At Dickmann Reason Bogigian & White, we understand that the right attorney can make all the difference – and we also understand that a lawyer doesn’t need to be in a high-profile legal battle to make an impact on the life of their clients.
When people get in touch with us, we make sure to provide them with care, attention, and a legal guide that can help them map out their futures. We know that everyone should spend some time thinking about how they can care for their family and friends, and we believe that this compassion for your loved ones can make the world a better place.
Retirement and estate planning is all about looking towards the future – and what better way to look towards the future than to support scholars who are looking to enter the legal profession? To encourage students who are dedicated to the same values that we uphold at our firm, we are introducing the Dickmann Reason Bogigian & White Scholarship for the future.

By taking steps to plan ahead and demonstrating an understanding of the importance of wills, trusts, and more, the successful applicant will also prove they embody our key values: Compassion for those closest to us, and keeping the wellbeing of our families and friends in our hearts.
