Being a businesswoman is difficult enough and I've dealt with a number of attorneys as my business requires a lot of contract review and negotiation. I've been treated like a know-nothing, put off and ignored. Another client of Mr. Zavarella's introduced me to him. Here is a lawyer who is a FRIEND! Calls are returned promptly, he knows me and my business. Before we started he suggested that he come to my business and see what I do, asked me and my employees about the business. One afternoon I was sort of nervous about a meeting with one of my businesses larger clients and he even gave me his home phone "in case we had to count sheep together so you get some sleep"! Gino takes his clients seriously, respects what they know and makes people comfortable.
Every detail of my transaction was covered and thingws could not go more smoothly. I was quite pleased with this polished and professional counselor.
The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's office filed appeal on my case. I had difficulty finding somebody willing to "take on" the prosecutor. I met Gino Zavarella and he didn't hand me off to a secretary or paralegal or inexperienced lawyer. I spent a lot of time with him (and expected my fees to be much, much more than they were and than others had quoted). He's the kind of guy - a regular guy - you can sit down and have a coffee or beer with and hears what you're saying. Not only was he willing to take on the County Prosecutor but I WAS 100% POSITIVE that we had WON THE CASE when we left the courtroom. The end result = 100% Win!
