Time has flown by since we at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie first announced the finalists to our 2020 Rise to Shine Scholarship. It seemed like an impossible task to read all of the incredible essays you sent our way and pick just a handful of finalists. Little did we know that another truly difficult task was ahead of us. How could we possibly choose just one person to win the $1,000 scholarship from our group of fantastic finalists?
The weeks seem to have flown by as we at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie have been privileged enough to review the applications for our 2020 Rise to Shine Scholarship. While you may not have entered your professional lives just yet, you have all shown that you have something amazing to offer the world, so long as you have the courage to let yourself shine.
A new year, a new decade, a new scholarship! We at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie will once again be offering a nationwide $1,000 scholarship to help aspiring students achieve their dreams and pay for educational expenses. This award is available to both high school seniors and current college students who plan on continuing their education.
It does not matter who you are – if someone else hurt you, our firm believes they should pay for it. It does not matter how powerful your opponent is – justice is on the side of the wronged, not the wealthy.
The first year of running the Rise To Shine Scholarship has been wonderful for us! Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie reviewed over 200 essays to come up with five finalists. Then, we re-read essays and reviewed the transcripts of our finalists to come up with the undisputed winner:

For four years, our Suzanne Leslie has chosen by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys on their annual list of the 10 Best Lawyers in California, specifically, in the Orange County area. Now, we’re celebrating this award once again for 2019!
Ms. Leslie is the owner and managing partner of Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie, and has been with the firm for over 25 years. She started as a law clerk, and worked her way up to boss. And our team couldn’t be happier that her accomplishments have been recognized by a third-party organization!
Twenty-six years ago my daughter was born and during the delivery she swallowed a significant amount of umbilical fluid and was born unable to breathe on her own. Fortunately the hospital where we delivered was equipped with a neo natal unit and doctors were able to place her on a breathing machine within minutes–not only saving her life, but preventing many health complications in the future. She stayed in the neo-natal unit for nearly two weeks even although I was discharged within 24 hours after she arrived. My husband and I had to travel back and forth to the hospital to bond with her and for me to be able to provide her with breast milk. Needless to say, it was a stressful time in our lives.
As we celebrate over 40 years of helping clients successfully navigate the complexities of personal injury and get their lives back on track, we’re grateful for the solid reputation we’ve built in Southern California. This year especially, there seems no better time to refresh Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie’s brand and create new ways to bring even more value to our clients and partners we serve.
