Local Law Firm Gives Back to Community
GAINESVILLE, GA – Coleman, Chambers & Rogers, LLP recently handed out two scholarships in the community to graduating high school seniors.
Coleman, Chambers & Rogers, LLP is a full service law firm which handles wrongful death, personal injury claims, family law and real estate matters.

This year the fourth Coleman, Chambers & Rogers Scholarship, available to children and grandchildren of active members of the Hall County Board of Realtors, was awarded to Sadie Abernathy, daughter of Brad and Jill Abernathy of Gainesville.
The Coleman, Chambers & Rogers First Responder’s Scholarship is a new scholarship that was endowed and created this year. The funding for this scholarship came from the fees earned in a case where the firm represented a family who lost their son in an automobile accident. In order to bring awareness to the role that law enforcement and first responders make every day, the scholarship was created for current first responders in Gainesville-Hall County, and/or their children and grandchildren to apply for. The first recipient, Grace Fawcett, is the daughter of Chris and Deanna Fawcett of Gainesville. Chris is an employee of the Hall County Fire Services.
“Our firm has always believed in philanthropy and giving back to the community in unique ways,” said John R. Coleman, partner at Coleman, Chambers & Rogers LLP, “these scholarships provide a vehicle to reach the younger generations in our community to help them further their education. Both of these ladies awarded this year were extremely impressive and worthy of these awards.”
The scholarship funds are administered by the North Georgia Community Foundation. For information on the scholarships, which will open for applications again in January 2019, visit www.ngcf.org/scholarships or call 770-535-7880.
