Great and honest Attorney
Gene was there for me with a very stressful incident that took place on my property. Took charge and got the answers I needed from the courts. Took my calls on his off time (weekends) without hesitation. Then when the incident was resolved he told me it was on him no charge. That blew me away. Gene is an honest good hearted person.

24-7
Have known Attorney Zingaro for several years as an excellent defense attorney. I needed an attorney for a divorce and a friend recommended Zingaro. I could not have been more satisfied. He passionately represented me all the while making the children's well-being of the utmost importance through a difficult process. He does not keep "banker hours" by any stretch. He is legit available 24-7, including weekends. If you find yourself needing a competent, knowledgeable lawyer for almost any legal need, I highly recommend Attorney Zingaro. You won't be disappointed.

Excellent lawyer, highly recommended
I have been a client of attorney Zingaro since 2003. He has represented me in all my legal matters ranging from traffic court to divorce. I have been 100 percent sastified with his work. His staff is also very helpful, they always keep me informed and are quick to answer any questions I have had. I have recommended attorney Zingaro to all my friends and family members who have asked for legal representation. They have been just as pleased with his legal representation as I have been. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend
Gene was recommended to me from a family friend who was an Attorney. I was going through a divorce and the Attorney I was working with was not doing me any justice. Gene jumped in and was 100% committed to my case, he was flexible, available and passionate about the outcome we were seeking. The case ended up going to trial and due to his diligence he was able to uncover information that experts did not. I don't know who else would have given the amount of time and attention to my case that Gene did and we were awarded a fair outcome.

I'm confused
Eugene zingaro has represented multiple people in my family for different legal matters. Every instance has included phone calls that go way beyond office hours along with meetings at diners,rest stops and anywhere else that was requested and needed. The last thing I could ever accuse him of is neglecting his clients needs. As a former officer in the Marines this man has shown nothing short of integrity when it comes to his word. For any of the three folks who might have had an issue with their lawyer there is no way they could question this man's integrity. If he says he will do it then he will do everything in his power to make it happen. I would hire him for any legal matters I may have in the future and I advise you to sit down with him and hear him out. Thank you Gene for your service to our country and to my family.

Eugene Zingaro
Mr. Zingaro was my divorce attorney and he was always professional and accommodating. He met me on weekends or after hours due to my job and i really appreciated it. He was transparent with the status of my case and very knowledgeable. I would and I do recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney.

Goes in the trenches with you, does know the word defeat
I found Gene honest straight forward. He did not sugar coat the possibilities. Gene handled my divorce, and during the divorce process I fell into addiction, making g the case difficult for anyone, but some how Gene managed to work with the other dogs with intelligence and patience, right up to day of trial, and 1 hour before court he got them to agree with the important things ending in my favor. Not only that Gene was right by my side during addiction when everyone else gave up on me, getting into a rehab 2 hours away visiting me every weekend. I had 2 other case Gene covered for me both criminal, one assault and breech of peace that he got dismissed and off the record Waterbury, and another severe threatening charge 2 counts. Gene at 1am in the morning left his family to come post my bail 1000 against 10000 bond. As a result I had two protective orders and x wife took me to court for some custody. Gene was diligent with prosecutor, to get me programs, then working with my probation officer to the point a year later charges dropped to disorderly conduct and 90 dollar fine. The civil case Gene did nothing but stress to me and the court the importance of the kids having time with father and take part in their life decisions. The case ended in my favor, again I was amazed cuz of the criminal charge and my addiction history. Ione of the things I like was his confident approach, win attitude, I was a little taken back first impression I judged it as arrogance, but came to realize it was driven by passion and an extensive experience not only from the legal aspect, but from every day Life understanding of, addiction , family, Traumas, relationships, emotional struggles, ,mental illness, divorce, and parenting. All in all I had 3 satisfying cases, a divorce with Gene all as the underdog, and they ended with me being satisfied and grateful the work if Gene Zingaro. From the financial aspect he was reasonable, but less then another lawyer I consulted with for criminal cases, and alot less then a local lawyer I consulted with for my divorce.the only concern is he was very busy with cases and i worried about my cases but not only was it a non-issue, but it reiterated to me how good people know he is for a reasonable charge.

I would highly recommend Eugene Zingaro. He is highly skilled, very professional and well respected in a court room. He explained everything to me and made the process as painless as possible.

Case concluded with excellent outcome
Attorney Zingaro handled my case professionally and in a way that never embarrassed me personally. I had complete confidence from start to finish. The outcome was favorable and I am now living without a shadow hanging over me . I pass his name and number along to anyone who needs it.

Negligent - Stay Away
Zingaro & Cretella lied to me incessantly and mishandled my case to a point their grotesque negligence made me lose everything I had. They told me things like 'you can't impute income in family court'. And how women are NOT eligible for child support with two young children and an ex making over $500,000 a year. These folks have no idea what the law is, or they are absolute con artists who should not be in practice. Attorney Zingaro's behavior was not only egregious, but also highly inappropriate. My last interaction was grabbing my file and leaving their office in fear for my safety. He was physically and emotionally out of control. Even his staff was scared. Please reach out to me before choosing this firm to represent you. I will gladly supply you with documentation and details. Please take this decision very seriously.

Useless
Never responded to any texts, calls or emails, never answered any questions, never contacted me when anything happened with my cases. Ended up with the same results I would have if I hadn't spent $3000! Totally pointless and useless to have hired this lawyer.

Don't waste your time
Attorney Zinger is a waste of time and money. He is not only unprofessional but rude. In our initial meeting he spent the entire time talking about how costly everything would be not how he would pursue my case. I've found a different attorney who was confident without being pompous and has worked in my best interest every step on the proceedings.

Bait and switch....
Similar to the review already online, Gene appears to care when you meet him but once you sign he drops the ball with his indifferent and callous approach to his clients. I signed with him to help take care of an issue I had with my previous attorney who was disbarred. Gene promised he'd help Resolve my issues, claimed my previous attorney was a horrible person and said he gave lawyers a bad image and wanted to help me. I come to find out days after signing with Gene that he also was representing in court the lawyer who had just caused me and my family and other families locally enormous amount of financial troubles. Genes ethics are questionable and he truly doesn't pay attention once you sign with him.

Horrible and costly experience....
I hired Att. Zingaro law firm for a divorce where I was pressured by one of his associates to sign so I wont have any more issues with my ex-wife! Big mistake, as it appears that he was more concerned with my ex-wife's well-being that mine. My ex-wife also filed criminal charges against me that Mr.Zingaro stated that he could handled. My case went on docket 7 times at which time the court ordered my arrest since I was not notified of the said. However, I was deployed and he did not notify regarding the issue on time and I am not sure if he notified the court. Needless to say that my last name was spelled incorrectly in court and even though I tried to inquire on my case, I could not because of the spelling error. His rude secretary attempted to blame me for the spelling error. Once I was able to check the status of my case, I paid him once more to handle this and instead, I was hit with a 25000 bond for failure to appear! Thankfully I found another attorney who is handling my case now. Even though Zingaro appears as a good attorney, he sends various associates to deal with the cases and of course they are not aware of all the details of the case. I am very disappointed with his service because I ended up with horrible divorce conditions, a huge bond and my charges were not dropped because the judge thought I was fleeing the justice when in fact I was deployed. I have hired now a different attorney to deal with my divorce conditions and we are getting good results and a criminal attorney who has helped my case. The law office of Zingaro did not worth the money.
