If you were to ask someone to describe the average law firm, it’s unlikely that their description would match that of Kisling Nestico & Redick. The Ohio law firm has gained a positive reputation for their defense work involving personal injuries, but they are also making a name for themselves in the state for their charitable works.
One of these works, known as the KNR Cares About Kids campaign, focuses on preventing personal injuries caused by texting and driving, or not wearing a bike helmet. By spreading information to children early about these dangers, they hope to help prevent any future personal injuries caused by negligence. Besides informational initiatives like this one, they’ve also made strides in charitable efforts to help disenfranchised youths in lower class communities. These charitable works include providing food, school supplies, and clothes to children in need.
Kisling Nestico & Redick has also made steps to provide children with scholarship opportunities. The aptly named Stop Distracted Driving Scholarship awards $5,000 to the student who comes up with the best proposal to reduce distracted driving. In 2019, the scholarship was awarded to Elianna Norin, who designed a public service announcement which compared distracted driving to driving with a literal blindfold on. The PSA was such a success that it is being produced as a television ad in the state – an honor that the young woman will be able to put on not only college applications, but also a professional resume if she chose to.
While the firm has made admirable forays into charity and other public works, their main source of pride continues to be their exemplary work as one of the largest personal injury firms in the state. With 38 total lawyers and and 130 people in support positions, the firm has a large collection of resources to service clients. Started in 2005, the firm has quickly gained a reputation for quality, in-depth service. In June of this year, the firm even won a Webby award for their website. Chosen out of more than 13,000 applicants, the firm was part of the 20% to receive honors for their user-friendly web design.
