Though the legal industry is known for catalysing social and policy change, there are few in this community who truly dedicate their time, efforts and resources towards consistently striving to improve the lot of those less capable. Johnny Pineyro, a Florida-based lawyer, aviator, investor and entrepreneur is one of them.
As the founder of his Florida Injury Law Firm, which provides legal assistance to clients who have been wrongfully injured in accidents, to try and get them fair compensation for their damages, Johnny Pineyro is a man well-accustomed to the struggles of those less equipped to fight for themselves.
Born to staunch Catholic parents who emigrated from Cuba and Spain, with little more than the clothes on their body, the lack of justice they fled from was what inspired him to take up law as a career. After completing his University and Law School education, he procured his license by the Florida Supreme Court to practice law in the Federal Southern and Middle Districts of Florida and the District of Colorado. Johnny is a member of the Florida Bar. He developed significant courtroom experience and quickly realised he wanted to represent the injured. Thus was born his Injury Law Firm and has, since then, dedicated his professional life to helping those injured primarily by corporations.
In addition to his professional accomplishments, Johnny is a pilot, author, entrepreneur, startup investor and active member of his local church and community.
After learning more about developing supply chain expertise in small and new businesses at MIT, Boston, he began several new ventures like Daedalus Transport, a logistics company operating across North America; ILUM Advertising, an outdoor advertising company catering to clients in US and Canada; BrokeIT, a same-day service delivery in the US for electronic device repair; NozamaPro, an e-commerce education site specialising in ‘selling on Amazon’ ; among others. His versatile personality is an example of a visionary who is also able to stay focussed on the here and now. His entrepreneurial capabilities demonstrate this lawyer’s sharp intellect, which he has used not just to serve customers and clients but also to be able to increasingly give back to the society.
His passion for aviation has led him to serve clients in aviation law as well. Pineyro was a member of the Kissimmee Airport Advisory Board for 3 years and serves on the Board of Directors of Challenge Air in Dallas, Texas and “Mercy Flight” in Leesburg, Florida. He is also a member of the Veterans Air Command, an organisation that provides free air transportation to post 9/11 combat wounded and their families.
He serves as a board member to “Angel Flight,” a group that enriches the lives of children with disabilities through aviation. He also dedicates countless hours to “Big Brothers and Big Sisters” and the “Make-A-Wish Foundation”.
His book called ‘Get the Justice You Deserve’ is a practical guide to legal aspects of personal injury for general public.
In 2015, he founded the Pineyro Education Foundation, which offers scholarships to underserved children in Florida. From a lawyer specialising in Injury Law, Johnny A Pineyro’s varied interests led him to sports and aviation and his enterprising spirit resulted in several successful businesses.
Johnny Pineyro is a man whose life’s work strives to fulfil the words of one of his favourite quotes by W. Churchill – “You make a living by what you get, but a life by what you give.”
