Corporate Citizenship in Action: Kisling Nestico & Redick Helps Disadvantaged Kids

The Ohio personal injury law firm of Kisling Nestico & Redick is giving back to the community in several dramatic ways. The personal injury law firm, one of the largest in the state, is seeking to prevent accidents though programs in its KNR Cares About Kids initiative. KNR Cares focuses specifically on highlighting the dangers of texting while driving, and the need for bicycle riders to wear helmet to prevent head injuries.

Through participating in area corporate fundraising events, and outright donations by Kisling Nestico & Redick, the law firm has begun an annual scholarship fund competition open to college students who provide the best proposal to illustrate the dangers of texting while driving. In 2019 a $5,000 scholarship was awarded for a soon to be completed television advertisement with the story line of teenagers riding in a car with a blind folded driver. On the bicycle safety front, KNR Cares recently donated 500 bicycle helmets for youth attending YMCA summer camps in Youngstown and Toledo, Ohio, along with 25 additional helmets awarded through a social media give away campaign.

To date, Kisling Nestico & Redick has raised or donated over $300,000.00 for disadvantaged child related food banks and other community organizations, and their actions usually address a specific need for those children in a particular community. KNR Cares has sponsored a backpack food give away to ensure children who receive free meals as part of the school lunch program in the Cleveland Ohio area did not go hungry over the Spring Break period, and “The Coats & Cans for Kids Turkey Giveaway” in the Columbus area.

The Kisling Nestico & Redick law firm, which has grown to 38 attorneys and over 130 support staff, was started in 2005 and has ten locations throughout Ohio. KNR was recognized as a Premier Law Firm by Newsweek magazine in 2017 and Managing Partner Rob Nestico and other attorneys in the firm have been previously selected among the Top 100 Lawyers in Ohio, named to Super Lawyers, and nationally as a Top 100 Trial Lawyer by the National Trial Lawyers Association. To date Kisling Nestico & Redick has obtained $450 Million for their clients through verdicts and settlements.
