At Arnold & Itkin, we are committed to providing legal representation to those suffering catastrophic injuries, such as burns, as well as those who have lost loved ones from a wrongful death. Throughout the years, we have earned a national reputation for doing just that, winning billions in verdicts and settlements, including record-breaking cases. We stand up for the rights of victims of truck accidents, offshore accidents, work injuries, and more.
Outside of the courtroom, our legal team is equally dedicated to giving back to our local and national community through various initiatives. Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Jason Itkin founded the Arnold & Itkin Foundation to help pursue a broader definition of justice and seek to inspire hope in the midst of tragedy.
To empower and encourage future attorneys in their pursuit of similar goals, we have chosen to begin the Arnold & Itkin LLP Academic Scholarship. Our firm will award $5,000 to two current law students who share our passion for assisting the underprivileged and the victims of tragedy.
