus, and Seth wishes to pass this advantage on to a college or college-bound student through this scholarship award.

Seth is a strong advocate for organizations devoted to helping others and enjoys giving back to his community. He understands that education is a critical cornerstone upon which future leaders are made, and providing financial assistance to those in need is crucial. The Fair Fee Legal Services strives to ensure that all people, regardless of their socioeconomic status, have access to academic, interpersonal, and community opportunities.
