PROVIDENCE (Nov. 3, 2015) – Jenna R. Pingitore was prominently featured in a news story on the Roger Williams University School of Law website discussing the Pro Bono Collaborative Guardianship Project.
The Pro Bono Collaborative at the Roger Williams University School of Law launched the Bradley Hospital Guardianship Project in 2008. The project, operated through Bradley Hospital’s Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities and in partnership with Barton Gilman, donates legal advice and counsel to the parents of disabled children turning eighteen, and when appropriate, establishes legal guardianship of their children.
Pingitore, a Roger Williams University School of Law alum, noted that she has handled approximately ten guardianship cases since 2012. “[T]hese are some of my most rewarding cases that I deal with. You really see tangible results, the positive impact you’re having on the child’s parents and on the entire family. It’s a very gratifying experience all around.” Pingitore said.
Pingitore is a civil litigator representing clients in court, in ADR proceedings and at depositions. She focuses her practice on medical and other professional liability defense litigation, business litigation and works with non-profit organizations. In addition to her work on behalf of the Guardianship Project, she serves on the Federal Bar Association Young Lawyers Committee, is a board member on the Endometriosis Foundation of Rhode Island, and is a 5K Committee member for the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation.
