Attorneys Neil O’Donnell and Michael O’Donnell of O’Donnell Law Offices recently spoke to students at Meyers High School to raise student awareness on the hazards of distracted driving. Their presentation was in conjunction with an initiative through the Pennsylvania Association of Justice.
The presentation was conducted as part of End Distracted Driving[EndDD]’s Student Awareness program. EndDD was founded by Pennsylvania trial lawyer and father, Joel Feldman, and his wife, Diane, after their daughter, Casey, was fatally struck by a distracted driver in 2009. The Feldman family wanted to do something in Casey’s name to help younger people be safer and have the opportunity to lead full lives.
With the help of Sixty for Safety, the American Association for Justice, the Pennsylvania Association of Justice and Anapol Schwartz, the Feldman family has reached over 41,000 high school students as part of this pilot program. The goal is to reach 250,000 students across the country.
Michael O’Donnell commented, “It was great to visit our alma mater and make this important presentation. We recognize the many dangers associated with distracted driving and are passionate about protecting our loved ones. We are happy to lend our firm’s support to this important initiative and the memory of Casey Feldman.”
