About Me

I was born in Brooklyn,New York and attended Archbishop Molloy High School and St.Johns University.I relocated to the Delaware Valley in 1980 to attend the University of Pennsylvania Law School.I have practiced in Philadelphia,Montgomery,Chester,Bucks and Berks counties and extensively in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania since 1986 representing debtors and creditors.I was a solo practicioner for 8 years in the Collegeville area where I have lived for 19 years.

    James W Zerillo tells the truth about the law without being brutal and most people prefer that their lawyer have some compassion for what they are going through. This can be a delicate path to walk, and Mr Zerillo is walking the walk not just talking the talk. I am proud to offer James my heartfelt endorsement.
