On February 23rd, the 16th Annual Portage Lakes Polar Bear Jump will take place in Akron, Ohio. The Portage Lakes Polar Bear Club hopes to raise $25,000 for the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. The main supporters of this charity event is the law offices of Akron-based Kisling Nestico & Redick. The KNR staff will also be participating in this charity event putting a new spin on the saying “putting the plaintiffs on ice”.
The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank has been helping people since 1982 and has done their part in combating poverty and food shortages. The food bank has over 500 pantries, shelters, and hunger-relief programs established to help those who need it. The Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank services eight counties in Northeast Ohio: Carroll, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit, Tuscarawas, and Wayne counties.
Kisling Nestico & Redick have participated in this event for many years, raising thousands of dollars for charity in the process. They have always held a strong belief in giving back to the community any way they can. It’s reflected in Managing Partner Rob Nestico’s personal story of being seriously injured in a car accident in his teens. Nestico and his family were not well-represented and grossly taken advantage of in the process. This fueled Nestico’s desire to get into the practice of Law and to help others in similar circumstances and to help those in need.
Kisling Nestico & Redick has been a mainstay in the Legal community of Northeast Ohio since 2005. They have grown from a small practice in Akron to a statewide network of 30 Lawyers and Staff handling cases big and small. They have offices located in 11 cities throughout the state of Ohio. They have offices in Akron (HQ), Beachwood, Canton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Independence, Toledo, Westlake, and Youngstown.
