Miami attorney endows scholarship to aid law students who are raising children

Jan 01, 2004

TALLAHASSEE—Lawrence Kellogg, a 1981 Florida State University College of Law graduate, has established a $100,000 scholarship to help students who have worked their way through undergraduate college or who are supporting children while attending law school at Florida State.

“I wanted to create a scholarship that I could have used when I was in law school,” said Kellogg, who raised his son, Jason, during his years at Florida State law school. “This is to help people who are working hard, are motivated to better themselves, and who are raising children. I knew a lot of people in that situation, and I know how hard that can be, and how rewarding it can be. These are the people who ought to be lawyers.”

Kellogg is a partner in the Miami law firm of Tew, Cardenas, Rebak, Kellogg, Lehman, DeMaria & Tague. Throughout his 22-year career, he has specialized in complex commercial litigation matters in State, Federal and Bankruptcy Courts, as well as arbitration forums. Jason Kellogg is a 2002 graduate of the Florida State University law school and is with the law firm of Akerman, Senterfitt & Eidson in Miami.

“I am grateful to the FSU law school for providing me and my son with an excellent education,” Kellogg said. “I hope that the scholarship will attract outstanding students to the school, and that future recipients will contribute to society, to the legal profession, and to the community.”

In expressing his appreciation for the gift, FSU Law Dean Don Weidner said, “Larry and Jason were both elegant members of our community, and it is wonderful that Larry has created this endowment to help other students who sacrifice so much to come to law school.”
