Meet Dan

Handsome, hard-working and possessing a genuine heart for the local community, well-known Hickey Lawyers co-owner and partner Dan Marino is an inspiration to those willing to reach out to those in need. […] The 37-year-old says part of the Gold Coast Lads Lunch was a chance encounter he had with a homeless man while in search of his Golden Retriever a few years ago.

“The experience has a huge impact on me, opening my eyes to a world of loneliness and destitution right in my own back yard,” says Dan. “I started asking myself how I could help people like the person I had come face to face with who was trying to survive life on the streets.”

“I spoke with my business partners at Hickey Lawyers about it and without hesitation began the fundraising campaign. “Truth be told, I made them all personally contribute to the cause in addition to having our business pay the admission the administration costs to run the initiative, similar to all events I run. Our business (Hickey Lawyers) had always nurtured a culture of giving back to the community, so this initiative  was consistent with what our firm represents.”
