Serving Arizonans inside and outside of the courtroom
At the Law Offices of Robert E. Wisniewski, we are proud to serve injured workers and families throughout Arizona by offering experienced and compassionate legal assistance following a work-related injury, accident or illness.
We are also committed to serving our community in a number of other ways by investing our time and money to help our neighbors outside of the courtroom and our law offices.
Bob Wisniewski, the founder of the Law Offices of Robert E. Wisniewski, firmly believes in the importance of education. Having worked multiple jobs in college to earn a bachelor’s degree, Mr. Wisniewski was fortunate to enter the U.S. Armed Forces and he used the GI Bill to help pay for a Master’s in Public Administration and his law degree.
Irene and Ted Wisniewski Law Scholarship
Mr. Wisniewski recognizes how hard students must work and how the rising costs of education financially burden struggling families, which is why Mr. Wisniewski established a scholarship in honor of his parents: The Irene and Ted Wisniewski Law Scholarship at the University of Toledo College of Law.
When Mr. Wisniewski initially established this scholarship decades ago, it was meant for former military veterans who wanted to practice law in Arizona. However, since then, the scholarship has expanded to other eligible students—including those who do not have a military background nor wish to practice law in the state of Arizona. Mr. Wisniewski and his family are the prime sponsors of this endowed scholarship.
Community college scholarship
Recognizing the need for scholarships in the Hispanic community, Mr. Wisniewski and his wife, Jane, created an endowed scholarship through the Maricopa County Community College Foundation: Sister Regina O’Rourke and Father Thomas Moran Scholarship at Phoenix College in Arizona.
Many Hispanic individuals are ineligible for federal aid because of immigration deficiencies, so Mr. Wisniewski created this scholarship in honor of his aunt, sister Regina O’Rourke (a Sister of Charity of New York who worked in the Hispanic Spanish Harlem community as an educator) and in honor of Father Thomas Moran (a Claretian priest and the uncle of his spouse, Jane, who worked for over 20 years in Guatemala serving the needs of the underserved and the indigenous population).
The Sister Regina O’Rourke and Father Thomas Moran Scholarship is for students who are unable to secure federal aid through other programs. This ongoing scholarship has helped over 51 Hispanic students begin their education at Phoenix College, a community college of the Maricopa College system in Arizona. Mr. Wisniewski and his wife personally are the main donors to this scholarship program.
Kids’ Chance of Arizona
In addition to personally assisting individuals in education, Mr. Wisniewski is the primary individual contributor for Kids’ Chance of Arizona—a qualified 501(c)3 non-profit in the state of Arizona that raises funds to provide scholarships for students.
In addition, this law firm—Law Offices of Robert E. Wisniewski—is the largest sponsoring law firm in the state of Arizona. No other law firm contributes more to Kids’ Chance of Arizona to ensure the availability of scholarship money for injured workers’ children.
Mr. Wisniewski was one of the original incorporators of Kids’ Chance of Arizona and remained on the board for well over two decades. He now principally serves on the advisory board to the college scholarship and continues to actively financially support this worthwhile charity—both personally and through the law corporation.
