2019 Mainetti & Mainetti Scholarship

As Hudson Valley personal injury attorneys, Mainetti & Mainetti P.C. has a successful history of pushing back on the behalf of people who have been harmed or taken advantage of. We’ve obtained compensation for clients near Kingston, NY and Poughkeepsie on injuries resulting from car accidents, bicycle accidents, hit and runs, slip and falls, dog bites, and more.

We want to help the next generation of lawyers get their start. We are pleased to announce the creation of two scholarships that will help relieve some of the financial burdens of law school for qualifying students.
