Carter Cares

We’re not just dedicated to getting our clients the money they deserve; we also strive to better the lives of our youth. These five high school seniors embody the honor, dedication, and integrity necessary to become exceptional young leaders.

Carter Mario Law Firm thanks our exceptional CarterCares Scholarship winners and their families for a wonderful banquet to end the school year. CarterCares awarded five high school seniors a total of $10,000 in scholarships.

Students were selected based on their academic merits, extra-curricular activities, and volunteer work for charities such as Guilford High School’s Unity Club, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Fishing with Vets, New Haven Reads, and Special Olympics.
