  • Jeremy Andrew Zarzycki

    Mr. Fontana is an excellent attorney and educator. I've attended many classes he's taught on various aspects of criminal law and always been impressed with his expertise. He's also one of the helpful, polite, and intelligent lawyers in the community. I don't know anyone who doesn't have the utmost respect for Nick and his expertise. I fully endorse him.
