Marino Associates has developed a reputation as one of Pennsylvania’s most successful personal injury law firms. Led by founder Steven F. Marino, Marino Associates has built upon its initial foundation as a leading Philadelphia firm for personal injury, medical malpractice and civil rights violations to become a widely known stronghold throughout Pennsylvania.
Marino Associates has its principle office located at 301 Wharton Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The office is staffed with skilled trial lawyers and support members prepared to work with clients on the legal issues that they encounter. The firm found its origin as a result of the union of Steven F. Marino, Esquire and The Honorable Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Kevin M. Dougherty. Mr. Marino and Justice Dougherty came to meet when working as Assistant District Attorneys in the Office of the Philadelphia County District Attorney. Determined to develop talented trial skills and pioneer an aggressive law firm to defend against injustice in 1994, they established the law firm of Marino & Dougherty, LLP. Since the inception of Marino & Dougherty, LLP, Kevin M. Dougherty now serves as one of Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court Justices. In compliance with the Rules of Professional Responsibility, the firm changed its name to Marino Associates.
Steven F. Marino has risen to become one of Philadelphia’s preeminent trial lawyers and enjoys the success of serving individuals, families, and business entities with their legal needs. Steven F. Marino has been retained by some of the nation’s highest ranking collegiate athletes who have been involved in cases of abuse and other civil actions. Joseph Auddino joined the firm in 2016 after serving as an Assistant DA with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office.
