The Balams Firm Scholarship

As a Community Partner, THE BALAMS FIRM is committed to recognizing talent and rewarding excellence. Our mission of The Balams Firm Scholarship is to provide an opportunity for deserving students to reach their potential by supporting the cost of higher education.


Congratulations to our 2022 Pursuit of Excellence scholarship recipient, Allison Hunter, a South Atlanta High School senior.

Allison exhibits a passion and commitment to her community, serving as an active leader in and out of school. Her leadership roles include Student Government President, Chairwoman of the Atlanta Board of Education and Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council, and President of the Young Mobilizers. In addition, Allison volunteers her time to organize multiple initiatives to care for the homeless population in Atlanta, and works to end inequities as an advocate with political and legislation campaigns to benefit South Atlanta. She does all this while maintaining top academic performance in her studies, earning Principal’s List honors and National Honor Society membership. Allison is excited to study political science and pre-law in college this fall.

We are honored to award Allison this scholarship to further her passion of becoming a more effective leader in reshaping Atlanta and similar communities.

    The Balams Firm did a wonderful job handling my personal injury case. I was able to get in touch with ReShea the day after my accident and she was very understanding and helped me find the care that I needed to address my specific needs.

    ReShea and I have litigated against each other for years and she very quickly earned by respect for her competency and professionalism. Since, I have referred many clients to her and they have all been exceptionally happy with her results and service.

    The Balams Law Firm hands down in the best in Atlanta. I had a injury at a hotel in Atlanta and I called 5 law firms, 3 of them being the big named ones you see on tv radio and they would not take me as a client. I found their number on google and talked to them and they took my case
