Our Commitments

In addition to being fully committed to our clients’ welfare and best interest, we are committed to servicing the most vulnerable both in the United States and overseas.  Below is a summary of our work in these areas:

SAFE KIDS TAMPA


Each month, Rinaldo Law Group sponsors child car seat installation and inspection at our Tampa office. During the visit, a child passenger safety technician teaches families how to transport children safely, making sure that car seats are installed correctly and that children are buckled up properly. Safety technicians also educate drivers and make sure that everyone in the vehicle is buckled up on every ride.

Safe Kids Tampa is led by St. Joseph Children’s Hospital of Tampa, and implements programs such as car-seat checkups, safety workshops and sports clinics, all designed to help parents and caregivers prevent childhood injuries.

ST. MICHAEL’S LEGAL CENTER FOR WOMEN AND CHILDREN


Rinaldo Law Group is actively involved with Saint Michael’s Legal Center (SMLC) and offers time and talent as well as financial assistance to support program operations. On the second Monday of each month, the firm participates in the Ask a Lawyer program at a local parish

St. Michael’s Legal Center for Women and Children, Inc. (SMLC), is a pro-bono Law Firm providing services to families who cannot afford legal services. These are the families who fall into the gap between just above the poverty line, and a sustainable family income. The “working poor”.

Initially, SMLC assisted women and families in their effort to collect child support. But as the needs of the poor became more evident, SMLC expanded to include family law, foreclosure defense and other property matters, creditors’ rights, and bankruptcy.
