The George E Allen Scholarship was created to honor the firm’s founder, George E. Allen, Sr., who overcame significant hardship to put himself through college and law school. At age twenty-nine, he became the youngest Mayor in the history of Lunenburg County and went on to become a Virginia Senator and one of the Commonwealth’s top trial attorneys. He established one of the premier personal injury law firms in the state with his three sons. For more information, or to apply next year, visit our website at allenandallen.com.
