Timothy Zerillo, along with his associates and staff, will forever be held by me in the highest regard. Tim and his firm represent the pinnacle of service and legal expertise. When I was sued by a former business associate, Tim immediately put me at ease and assured me that every course would be explored in pursuit of a resolution. He has exceeded every expectation - I cannot say enough good about Timothy Zerillo and his team of legal professionals.

Tim and all of his staff has been there to help me with any problem i run into even if it did not have anything to do with my personal injury case. I would recommend him to anyone fro anything. He is a very personable guy and makes you feel comfortable from day one. I was confident with his work and very pleased with the outcome for my settlement.

Tim has handled several cases for me over the last 10+ years, and I continue to have him represent me to this day. From misdemeanors, to felony, to federal indictment Tim has been willing to work to whatever extent possible for me. He has, on a few occasions, even had impromptu meetings outside of normal business hours with friends of mine who found themselves in trouble. It is apparent that the well being of his clients is TOP PRIORITY. This, along with an incredibly assuring demeanor, diligent work ethic, and vast knowledge of the law make him my first choice as criminal defense attorney.

Tim is the consummate professional. What elevates his status is his intelligence, experience, wit, charm and caring nature. He really makes you feel 100% comfortable leaving the driving to him. From the first day meeting Tim I knew the right decision was made. In troubled times there is no greater feeling than having some level of security and comfort. With Tim Zerillo......you have that and more.

Tim Zerillo recently represented my family in a very complicated and sensitive family matter. Tim selflessly stepped up to defend us in what was against all odds. We had no hope, no case. Tim worked seamlessly and gave all he had. He was willing to do "whatever it took" to rescue my son, and he did. This was my mission. I needed a miracle, I knew I was asking for the impossible, yet I still required counsel for damage control. Tim worked for my family like it was his own. I was coming from a very desperate place, I hadnt slept or eaten in 3 weeks, I was a nightmare client. In 24 hours from meeting Tim, we left the court with nothing short of a miracle. I will forever be grateful to Tim. Attorney Zerillo kept our family together and saved my baby from a life of fear and abuse. Words are inadequate.

I have used Tim Zerillo several times over the years to handle both complicated civil litigation and a serious criminal matter. Tim is dedicated, brilliant and completely trustworthy. When he says he will do something, he does it. Highest recommendation.

Tim is a skilled and aggressive divorce lawyer. In working with him I have continually been impressed by the unique strategy he develops based upon each client's needs. He then sticks with this strategy through the inevitable twists and turns of a divorce and in doing so I have continually seen him achieve great results for his clients.
