The Disability Advocate Scholarship

As an accomplished clinical psychologist and attorney at law, Dr. Bill LaTour has benefited from many years of education. He believes an education paves the way for a brighter future, and that no one should be excluded from this opportunity. It is this belief, along with his compassion for his Californian community, that The Law Offices of Dr. Bill LaTour is launching the Disability Advocate Scholarship.
