Committing to Justice



The Texas law firm of Hutchison & Foreman is proud to offer financial assistance to students who are pursuing law degrees. Attorneys Susan Hutchison and S. Rafe Foreman have dedicated a substantial amount of time and effort during their careers to advancing the legal profession and providing resources to aspiring and training lawyers. This passion for building a strong future for the legal community has led to this excellent legal team offering a $1,500 award each semester to a law student through the Hutchison & Foreman Committing to Justice Scholarship.

Committing to justice takes more than just words; it takes action. The commitment to justice for all has been an integral foundation upon which the law firm of Hutchison & Foreman was built. Building a successful law firm practice from Fort Worth to Lubbock and throughout Texas and the United States has required a deep and abiding commitment to justice for all. At this law firm, everyone matters to us, and each client deserves powerful advocacy and skillful representation from their trial warrior team. All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men and women to do nothing. Clients who hire our firm seek a commitment to justice born not solely of words but through deeds. At Hutchison & Foreman, we believe in action and results. We hope to evoke the same passion in future legal professionals.
