Proud to partner with Buckets Over Bullying 

“Few things can cause such fear, suffering and pain like bullying. The ongoing epidemic of bullying in our schools and neighborhoods has reached such a rate that it’s one of the central causes contributing to the overall deterioration of our communities. Bullying is preventing too many children from reaching their fullest potential and no child should have to suffer or live in fear anymore. Together we can end bullying, and that’s exactly what I intend to do.” 

– Attorney Larry Disparti, Owner & Founder Disparti Law Group Accident & Injury Lawyers
