About Pintas & Mullins Law Firm’s Quality of Life Scholarship
For nearly 40 years, Pintas & Mullins Law Firm has stood for our nation’s elderly population. Specifically, we fight for justice when these vulnerable members of our society suffer abuse within the nursing homes where they take residence. We believe deeply in the power of the law to change the lives of the elderly, and this belief drives us in our mission every day.
Now, we aim to widen our net of hope for the aging members of our society by encouraging others to think about ways we can all help improve the quality of life for the elderly, regardless of whether they live in nursing homes, with their families, or by themselves.
An Especially Timely Issue
The quality of life of the elderly has always concerned us at Pintas & Mullins Law Firm. We feel a greater urgency, however, in addressing this issue as we consider the fact that the fastest-growing age group in the country is the 85-plus age group. The aging of the baby boomer population demands that society start to consider the issues of the elderly now, rather than later. Pintas & Mullins Law Firm wants to start the conversation now, and this is why we created the Quality of Life Scholarship.
