Ciro Gaimari has a hybrid role at the firm as Mass Torts and Public Relations Coordinator.
Ciro joined Romanucci & Blandin in 2016, spending more than five years with the legal team as a paralegal turned Mass Torts Coordinator. In that role, he works directly with hundreds of clients and has played an integral role in daily operations. His role was later expanded to include contributing to the Communications team, leveraging his legal team experience and his education and interest in public relations, government relations, and community advocacy. His communications responsibilities include media relations, press conferences and other projects to further the firm’s branding and external relationships.
Ciro graduated from Miami University in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree in English with a concentration in film studies. While at Miami University, he was also a student-athlete, a member of the swim team, and founding president of the Miami University Racquetball Club. He completed his master's degree in public policy at Loyola University in Chicago in 2019.
Notable cases in which Ciro has been closely involved include a human trafficking case where a 16-year-old girl was murdered on Christmas Eve after being advertised for sex on backpage.com. Our team’s work on that matter also resulted in the girl’s mother, our client, testifying before a committee of the U.S. Senate, which then passed - on a bipartisan basis - significant reforms to internet laws regarding sex trafficking posts. Ciro has worked on several sexual abuse cases, mass torts involving the chemicals in Round Up and Zantac, environmental cases involving injuries from corporate chemical pollution in Union IL, and injuries from a hazardous materials incident in Beach Park, Illinois. His involvement also includes police misconduct cases and the firm’s representation of dozens of survivors from the Fourth of July parade mass shooting in Highland Park, Illinois.
