Both founding members of the firm, Brad Scott and David Vicknair, are natives of Lafourche Parish and received undergraduate bachelor’s degrees from the College of Business Administration at Nicholls State University. The $1,000.00 annual scholarship is a small way that our firm can give back to aspiring students and future leaders in the legal community in our state and country. We recognize the strength of our legal system is the interest and passion of young, new members of the bar who can contribute and make legal services more readily available to our communities across this state and country.
