Great Lawyer
Mr Zisa has represented myself and a few family members. We where all satisfied with the great service he provided us. His staff is also great. I really recommend him.

Caring and Insightful
I spoke to Mr Zisa yesterday about a real connundrum where I have a family member who refuses to leave a home owned by my Alzheimer's stricken mother. The funds from the house are sorely needed for her care, but the family member is frustrating efforts to sell the property and refuses to pay rent. Mr Zisa gave me more than an hour of his time for free, listened gave excellent ideas on the way forward and even called me back with further useful information. I really appreciated his concern and empathy, not to mention his knowledge of the relevant subject matter law. I will likely hire him as my counsel

Look no other way in Hackensack!
Mr. Zisa has represented me in two occasions and did an exceptional job in both cases. He was always easy to reach throughout the process and, when not available, he always returned my calls promptly. The staff of the firm is also very helpful and knowledgeable. Both of my cases seemed very difficult to win but Mr. Zisa took care of them as if he was assisting a friend or a relative. Regardless of the type of case, his vast experience, and great litigation skills, are a great advantage that will most likely result in the best outcome for his clients(as happened to me in both of my cases)!

I hired Joe as my Real Estate attorney. Joe worked tirelessly to seal the deal on a very complicated closing. He worked to get me top dollar and I am so happy that I found him. Finding a Real Estate attorney was very difficult for me. Joe is also a Criminal attorney, so he is very busy, but he insured that my closing went through without hitch. Would highly recommend Joe as an attorney for Real Estate or Criminal. He is funny, pleasant, caring and compassionate and has a heart of gold!

Really Advocates for you
I got my first summons ever for a careless driving, and of course I was panicking because I did not know what to expect. But Atty. Zisa constantly reassured me that everything will be ok. On my court date, he made sure to tell the Judge that I was a seminary student and was hence in no way a threat to society, and likewise amended my careless driving to an unsafe driving. The Judge consequently gave me the minimum fine for unsafe driving, which he said was rare. My goodness, I'm so relieved, because I saved a little over $100 for the fines. Really glad to have Atty. Zisa as my lawyer.

Joseph Zisa is a "CAN DO," Honest and Compassionate Attorney
We live in California and our mother (age 90) lived in New Jersey. We were visiting our mom and discovered that she did not have a current Medical Directive or Living Trust. Attorney Zisa was so accommodating. He came out to our car to meet our mom, explained why these documents were so important and quickly gained her trust. We were leaving to go back to California in a few days, and Attorney Zisa made sure that we had a current Living Will and other documents before we left. We lost Mom a couple months ago. Her health care desires and the inheritance process went smoothly and quickly! Thank you for all you did for us at such a fair price. Sincerely, Glenn and Dona

100% satisfaction
After recently having been represented by Mr. Zisa, I am pleased to say that, due to his years of experience, knowledge, and diligence, my case was resolved swiftly and painlessly. I sincerely doubt that that I would have attained the positive results of my case without his guidance. I highly recommend his services to anyone needing an attorney.

Next on the Bench
I am a client who has known Mr. Zisa for many years—not only as an attorney, but a friend. Joseph follows in the footsteps of his late Father, Hon. Joseph Zisa Sr., with the instilled and highly personal commitment of dedication and priority first and always to the Law; and application of the highest standard of service for his clients and his community. Joseph's knowledge and guidance provides the best preparation of applicable law for a client's case so every resource for a just and satisfactory resolution is provided. I have witnessed as he has dedicated his entire professional life and energy to serve his clients and the Law. The State of New Jersey will be proudly served if he is appointed to the Bench.

My Lawyer...the Best!
Joseph C. Zisa literally 'came to my rescue' with the sale of my house that was being horribly delayed due to the removal of an oil tank (and its remediation) that was insured up to ONE MILLION DOLLARS. The original lawyer just accepted the slow pace in closing due to several circumstances which Joseph very quickly reviewed, facilitated getting all the 'right parties' involved on behalf of the buyer, remediation personnel, insurance members and myself...to closed within 6 weeks from my first contact with him. You can't beat that. All involved were fine with this swift action headed by Joseph...buyer and seller in particular... which is all that the bottom line counts. He is the best! Use him!!!

Worst lawyer in New Jersey
Worst lawyer in New Jersey… Better off getting a public defender. Had the interest of lining his own pockets rather than the best interest of his clients.
