About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

Bill Vinsko, Esq. has been named a Super Lawyer Rising Star every year since 2005 in Pennsylvania.  With extensive experience in litigation, both in real estate, personal injury, business and corporate matters and election law, Attorney Vinsko has been able to represent clients in all Pennsylvania Courts, from Common Pleas to the Supreme Court.  He was named Assistant City Attorney for the City of Wilkes-Barre in 2002, and, at 26 years old, became the youngest ever to serve as a City Attorney for Wilkes-Barre. 

 

Attorney Vinsko also was successful in arguing the case of In Re: Carroll in 2006, a case before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on state ethics law for candidates in the Commonwealth.  The decision led to a change in the Pennsylvania Legislature regarding how candidates must report income on their financial affidavits.  The change in the law made it easier for candidates to get on the ballot and also allowed for more accurate financial disclosures for candidates.

 

Bill is in practice with his brother, Brian Vinsko, Esquire, who is the firm's primary Personal Injury attorney.
