Giving Back

The Mininno Law Office and its attorneys and staff have been proud supporters of various charitable organizations in and around the region. As John Mininno gives back, it shows his true dedication to the community.
This is part of our “Trial Lawyer Cool program” that identifies and supports worthwhile causes. Historically, insurance companies and lobbyist have targeted “Trial Lawyers” as the “bad guys.”

However, throughout the history of our country, trial lawyers have been the leaders in assuring justice for individuals who have been injured by or deprived rights from the government, tobacco companies, asbestos makers and polluters.
The efforts of trial lawyers have promoted safety and protected the environment. Product innovations such as flame retardant baby pajamas, seat and shoulder belts, air bags, machine guards, landfill clean ups, child proof medicine caps and more are all a direct result of trial lawyers ensuring that negligent wrongdoers are held accountable to the people they harm.

Trial lawyers are also huge supporters of local, state and national organizations that help people and “do good.”
Here at the Mininno Law Office, we have followed in this tradition and supported many charitable causes. Please visit the websites of just a few of the charitable causes highlighted in this section to learn more about these important organizations. We hope that you decide to support them as well.
