Dinnin & Parkins Associates

What began as McGivern & Dinnin Associates in 1963 and Price Associates in 1969 became Dinnin & Parkins Associates in 1992. With the merger of two family-operated agencies, father and son Thomas R. and Thomas E. Dinnin joined forces with father and son Jack and Thomas Parkins.  Together they brought over 35 years of experience in insurance to the agency.

In 1997, we expanded into the Kittanning area and opened the John F. Graff Insurance Agency.  Then, in 2013 we purchased the Newton-Lehman Agency which helped us to expand into the North Hills area of Pittsburgh.  Our agencies now provide thousands of individuals, businesses, and nonprofit organizations with quality insurance protection. 

At Dinnin & Parkins Associates, we are committed to giving our clients the best available insurance programs at the lowest possible price.  We strive to provide all our clients with a positive insurance experience. 


Our agency is also a Keystone partner agency.  Keystone is a community of independent insurance agencies that are in business for the same reasons we are –to provide peace of mind in the neighborhoods and communities where we live and work.

How does this benefit you? As a part of Keystone, we are backed by hundreds of other agencies like ours. This means Dinnin & Parkins Associates, Inc. can meet all of your needs, from the straightforward to the more complex. Independence means freedom –freedom from being required or incentivized to sell you a certain product, but it also means responsibility.

As your trusted independent agent, we take great pride in providing the best solutions based on your unique needs. And because of the partner community, no need is too challenging. We’re passing along the experience directly to you. Being connected to Keystone provides our agency with unique access to insurance companies. Our relationships enable us to elevate matters beyond the local or regional levels to which most agencies are bound. This level of connection and service is something you won’t find anywhere else.
