Marc C. Panepinto
I was born and raised in Western New York. My father was a construction worker and my mother a hairdresser. I was the first in my family to go to college, graduating from the University at Buffalo where I played football and was captain of the 1987 team. I worked my way through school on the construction site as a Local 210 Laborer where I learned the value of hard work.
After graduating with honors, I studied Labor and Industrial Relations at the Graduate College at the University of Illinois. Inspired to help families like my own, I traveled the country and helped organize low-wage workers. As a union organizer working for the Laborers’ Union, I successfully ran organizing campaigns for poultry workers in Mississippi, nurses in Northern California, and immigrant demolition workers in New York City. The experience of empowering working people and building successful campaigns developed the skills that I now use in representing our clients.
My ambition is to empower working families and to help them build the skills necessary to fight and survive. That is why I focus my practice on representing hard working people in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases.
