Posted by Helen
Tim took over from my first (sub-standard) attorney at a critical juncture in my divorce proceedings, and saw me through very long, frustrating and difficult negotiations and mediation to an outcome that was much better than I expected. Tim is an experienced, knowledgeable, and tenacious attorney, with a keen sense of strategy, who keeps a very cool head. He is an excellent listener, very good with figures, and much more detail-oriented than most attorneys. As a woman, I really appreciated his respectfulness; his excellent sense of humor helped to lighten the emotional load. I cannot recommend him more highly.

I consider Tim and his firm an asset to my company. I would and have recommended him to many individuals and businesses over the past three years that he has represented Westbrook Creek. In business when you need your attorney there is no time to wait and his firm has always provided the response time I needed.
I have used them for strategic business planning, regulatory compliance, networking, and contract negotiations . Tim is a super smart guy and I consider his perspective unique and valuable.

I was a client and hired this attorney. His Avvo rating was superb and described as being extremely genuine, intelligent, detailed and articulate as an attorney. I conducted my own research of former clients, testimonials and current litigators and published works by Attorney Tim Zerillo, which resulted in an initial consultation, then an immediate hiring. Attorney Zerillo is very polite and welcoming. He was willing to speak in great detail about my pending case and possible outcomes. He made it clear he was willing to take my case to trial if there were no other agreeable terms reached during legal process. I faced two different counts of Domestic Violence, which were against an adult son. There were four witnesses whom clearly collaborated on a story, after they wouldn't leave my residence, in which I learned they were conducting illegal activities. In cases like this there are numerous factors to take into account. Loss of your 2nd Amendments rights to ever bear arms, possess weapons, ammunition and more in this country. Attorney Zerillo, used his detailed knowledge from his own research and publications on the matter to clearly defend my rights and to clearly understand what was at stake. This attorney works with you. By this, I mean if he gives you a list of documents, photos or events to track down, those he believes will benefit you or the case, follow his lead and provide them. He recommended an awesome Private Investigator to work with his firm on the case. His brain does not stop working. Attorney Zerillo has a clear devotion to his clients and reaching the best outcome for all parties. One of my counts was dismissed and after agreeing to a deferred or filing of one other count, with good behavior, I will not have any convictions. His commitment to advise you of the motions he can and will file, to fight for you all the way and to work truly on your behalf, not several cases at once, or at least in your presence. Unfortunately, some attorneys can’t even remember your name or charges pending. You get what you pay for and I feel Timothy Zerillo is one of the top Criminal Attorney's in the area, in my opinion. His memory and recollection to important factual detail was superb. His attentiveness to flaws in the prosecution’s case was a unique trait and quite impressive. You, or a friend or loved one, who may find themselves in a similar uncomfortable setting, like myself someday, at least, owe yourself the opportunity to hear him out and the plan he would develop to present you with the best representation possible. I feel from my case experience, Attorney Timothy Zerillo is a clear "no brainer" when consulting and hiring a true litigator and legal representation at such a vulnerable stage in your life. This may be the best choice you ever make. It was sure gratifying to feel at the end of the case, my representation was first class and worth every dollar spent!

Mr Zerillo helped me tremendously. Mine was a difficult case and he chose the best possible defense he could.He fought for me and presented my side of the story which allowed for the determination of my case to be as successful as it could. He is a man that cares about his client and their family. He was kind and helpful to them and answered all their questions effectively whether on the phone, in person or email. He was quick to respond even on weekend and holidays. He was thorough with investigations and bringing other experts when necessary. Mr Zerillo has a true understanding of the clients side regarding family and the emotions. A great "bed-side manner". I am grateful to have found him.

I was charged with an serious drug offense that could've very realistically cost me 20 years in prison. I interviewed several attorneys and decided to use Tim because for several reasons. He knew exactly what to do from the start and was knowledgable from the get go where the other attorneys were clueless, and they weren't discount attorneys. Tim and his staff were proactive from the beginning, his office is literally next door to the court house, all my motions and filings were near instantaneous which is huge + in my book because there was never a moment of wait time or uncertainty. I always knew what was next and what was expected of me to help my cause. Tim does not take on public defender cases so he is not bogged down with the BS that I'm sure comes with it. I have learned this if you stand for judge in any matter with any serious weight to it you want to have a PAID lawyer. It shows how serious you are about the case and I believe a deterrent to the prosecution in thinking that it will be an easy case that they can keep driving over you with the bus you have been thrown under. I went from fear of losing everything I had ever worked for or aspired to achieve to knowing I can now do what I need and want to do to in life to better it for myself and everyone around me. My case was open and shut for the prosecution..so I thought. With the magic Tim and his staff worked I thought it only fitting to change his contact information in my phone to Houdini. Lawyers cost money. Money can be made in time, but time can never be gained back. Don't go bargain lawyer when it hits the fan. You get what you pay for I believe, but with Tim I think I got much more than I paid for. Only thing better than having Tim is your lawyer is never needing a lawyer at all and let's face it if you're reading this, you need Tim (Houdini) Zerillo. Tim again thank you so much for all you have done. I am forever grateful

I have been dealing with lawyers in the past regarding a very difficult divorce. I found Mr. Zerillo through AVVO who rated him very highly. I contacted him regarding some questions concerning my child and his immediate answers helped more than any advice that I have gotten in the past four years. It made me feel like somebody that cares. Thank you so much, Mr. Zerillo!

Tim, in my opinion is an extremely professional Attorney!! His office got back to me in a timely manner asked questions and answered mine to the best of their ability. I was unlucky to obtain his services because he was not licensed in my state. But if i had I know I would of had a great attorney.

In my quest for the best lawyer to represent my case, I came across Tim by simply searching online for the 'top lawyers in Maine'. I met with a number of different attorney's, but knew from the minute I met Tim that he was perfect for my case. He was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and understanding of my situation. He listened, provided guidance and with our first brief interaction he was able to put me at ease knowing that he was in charge. He consistently made me feel comfortable and confident in his approach. He was incredibly responsive, insightful, and extremely well-versed in the legalities associated with my case. He was able to effectively communicate each phase of the process in a way that I could understand, and make informed decisions along the way. I would definitely recommend Tim, and would use him again in the future if there was a need. At the end of the day, he pursued and achieved an outcome that satisfied my needs while asserting himself as an effective winner.
