Angelo Marino, Jr. was born in Paterson, New Jersey, and came from a blue-collar working-class family. His father served in the Air Force in World War II and earned a Bronze Metal for valor. After the war, he worked seven days a week to support his family.
It is this background from which Angelo Marino Jr. comes. As a child, he shined shoes and delivered newspapers. He was on a work scholarship in college which required him to work to receive scholarship money. He collected firewood for his professors, babysat, tutored students, and worked in the science class to earn money.
While waiting to be drafted for the Vietnam War, he did social work in Cleveland Ohio. He was a crisis worker, which means that he handled the most difficult cases.
He was the first freshman law student to work for the law school which he did all three years he was in the law school, as well as doing other jobs to support himself.
After he graduated from The Ohio State University Law School, he found his home in Florida so that he could be near his parents who sought retirement in Florida.
He joined a law firm that handled everything, such as contract, criminal, and personal injury cases. After three years he became a full partner, and after five years, he left the firm and opened up his own law firm, bringing with him most of the old law firm’s members. The five years working with the firm gave him a strong background in various areas of law. During this time, he tried murder cases as well as many personal injury cases and was the Public Defender for the city of Tamarac, Florida.
