    Nino V. Tinari of Tinari and Associates at 1528 Walnut Street, Suite 1212, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19102 is the embodiment of every lawyer joke spoken. Others I spoke with called him a "Soulless serpent", "A Swindler first", " A Man With No Morals" He asked me for two simple harassment charges for Five(5) thousand. As we approached my trial and my dependence upon his firm deepening on my vindication; at the last minute Nino Tinari said he would need another Sixteen(16)thousand to take two simple harassment charges to trial down in Cape May, New Jersey. Much later after I pay him the 5K, I am told that he is not licensed to practice law in New Jersey so he assigns his daughter Mia Tinari who I did not know even existed. No problem to him ethically. Just another minor technicality to overcome. After some research I find out that he lost his license for thirty months for tax evasion and perjury. It seems Nino forgot that he was raising a second family without his lawful wife knowing the other family existed. He lied to the IRS to cover his expenses which could not be explained on paper since his whole life was a lie. Nice. And why does Pennsylvania re-certify this shyster, con man? How many other people‘s lives has he ruined or denied due process to? I doubt this pathological liar, Nino"The Narcissist" Tinari even cares. If you are considering Tinari and Associates. Think again. There are many in New Jersey and Pennsylvania that want his chop shop of jurisprudence closed down immediately and once and for all, for good. If you have a horror story about Tinari and Associates, contact us at and we will put you in touch with people whom you may be able to obtain monetary assistance from and legal advice on how you can sue Tinari and Associates and finally get justice. Go With Godspeed and learn as much as the law yourself as you possibly can. In today‘s world, everyone must. Anthony Parisi Sanchez Community and Social Activist
