This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Hiring Clifford Lazzaro to represent me was the best decision I ever made. I didn't know the legal process of restraining orders and if I didn't have him by my side I am sure I would have lost the case. He is very knowledgeable and truly a master of his trade.

Mr. Lazzaro has been my attorney for many years and has also represented other family members. He has handled criminal and family matters and in both areas he has been able to obtain positive outcomes in all cases. If not immediately available, he promptly returns calls, keeps me in the loop and ensures I feel comfortable every step of the way. I have referred many to him and they have also been happy with him. The true sign of quality service in any business is consistency over time, and Mr. Lazzaro has proven results every time!

I am writing a special review today. If you need an attorney please do yourself a favor and hire Mr. Lazzaro. Not only has he represented us in the past with a dismissal in a criminal drug case he also recently represented my husband in municipal court for several traffic offenses. My husband had outstanding warrants in 4 different jurisdictions with many charges in each one. Mr. Lazzaro handled all 4 cases with diligent hard work as he always does. All charges were handled professionally and with great care. The outcomes of dismissals Mr. Lazzaro made possible has been amazing. He is very knowledgeable of all circuits of the court systems and gets the job done. Couldn't ask for any better. We went from facing a good amount of mandatory jail time to getting dismissals. Our family not only has an awesome attorney but a family friend. If you have concerns,, he has answers. once again,, HE IS THE BEST OF THE BEST!!!!
